Polo is the oldest of team sports, played by nomadic warriors over 2000 years ago. Modern polo is played in more than 60 counties and enjoyed by more than 50 million people each year. The object of the game is to move the ball down the field, hitting through the goal posts for a score. Two teams of four players each compete on a field approximately 300 yards long by 160 yards wide (the largest field of ANY organized sport). A polo match lasts about 2 hours and is divided into "chukkers." Each chukker is 7.5 minutes.
Divot Stomp- At halftime, all are welcome on the field to stomp divots. During Polo play small divots of dirt and grass are torn and make for an unsafe playing. Spectators enjoy the experience of helping keep our ponies and players safe!
Tailgating- Tailgating is one of Polo's oldest traditions and one of the best ways to watch the game. Sit on the side of the field, bring a picnic and get ready for the excitement.
Dressing Up- What to wear depends on where you will be enjoying the match from. If you plan on tailgating dress appropriately for the weather and comfort. If you will be enjoying some of our lovely sponsored tents, guests tend to dress up a bit more. Anything goes!
