Mostly when we think about polo, one of the first things that comes to our mind is the vast green polo field. But have you ever thought about playing arena polo? Here are some reasons why you should try it next time you visit Argentina.
Arena polo could be considered a mini version of a traditional grass polo field. We are talking about the same exciting sport, but with some subtle differences. This version of polo allows you to play in smaller groups of three, which makes sense if you consider that arena fields can be much smaller.
Besides this difference in team and field size, arena polo fields are enclosed by walls. You can think of them as a kind of hybrid between indoor and outdoor polo. With all the action taking place in a smaller area, it actually feels like a fast-paced version of polo.
Arena polo was first introduced to make the sport more accessible to everyone. The surrounding walls also provide an excellent opportunity for adding lights to the field, giving you the chance to play polo event at night. Playing polo under the stars with your friends, can you imagine that?
While polo is traditionally played in grass fields, Argentina also offers arena polo fields located in magnificent landscapes of the countryside. Learn more about it and get ready for this new experience.
