His Grace the Duke of Argyll and Peter Brant will lead celebrations at the opening polo match of the Fall Season at Greenwich Polo Club on Sunday September 2, 2012, with the inaugural 20 goal USPA Royal Salute Jubilee Cup. A piper will add a Scottish flavor to Labor Day weekend festivities, when VIPs will be asked to salute the sportsmanship of the players and their horses at the prize giving ceremony.

Royal Salute supports some of the most luxurious polo matches in the world, staged in the grandest venues and The Royal Salute Jubilee Cup enclosure in the beautiful, award-winning grandstand at Greenwich Polo Club is no exception. Local, national and international VIP guests will be treated to award winning L’Escale restaurant’s afternoon tea and a specially curated whisky salute, and prior to the match, will enjoy a private tour of the Karen Kilimnik exhibition at The Brant Foundation Art Study Center. Asprey, British jewellers and silversmiths since 1781, has created a special handmade sterling silver and gilt whisky tumbler for the winning team captain to mark the occasion.
