Santa Clara vs Beverly Polo

The Joe Barry Memorial Cup Final is set to be played at International Polo Club Palm Beach on Sunday 17 January between Santa Clara and Beverly Polo.

In 2020, Palm Beach Equine secured the trophy and they returned in 2021 with two of their four players (Scott Swerdlin and Gringo Colombres), this year saw the defending champions joined by Beverly Polo and Santa Clara, with the three teams competing from Wednesday 6 January for their place in the Final on Sunday 17 January.

Both teams met previously in the qualifying stages, with Santa Clara securing a narrow 11-10 win against Beverly Polo in overtime; will they be able to replicate their earlier success?
