It all started back then in 1858 when two British soldiers Captain Robert Stewart and Major Gen Joe Sherer witnessed a game called "Sagol Kangjei" being played by locals of Manipur. Both officers were so captivated by the experience that they quickly introduced the game to their peers and then was established the "Calcutta Polo Club" in the year 1861-62. After that, the club created a standardised format of the game and set "The first rule book for Modern Polo". The name 'Polo' also was coined here for the first time by one of the gentlemen playing one fine sunny day at our majestic polo grounds. Polo then spread like wildfire throughout England and is now played in about 80 countries. Located in the centre of the race course (Defense's Land) with its rich heritage, Calcutta Polo Club continues to pride itself for its warm and friendly atmosphere while offering a world-class riding and polo facility to its members and guests. Polo teaches us all that and much more. Besides being a healthy exercise, polo instils in players the habit of playing and performing selflessly and acquiring skills of quick decision-making that are universal attributes of great leaders. We follow international standards for training our members & students who wish to learn horse riding & then advance to polo. We are the only club in Eastern India to provide professional training of polo to all enthusiasts & amateurs. We also conduct Archery classes for our patrons. Our vision is to keep the heritage of CPC alive and encourage youngsters to take up polo and make it their hobby or career. We look at supporting all polo enthusiasts by subsidising the sport and making it easily accessible and affordable.
