Did someone say "Polo"?

Tonight I went and watched my very first Polo match! It was super fun. I realized right when I got there that I should have read up on the sport prior to going (as did half of my party)! But it was still a blast nonetheless. The match we watched was an Arena Polo game. This differs from a typical game because it is played inside an arena with dirt instead of grass, there are only 3 players on each team, and the length of the field is around 100m. Regular Polo is played on a grass field approximately 300m in length, 4 against 4. Thank you Wikipedia!
