Texas SBA™ Polo Team

2018 Victorian Polo Club Cup

Location: Werribee National Equestrian Center (est. 1984), Melbourne, Australia

Texas SBA™ Polo Team finished the Victorian Polo Association season with great improvement from their performance in 2017. Led by professional polo player Corin Gibbs, Jamie Demericas and his fellow teammates got physical in competition as marketing executives from the US $13 Billion German corporation Dr. Oetker filmed their latest commercial using the "Sport of Kings" as their background.

Playing the #2 position had Mr. Demericas winning the majority of umpire bowl-ins, driving the ball downfield for his team's power forward, and running his Thoroughbred horses hard on the 10 acre polo field for 7 consecutive minutes. During the third chukker, Jamie Demericas scored one goal after having missed several quality shots but unfortunately the Texas SBA™ Polo Team could not hold-off their competitors who matched his goal and finished the match tied.

Texas SBA™ Polo Team is available for charitable fundraisers or business advertising purposes with polo being the attraction and generating sales or raising donations for your organization as the purpose.

2018 Urquhart Tournament

Location: Hexham Polo Club (est. 1884), Melbourne, Australia

For the second year in a row Jamie Demericas traveled across the Pacific Ocean to compete in the oldest Australian tournament for polo. After seeing many members of the Australian polo community in Argentina just a few months earlier, Jamie Demericas was excited to showcase his improvement and adaptability to the Aussie style of play- fast & physical.

The 21 hour flight from Houston started out with immigration problems that soon were overcome by Mr. Demericas strong reputation and gentile personality. Having learned in 2017 that nothing comes easy in Australia, Jamie Demericas missed the first day of tournament play because he got lost driving the world's smallest continent and largest island. Unfortunately, the Texas SBA™ Polo Team lost the first day, but gave a young 15 year old, 3rd generation polo player the opportunity to fill-in for the absent Jamie Demericas. On day 2, Mr. Demericas arrived at the polo grounds early and visited with many polo players and friends including Hollywood movie director Simon Wincer. Jamie performed well during the match and helped aide the Texas SBA™ Polo Team to a victory, but not the championship trophy.



2018 Hornitos Cup

Location: Siam Polo Park (est. 1990), Kingdom of Thailand

Jamie Deméricas joined the Black Dog Polo Team led by National Geographic documentary star Tom Claytor and Argentine professional Gaston Carrozo. After a two year hiatus, the Hornitos Cup was played at King Power and featured the up-and-coming Thai player Mat Deajpanyanan who scored the last goal to prevent Black Dog's victory.

The Hornitos Cup was a great experience helping Mr. Deméricas improve his polo skills as he continues to elevate his exposure in "The Sport of Kings."


2017 Farish Invitational

Location: Houston Polo Club (est. 1928), Texas, United States of America

Texas SBA™ Polo Team fought hard for 2 days against Hendrick's Gin and St. Regis Hotel impressing many Texas business owners, international guests, and equine enthusiasts. The ladies represented their state and Texas SBA™ Polo Team very well, but lost both games and were eliminated from the world's largest women's polo tournament hosted at the world's largest polo club- Houston, United States of America.

For the second consecutive year, San Saba Polo Team owned by Hollywood Actor & Director Tommy Lee Jones won the U.S. Open Women's Polo Championship™ hosted at Houston Polo Club, Texas.


2017 Werribee Polo Tournament

Location: Werribee National Equestrian Center (est. 1984), Melbourne, Australia

Nearly 9,000 miles and 21 hours of air travel was undertaken by Jamie Demericas to introduce the world's polo community to Texas Small Business Association™. Quickly, Mr. Demericas learned how aggressive and fast the Aussies run their "off the track" thoroughbreds for 7.5 minutes. It was a level of competition not familiar to Mr. Demericas and therefore he had to "dig deep" into his pool of personal talent. Three days of polo and sunburn shocked this Texas executive's body and proved hard rough-and-rugged the inhabitants of Australia must be to survive "down under".

Unfortunately, the team Mr. Demericas played for did not win the tournament although they made it to the finals.

2017 Urquhart Tournament

Location: Hexham Polo Club (est. 1884), Melbourne, Australia

Jamie Demericas had the priviledge of playing alongside up-and-coming French professional Dorian Bulteau and tenured professional Corin Gibbs of England in January 2017. During an intensive 2 weeks of Australian polo Jamie Demericas learned to play more physical, ride faster, and not expect fouls to be called. Throughout the 25 team Urquhart Tournament it seemed that every chukker had someone falling off their horse including one player getting kicked in the head by the horse's hoof. Unfortunately, the team Mr. Demericas played on did not advance to the Urquhart finals- which is one of the oldest polo tournaments in Australia, but they did advance to the finals during the Werribee tournament held one week earlier at the National Equestrian Center.

Playing in Australia was a great experience for Jamie Demericas and elevated his global polo exposure to 5 continents. Lesson learned about the Aussies and their style of play is that "they make you earn it." Surviving the outback and harsh Australian sun makes the Aussie polo player physically-minded while galloping "off the track" Thoroughbreds and will require any international polo player to elevate their style of play for this island continent.

2016 Farish Invitational

Location: Houston Polo Club (est. 1928), Texas, United States of America

Texas SBA™ Polo Team performed well in the 2016 Farish Invitational portion of the U.S. Open Women's Polo Championship™ tournament against Sullivan Group and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, but unfortunately lost to more established teams in their debut.

Jamie Demericas, owner of Texas SBA™ Polo Team, shared pleasantries from the adjacent owner's box of Hollywood Actor & Director Tommy Lee Jones as they both watched the San Saba Polo Team win the 2016 U.S. Women's Polo Open hosted at Houston Polo Club, Texas.
