Polo in Hawaii dates back to the early 20th century, when Hawaiian royalty and members of the wealthy class introduced the sport to the islands. However, the sport didn't gain widespread popularity until the 1970s, when a group of American and Argentine players started a polo club on the island of Maui.
Hawaii has a rich history and cultural heritage, and the introduction of polo to the island not only provides opportunities for the local community to participate in the sport but also attract tourists who are interested in experiencing the beauty and culture of the islands.
It's great to see the growth of the polo community in Hawaii and the efforts being made to promote the sport on the island. The Hawaii Polo Life partnership with La Dolfina and the Cambiaso family is a positive step in the right direction, and the establishment of a breeding organization in Argentina is a smart move that will contribute to the development of polo in Hawaii.
