Interestingly! First polo club was established in Kolkata
Right now, India may not have such a name in the world of Polo, but it all began in our city. The British established the world's first Polo club in Calcutta in 1858. Since then, there have been numerous competitions and the arrival of Europeans to further popularise the sport. This sport was particularly popular among Bengal's royals and Nawabs.
One interesting fact about India is that it was the first country to develop sugar extraction and purification processes.
