Given polo’s legacy of over 2500 years, it is renowned to have been a game of kings. It is a game that spread from Persia to present-day Iran in the 6th century AD and all the way up to Arabia, Tibet, China and then later Japan. The Mughals were known to have introduced this sport in the Indian Subcontinent in the 13th century.
Polo is an eminent game in Pakistan that receives extensive coverage and draws participation from distinguished local and foreign dignitaries.
