"The RCSI Polo Club offers a rare and exciting experience for students of all skill level. Although Polo is traditionally perceived as an impenetrable sport, polo at the Royal College of Surgeons provides its students with the chance to participate in a fun, physical activity in which every participant can expect to learn a variety of unique skills. Polo players must constantly adapt his/her game to the horse. While learning to care for and play on our four-legged teammates, polo players learn invaluable skills that - for a college student - offer the opportunity to learn a simultaneous lesson about life" - Polo 2015
