Santa Barbara Showdown Series Tournaments

Are Stay & Play Events

Exemptions Listed Below

Please read this Stay & Play policy before going to our hotel listing. To play in a Santa Barbara Showdown Series event teams must use rooms in an event room block at one of our hotels. This is due to the work we do to secure room blocks for athletes, coaches, families and fans. Hotels don't want to set aside rooms that won't get used. If we don't reserve room blocks then it becomes difficult for teams to stay in Santa Barbara and surrounding areas.


In addition, to be transparent with you, the help we receive from hotels lets us keep our tournament entry fee as low as possible, particularly compared to other polo  field surface events. These are expensive events to run. It's either Stay & Play or raise the entry fee.
