Oak Brook Polo
Polo has been played for more than 80 years at the historic Oak
Brook Polo Grounds, and everyone is invited to come out and
watch the exciting "game of kings!"
Since its inception in 1922, during the "golden age" of polo, world-class teams have come every summer to play on the immaculately groomed fields of the Oak Brook Polo Grounds. Founded by Paul Butler, patriarch of the village of Oak Brook, the original Oak Brook Polo Club became the largest polo facility in the country by 1953.
The U.S. Open (Polo), the premier polo tournament in the country, was played at Oak Brook for 25 years, from 1954 to 1978, the longest it was ever played in one location. Oak Brook was considered to be one of the top summer polo clubs in America, and was well-known throughout the world. It is the Village's Polo Committee's goal to restore Oak Brook's location and Club to it's former level of prestige.
In addition to the polo matches, the Oak Brook Polo Grounds provides a unique site for fund-raisers, corporate picnics, group outings, birthday parties, weddings and other events. The polo grounds are located within the 270-acre International Sports Core, which also houses the Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Club and the Oak Brook Golf Club.
