5 Reasons Gladiator Polo™ is the Best Date Night Ever

Jun 14, 2017 - 9:35 AM

Whether you’re meeting someone new or celebrating your 30th wedding anniversary, Gladiator Polo™ is the perfect place to bring your special someone and enjoy a night together on June 24th at Tryon International Equestrian Center!



Polo action… The match will be fast-paced and get your adrenaline pumping. The six players and their ponies are galloping back and forth across the arena non-stop in order to score as many goals as possible. Hooves are flying, balls are hitting the side boards, and the announcer’s voice is calling the action. The riders want everyone to cheer and BE LOUD! In fact, the action is so intense she may even want to hold your hand…

Action All Night Long!




Ever worry that your date won’t like the restaurant you pick?

Well, at Gladiator Polo™ you won’t even have to think about that because there are plenty of options. The five on-site restaurants have everything from Sushi to Chicken Parm, Burritos to Burgers –not to mention the cotton candy, popcorn, and ice cream stands. But, if you really want to impress her… buy tickets to the Argentine Asado and treat yourselves to some authentic Argentine BBQ – skirt steak, sweetbreads, steamed vegetables, and more! And the view from your table is sure to impress! #VIPStatus Tickets for the BBQ can be purchased by clicking HERE. (Pro-tip: Buy now. They do sell out.) Tickets are $29.95/person.

Don’t need a full dinner? That works too. Just grab your tickets for the Beer Festival and indulge in your favorite brews while watching the action in the ring! Enjoy unlimited 4-ounce pours and all-you-can-eat tapas! For real. The Beer Festival will be located on the Sky Deck with an incredible view of the action down below. Click HERE to purchase Beer Festival tickets. Tickets are $49.95/person.




Netflix and chill? Not tonight. Get those dancing shoes ready because, once the match is over, the party continues!

Everyone is invited to the After Party which will feature multiple bars, a DJ, and a stylish outdoor lounge space. No date night is complete without getting on the dance floor for a song or two. Even though the main event might be over, you don’t have to go home!

Even the DJ gets in the Gladiator mood!




Ok, you’re probably thinking this date night is sounding too expensive right? I mean food, drinks, entertainment, dancing…

Nope, general admission is absolutely FREE! And so is parking and entry into the After Party! So cancel your other plans and tell her that you’re heading out to Tryon International Equestrian Center to see Gladiator Polo™. P.S., this means you can splurge and buy her that Gladiator t-shirt so she can remember the night forever.



Lastly, plan ahead and make overnight reservations for you and your special someone. There are several on-site lodging options to choose from and staying in a cozy cabin is the perfect way to end your fun night out. She’ll be impressed that you planned ahead and how convenient is it to not have to worry about driving home?! Special lodging deals are available for Gladiator Polo™ weekend that include tickets to the asado as well as your overnight stay – all wrapped into one convenient package. Contact lodging@tryon.com for all of the details.
