Beneath a picturesque sky, the Brandywine Polo Cub ushered in its 2015 season before a welcoming crowd of more than 500 last weekend, who greeted the new campaign with a tilt of the glass and a nod to the decorum of the sport.
For the eighth consecutive season, the booming voice of public address announcer Bradley Hendrix blared over the grounds of the playing pitch, as families, associations and groups stood one on side of the field, enjoying the rush of horses, the mechanics of the sport and the chess-playing involved in shifting from one side of the field to another.
The Brandywine Polo Club continues its season with matches on May 29 and June 7 at the Brandywine Polo Club, beginning at 3 p.m. The season continues until late September, and features several Friday evening events which begin at 5:30 p.m. For a complete schedule, visit www.brandywinepolo.com .
