The Amateurs Riders’ Club, Mumbai hosted the first International Women’s Polo Cup in Mumbai between Team India (Sternhagen) and Team USA (Caraysil). The match was held at Mumbai’s Mahalaxmi Race Course on January 26. The encounter concluded in a tie with a total score of 8-8. The match was held for the Los Polistas International Women’s Polo Cup.

It's never too late to make a beginning. As to why we have not done it so far, I think women's Polo has started picking up now in India and we decided that we should show the people in Mumbai that women can play Polo and women should play Polo," Shyam Mehta, President of the Amateur Riders Club told NDTV.

The game of modern Polo was invented in India’s Manipur but the first ever women’s Polo game in Mumbai was played on Friday. The match can be considered a benchmark in the history of the game, opening a new aspect for the progression of the game.
