Overview
More
We are the oldest polo club located in Kolkata, West Bengal, India. It all started back in 1858 when two British soldiers, Captain Robert Stewart and Major Gen Joe Sherer, witnessed a game called "Sagol Kangjei" being played by locals of Manipur. Both officers were so captivated by the experience that they quickly introduced the game to their peers, and then was established the "Calcutta Polo Club" in the year 1861-62. Thereafter the club created an organized format of the game and set "The first rule book for Modern Polo." The name 'Polo' also was coined here for the first time by one of the gentlemen playing one fine sunny day at our majestic polo grounds. Founded a century and half back, the club perhaps best embodies the "Mystique of Polo" in modern India.
