Ninh explains the rules of polo the
00:02
object of the game is to score more
00:04
goals than the other team polo is a
00:07
sport that’s played on horses known as
00:09
polo ponies and is played on a field
00:11
that measures a maximum of 300 yards by
00:14
a hundred and sixty yards teams consist
00:16
of four players on horses known as
00:18
mounts and they are armed with wooden
00:20
mallets all players must use their right
00:23
hand only when swinging the mallets the
00:26
idea of the game is to use your mouths
00:28
to hit the ball into the goal the goal
00:32
is eight yards wide and the height is
00:34
unlimited
00:35
the idea is to ride and hit the ball
00:38
whilst on horseback towards the goal and
00:40
to shoot the ball into the goal before
00:43
the opposing team can’t defend it you
00:46
can pass the ball to a teammate if
00:47
required once the team scores a goal the
00:51
teams change ends and try and score into
00:54
the other goal
00:55
polo seems simple enough but there’s an
00:57
important sweep that you must understand
01:00
line of the board the plane who hits the
01:03
ball generally has the right-of-way and
01:06
other players cannot cross the line of
01:08
the ball infants of a player
01:10
therefore players must approach the
01:12
opposing player on either side of the
01:14
line
01:15
all from behind failure to do this
01:18
results in a foul the defending player
01:22
can take the ball away from you in a few
01:24
ways a ride off where you are allowed to
01:27
ride alongside the ball carrier and
01:29
easier Poland’s away from the line all a
01:31
player can hit the ball before the ball
01:34
carrier thus giving himself the
01:35
right-of-way and by cooking where a
01:38
defensive player blocks the swing of the
01:40
mouths with his own the game is played
01:43
in periods known as sugars which are
01:46
seven minutes long at the end of a
01:48
choker play continues for thirty seconds
01:51
or until a stoppage of play occurs
01:53
whichever happens first depending on the
01:56
competition a game can be played
01:58
anywhere between four and eight chukkers
02:00
high score
02:02
at the end of time wins that’s basically
02:05
the gist of it but there’s a few of the
02:07
things that you need to know before
02:08
playing for watching polo
02:09
for example the players as mentioned
02:13
previously the game is played with four
02:16
players per team and each player has
02:18
their own unique role the number one is
02:21
the primary offensive weapon they try
02:24
and score goals and they cover the
02:26
opposing number for the number two also
02:29
runs through and scores and is usually
02:31
situated behind the number one
02:33
the number three is the tactical leader
02:35
of the team and their job is to hit long
02:37
balls towards the number one and number
02:39
two the number four is the last line of
02:42
defense and is responsible for covering
02:44
the opposing level one penalty hit if
02:48
the other team commits an infraction and
02:50
penalty hits may be awarded to the other
02:52
team it’s taken from the 30 the 40 for
02:56
60 yard line and can be defended or
02:59
undefended depending on the type of
03:01
penalty being issued penalty goal if a
03:05
serious foul occurs the umpire may award
03:07
a penalty goal to the opposing team the
03:09
game is restarted at the spots of the
