In addition to the regular host clubs – Legends Polo Club and Brookshire Polo Club – in 2023, a new location has been secured. Dripping Springs Ranch Park Event Center & Arena located just West of Austin.
Dripping Springs Ranch Park
A 130-acre facility complete with covered arena, stalls, RV, bleachers, and everything else needed for our event. “We are very excited to add Ranch Park Dripping Springs to the calendar for TAL in 2023,” says TAL committee member Karl Hilberg. “With over 120 players and 280 horses competing in 2022, we needed to find a location close to some of the participants with a covered arena and plenty of stabling. With some temporary build-out to make the arena suitable for polo and lots of room for spectators, Ranch Park looks will fit the bill.”
For 2023, TAL will continue with the 4 flights as it did in 2022. The flights are 6-9 goal and C Flight on Fridays, 0-3 goal on Saturdays, and 3-6 goal on Sundays.
New and returning sponsors on board for 2023 including U.S. Polo Assn, Galvin Insurance Agency, Patton Legacy Sports, Nutrena Feed, Royal B Threads, Catena, Casablanca Polo, Jackrabbit Tack, Elite Motion & Performance, Aubone Polo Mallets, Murrell Photography, JD Polo, The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program, Polo InterActive, Herk’s Store & Grill and Franks Friendly Firearms.
“Our event, flight, prize and team sponsors are a key component to Texas Arena League,” says Robin Sanchez – member of TAL committee. “TAL is the Oprah Winfrey of polo – so many prizes! We couldn’t make it happen without our sponsors.”
With four events currently on the calendar and a limit on the number of teams that can play within each day, TAL will create additional opportunities to accommodate the expected number of teams. For 2023, TAL is anticipating adding the Armadillo Division to Texas Arena League. This will be two more weekends of arena polo, TAL points, prizes and parties – February 4-5 and March 4-5.
“There are so many players and teams showing interest in playing 2023 Texas Arena League that we had to find a way to accommodate as many as we can. That’s why we have decided to add the Armadillo Division to Texas Arena League,” says Nacho Estrada, owner of Legends Polo Club and TAL committee member. “The league is so much fun and everyone enjoys the camaraderie. Plus, it is competitive at every level. That is what makes Texas Arena League attractive.”
