Polo in India

Polo in India

One of the legacies left behind by the British -much like cricket and hockey - is Polo.

Much like these two games. Polo owes its origin to the British, even though it was first played in India.

An erstwhile passion of the royal families - some, like the former ruler of Udaipur, still patronise it - the game is now largely a preserve of the men in uniform, played in metres and cantonment lawns.

Matches are usually organised in the winter season, details of which can be obtained from local dailies or race courses.
