The Will Rogers Polo Club in Pacific Palisades, is the only remaining polo club in Los Angeles. (It's like field hockey with 2 goals.).

Established  by Roger's in 1926, it hasn't changed much. Will's Will donated the park for the public, and the will of Will's will, the preservation efforts, are ongoing.

Today there are matches at 10am and 2pm. I was on my hike-run and watched the horses arrive by trailers.

Back in the day, Rogers and his hollywood friends Spencer Tracy, Walt Disney and Clark Gable would play polo at the field on weekends. Then head our ro The Beverly Hills Hotel for drinks,The Polo Lounge became a popular watering hole and got its namesake from the movie stars.
