Battle of the Bay Rules 


Polo Field Rules:  To keep the Polo Grounds in top form, the City of San Francisco does not allow spectators to be in the field. Only players, coaches and tournament staff will be allowed on the field. All spectators will watch the game from outside the fence which runs around the perimeter of the Polo Grounds. We are planning to set up the fields so they run along the fence for optimal viewing. We will do everything possible to make sure spectators have a great experience watching the games. Coaches, please abide by the following:


• All team “camps” and tent set ups must be set up on the outside of the Polo field. No camps will be allowed on the actual field. 

• Teams are not allowed to warm up on the extra space of the Polo field. 

• Players and club coaches are only allowed on the field during their game time and 10 minutes before game time. Please escort your team back off the field immediately after your game.

 

* Thank you for your help to make sure we abide by the City of San Francisco’s strict usage rules. With your cooperation, we will be able to enjoy the wonderful space in beautiful Golden Gate Park. 


• We will also have recycle, compost, and landfill bins throughout the tournament venue. Please help us to stay green and keep the venue clean. Thank you!

There will be no fighting allowed at any time. If a player punches another player during a game, he will be ejected from the game and/or the tournament.
