Polo is a sport featuring 4 players per team. The goal is to hit the polo ball through the goalposts to score, but what makes it challenging is you have to ride a horse while doing so.

Greenwich Polo Club is a sports complex in Greenwich, Connecticut. It was established in 1981 and hosts polo matches in the summer season annually. There are 3 polo venues in the United States that hold high-goal polo matches. The matches are usually held from June - September on Sundays. Each match has 8 players on horseback, 4 players per team. Polo matches are typically played outside and last about 1 1/2 hours, divided into timed periods of 7 minutes long. Each 7 minute time period is called a chukker.

The field is 300 yards long and 160 yards wide, and the polo ponies can go up to speeds of 35 MPH. Players change their horses after each chukker because they are worked extremely hard. During halftime, spectators are welcomed onto the field for a tradition called "divot stomping" to replace the divots on the grass made from the horse's hooves. Polo has been played for thousands of years. The Greenwich Polo Club is the home of the White Birch polo team, and they have been very successful, winning the most high-goal polo tournaments in the last 25 years. Every Sunday during the polo season, 2,000 spectators come to Greenwich from New York City, Fairfield, and Westchester counties. Gates open at 1 pm and the match begins at 3 pm. Food trucks and a bar provide refreshments for guests during the game. Come and watch a polo match the next time you're in Connecticut.
