Polo Scroll

馬球 is the Chinese title for the ancient game of polo.

During the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), the elite and rich would mount their horses and engage in this rigorous sport. It was the only sport of that period that women were also known to play.

The original polo came from Persia and may have been played in China hundreds of years before the Tang popularized it.

The characters “馬球” literally mean “horse ball.”
