Game of the Week

7/26: Polo: USPA Nespresso America Cup Championship: One of the original extreme sports has been going on at the S.B. Polo & Racquet Club for more than a century. Two players skilled at striking the ball while their ponies approach 40 mph were raised in Carpinteria: Jeff Hall of the Lucchese team and Santi Torres of Alegria-Valiente. Hall, 35, was named MVP after Lucchese won the Belmond El Encanto Classic last week. Hall has a seven-goal rating, as does Torres, who’s only 21. A pair of Argentines are rated at eight goals: Paco de Narvaez of Wildcat and Lucas Criado of Farmers & Merchants Bank. Klentner Ranch, led by seven-goaler Mike Azzaro, is also among the five teams competing for trophies in the summer season that lasts until September 6. Consolation: 11am. Final: 2pm. Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, 3300 Via Real, Carpinteria. $10. Call (805) 684-6683 or visit
