While the first polo club in the world was created in India in 1859, it was in 1892 that ‘Polo de Paris’ was born. It has since become one of the most mythical courts on the planet.
The oldest team sport in the world (-600 BC), which has been played for a long time in a war like and disjointed way, began to gain structure and more peaceful manners at the beginning of the 19th century thanks to the English (among others), who were stationed in India and were truly passionate about polo.
