ABOUT HAWAII INTERNATIONAL POLO ASSOCIATION
The Hawaii International Polo Association (HIPA) was founded in 2013 and has three tenets:
- Celebrate the sport of polo in Hawaii since 1880
- Develop an equine retirement facility for polo ponies
- Support at risk youth via horsemanship programs.
The most reputable polo players in Hawaii serve as advisors and ambassadors, each with more than 20 years of polo experience and contributions to Hawaii. Our association not only celebrates the rich history of polo in Hawaii but also assures that the next century is even more spectacular. Our challenge now is to ensure polo's place in Hawaii for generations to come. With this goal, Hawaii Polo Productions was created to identify unique venues, produce world-class polo events and showcase individual and collective talents. We believe that Hawaii is an ideal place to showcase world-class polo. In doing so, we celebrate our rich history of polo in the Hawaiian Islands, dating back to 1880 during the reign of our King David Kalākaua, while promoting polo for future generations.
