The origin of Bike Polo dated from the end of the 19th century. This discipline was played in grass and targeted a younger and less fortunate public than the traditional polo one. This sport was officially named “bike polo” during its adaptation in bitumen and particularly increased during the 2000’s.
Origins & Rules
During the Tang Dynasty in Persia, queens and their maids played polo very well; for example, the Princess Shirin, Emperor Mauricio’s daughter, was well-known for her talents on this sport. From there, the female polo crossed the borders of the country, to reach India or China.
Beach Polo is a team sport and close variant of arena polo. A game of beach polo consists of two three-player teams as opposed to the usual four-player teams in field polo.
