The word ‘Polo’, is derived from the Tibetan word ‘Pulu’ – meaning ball. It was by this name that the Tibetans played their version of this ancient sport, described by some as being the origins of the game itself. While Polo may have grown to maturity in the Americas, it was in India that the modern game was discovered and nurtured. History records that the ancient Persians knew the sport as Chaughan and played it as far back as 2500 years ago. The Chinese too lay claim to a Polo tradition dating back several thousand years.
