By: IPY Agency
Heading into the 2022 season, TAL is excited to announce the United States Polo Association (USPA) General Patton Tournament sponsored by Patton Legacy Sports, the USPA General Puller, and Admiral Nimitz tournaments to the 2022 calendar of events.
Patton Legacy Sports honors General George S. Patton, Jr.'s lifelong athleticism, self-discipline, and historical leadership using charitable and educational means to support athletes, competitions, and organizations who peacefully interact across borders and political platforms.
"Texas Arena League has supported military tournaments since its inception. As participation in Texas Arena League has grown, so has the number of players with military ties, which shows the historical connection between polo and the military. Approximately 70% of players have a military connection through personal service or family members this season. The addition of Patton Legacy Sports as a sponsor is taking TAL to a new level."
– Karl Hilberg, U.S. Navy Commander, retired, and TAL committee member.
Dates and Locations for the upcoming 2022 TAL season are as follows:
Jan 28-30 Brookshire Polo Club, Brookshire, TX (Houston area) 15 teams start the tournament for General Patton, 12 teams start the General Puller.
