The game of polo consists of two teams of four riders each, trying to score goals on opposite sides of a five ha field, 300 metres long. There are six periods of play comprising seven minutes each. Each period is called a chukka. Every time you score, you change sides on the field, even if it is mid-chukka. If, however, you have played three chukkas and the score is 0-0, you change sides at the start of the fourth chukka anyway.
