Polocrosse is a fast paced team sport played on horseback.
It combines the speed of polo, the strategy and tactics of netball (in terms of the field being divided in to 3 sections), the toughness of rugby and AFL and the ball handling ability of lacrosse.
This unique sport originated in Australia in 1939 and is dubbed as the “King of the One Horse Sports.” Polocrosse is currently played in 18 countries and boasts over 10,000 players worldwide.
Teams can comprise both male and female players. This family sport involves children from aged 7 through to men and women aged 70 – all of whom can compete on an equal basis at various levels.
