Polo is a game where players are on horseback using a mallet with long, flexible handles to drive the ball down a grass field.
Polo is played outdoors on a field with two goalposts at each end. Teams can score points by hitting the ball between the goalposts. Each team has four players and every game has umpires and referees on the sidelines. Teams pass the ball to each other with speed and maneuvering. The teams are trying to score a point while the other team tries to stop them.
