Antiquar Polo Club had 41 applications accepted in 2013 compared with 19 the year before and 8 in 2010. Out of the 43 clubs 10 had report more than a 100% increase and 5 were over the 170% mark.
Speculation on the increased interest points to the acceptance world wide of internet access and the improved promotion of polo by electronic mainstream media.
