POLO 101

  • Polo is an international sport and a 2500 year old sport.
  • Polo is played on a ten acre grass field. 300 yards in length by 160 yards, which is the approximate area of ten football fields.
  • There are four period or “chukkars” in a match. Each chukkar is seven minutes long. Play begins with a throw-in of the ball by the umpire at the opening of each chukkar, and after each goal. Only penalties or injuries may stop play as there are no time-outs or substitutions allowed.
  • The mallet, made of bamboo shaft with a hardwood head, is the instrument used to hit the polo ball.
