For many people, polo is a sport played by people whose cars you’d like to key. But polo means “ball” in Tibetan, and we know how wise they are. So suspend the hate, and have a look at a game so fun you want to plotz. With a first tournament recorded in 600BC (the Turkomans won), polo has been the preserve of those with time, money and horses. You need a lot of horses to play this game. If you have no horse, then even the minimum of two seems extreme.
