Polo Magazine

Every year, the Rotary Club of Newport sponsors the Newport Polo Club and the Newport International Polo Series by publishing the Polo Magazine in conjunction with Newport This Week.

The Polo Magazine is distributed all spring and summer long. It is distributed alongside Newport This week at all of their major locations on Aquidneck Island. It also serves as the program for all spectators attending any polo matches throughout the season. The magazine details the game, the club, and the series. It gives biographies of all of the players in the club.

As of May 7, 2020 there is much uncertainty about events in Newport due to the coronavirus crisis. Newport Polo has taken great care in creating a social-distancing format for matches this summer, to keep spectators safe. We could really use at least one form of outdoor spectator entertainment this summer, and the unique nature of Polo holds opportunities to do so. You can download their proposal to Governor Raimondo in its entirety via the links to the left.

This magazine raises funds through advertisement. Local businesses and organizations gain unparalleled exposure for their advertising dollar due to the long duration and wide distribution of the publication. The publication is distributed from May through September via the following channels:

  • Distributed alongside Newport This Week at their larger distribution locations
  • Offered as a program to all Polo match spectators for the entire season
  • Downloadable online at http://newportthisweek.com

Advertising funds pay for the publication itself. They are also the primary source of revenue funding the Newport Rotary Club's Rogers High School scholarships and other charitable gifts that we make to community minded organizations in need.
