From ancient polo to e-polo
Polo – the sport of kings – is arguably the oldest team sport in the world.
Nomads in Central Asia played in pre-historic times. It was part sport, part cavalry training, and celebrated the relationship between warrior and horse.
The game migrated to Persia (today’s Iran), Constantinople, the far east, and India over 2000 years ago. Chinese courtiers played polo in 706 BCE during the Tang Dynasty, as did Persian courtiers in 1546 CE.
The modern game of polo was "reinvented" in Manipur, India. It then spread to England, Argentina, North America, and the world. From 1900 to 1936 it was an Olympic sport.
In 2006 Segway Polo came about as a first step to playing polo on electric personal transporters.
e-polo was officially launched in 2019 and is played on electric personal transportaters (EPT:s). The game can be played 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3 and 5 vs 5, field style or arena style, and on different surfaces.
