If you ever play polo you know you need at least three basic things. Horse, stick and ball.
But, you know of what are they made of?
The polo ball is made from high density polyethylene, weight 125 grams and has a diameter of 3-3,5 inches. However, for the “Triple Corona Argentina” they used ball made from wood, its weight between 99 to 127,5 grams and a diameter of 3-3,5 inches.
Plastic balls do no whistle, unlike the wood’s ones, and rarely break when its hit by the stick, but, they can deform. The referees and “flags” replace the ball when they determinate that is too deformed to continue playing. About 24 balls are used per game.
