US Polo ASSN
US Polo ASSN was formed. As the second oldest sports governing body in the U.S. (behind only the United States Tennis Association, USTA), the purpose of the USPA was to coordinate games, standardize rules and establish handicaps so the teams could be more evenly matched. Polo is considered among the oldest organized sports ever played and was first introduced in the United States by way of England in 1876. It didn’t take long for America to take a liking to this game and assemble their own loosely structured matches.
