The XI FIP (Federation of International Polo) WorldPolo Championship
will be hosted by Sydney Polo Club 21 – 29th October 2017.

This is a global event that is held every three years and involves a number of qualifying international polo teams.

There will eight (8) countries playing off for the title. There are 86 national association members eligible to play off for these highly coveted spots.
There are five (5) qualifying rounds that will determine which teams will come to Australia.


The simplest goal of the pole is to score more goals than the other team. Each game does not start at 0-0 but with disabled players to make it a uniform competition. Each player has a score of 2 to 10. Players of 10 goals are the best in the world, few achieve. The overall drawback for each team is the result starting from each game. This gives the team a low-ability chance against a top-ranked team.

Non-interference in the ball line is the main rule in Polo. Once hit, the players should not cross or block the ball line unless they are far enough away from not causing the risk of other players. The player to the right of the line has the right path and owns the ball. Therefore, the riders try to push them off line with one off shoulder. Riders will be horses to push against the horse to the right, so it can become a battle of will. If this maneuver is used to expose the horse or passenger, an error will be burned.

Passengers can also engage the rider in the line when balancing the ball. They must be directly behind the swinging rider, and can not hit the horse or rider while engaging. This should be a good timing, as it is often in speed, so it is exciting to see.

Polo must also be celebrated indoor and outdoor in a specially designed launch. Must be flat, with a good surface. Outdoor throws are 10 times the size of a football field, allowing horses to reach the top gear.
