Polo is not just a sport, it is a way of life!

Polo is evocative, fun, social, and is considered to be one of the oldest team sports and was first played around 200 BC in Persia. However, it is inherently a rough sport that involves lots of physical contact and quick maneuvering.
The horses traditionally called ponies, are well trained equine athletes. Able to stop and turn on a dime, they are considered faster than racehorses over short distances. Polo ponies are the most essential part of the game.

“A polo handicap is your passport to the world.” – Sir Winston Churchill

In polo, a handicap is required and considered a good thing. Players are rated from minus two to ten. Ten is the best. Each team’s handicap is the sum of the players’ handicaps. In an Open tournament, teams play “on the flat” meaning that no scoring advantage is given to the weaker team. In a handicap tournament, points are given to the weaker team based on the difference of handicaps between two teams. For example, if a sixteen goal (handicap) team plays against a seventeen goal (handicap) team, then one point is awarded on the scoreboard for the sixteen goal team at the start of the match.
