Video length: 3 minutes 38 seconds
Polocrosse Exhibition match at the Las Colinas Polo and International Sports Club in Irving, TX.
Polocrosse is played on horseback and is a combination of polo, lacrosse and netball. A team consists of six players, divided into two sections of three who play alternate chukkas of eight minutes each, usually 4 chukkas comprise a full match. Each rider uses a cane stick made up of a polo stick shaft with a squash racquet type head with a loose twisted-thread net. The ball is carried in the stick’s net. The ball is made of thick- skinned sponge rubber and is approximately four inches across. Unlike polo, players are allowed only to play one horse, except in the case of injury. Players can pick up the ball from the ground, catch it in their racquet, and ride with it, and toss it to other players.
Polocrosse looks like a blast. I like that in Australia it is a family sport and played by young and old.
Watching some polocrosse on Youtube convinced me that Australian saddles were very good for helping hold you in the saddle, which is one of the reasons that I bought one.
