Polo (3rd of 3)


The New Zealand Polo Association was formed in 1890, one year after Captain Savile (aide-de-camp to the governor) presented a trophy to be played for each year by the polo clubs in New Zealand. In 2008 there were 22 polo clubs and 300 registered players. Here, Kihikihi and Rangitīkei players compete for the ball. Kihikihi won this match in 2008.
