Professional Polo


AFM Give Me Wings Polo MatchFor the first time in nearly 20 years, high-goal, professional polo is returning to the Aiken area with the AFM Give Me Wings Polo Match. Featuring a $30,000 prize, the match begins at 3 p.m. Saturday, October 21 at La Bourgogne Club de Polo in Wagener, South Carolina.

Individual tickets will offer food for purchase from upscale food trucks, beer and wine and access to the pavilion lawn.

Pavilion tables for eight people include a buffet lunch provided by The Willcox, an open bar and access to the pavilion before and after the match.

Field side tailgate boxes will have space for six people and one car. These spectators can bring their own tailgate or order a picnic lunch.

Proceeds will benefit the AFM Give Me Wings Foundation, which was founded in memory of Anthony Francois Meunier after he passed away last year at age 22 in a single-car accident. The foundation supports families who have lost a child with in-person grief therapy services and offers clinics for young motorists to learn how to navigate out of dangerous driving situations.

The clinics will be conducted by two of the most accomplished racing drivers in the world, Indianapolis 500 winner Simon Pagenaud and former F1 driver Sébastien Bourdais.
