To get the most out of polo, it helps to understand the
basics of the game . The polo field is 300 yards long by
160 yards wide (the area of nine football fields) . Two
teams, each with four players, compete . The game is
divided into six 7-minute, 30-second play periods called
"chukkers ." The objective is to drive the ball downfield
and between the opponent's goalposts . The team that
scores the most goals wins .
