BTA/The Villages Claim 2021 Title

U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship

Following on from their loss in the postponed 2020 U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship Final, BTA/The Villages made history on Saturday 20 March as the first all-American team to win the title, with a 6-5 win against defending champions, Hawaii Polo Life, at International Polo Club Palm Beach. 
Going into the Final both teams looked impressively strong, with 3-0 undefeated records apiece. This evenness was reflected in the several ties in the scores which occurred throughout the Final, but in the end it was Paige Boone who scored the winning neckshot in the last minute of action, securing BTA/the Villages a 6-5 win, Boone commented, “Tommy [Biddle] told us before we went into the final chukker ‘you worked really hard to get here, you're tied and this is your time. So if you want it bad enough, go and get it.’ And we did!” The win was even more impressive as each of the winning players were playing their own horses, Most Valuable Player Kylie Sheehan commented, “Having a team of four local players made the win that much more special because we showed them what we can do. We're all playing our own horses and run our own organizations. I think it's very exciting for American polo going forward and I know a ton of amazing up-and-coming American players, so I'm hoping to see more all-American teams.” El Pico, owned by Adolfo Cambiaso and played by Mia Cambiaso, was named the Best Playing Pony.
