Overview

The club runs the oldest and first ever Polo Trophy in the world, the Ezra Cup (1880), besides other old ones such as the Carmichael Cup (1910) and the Stewarts Cup (1932). The Ezra Cup is named after Sir David Ezra, a leading a Jewish business tycoon in Calcutta, who sponsored the sport within the city. These cups are still in vogue.
Polo in Calcutta enjoyed the patronage of royalty like the Maharaja of Burdwan, Maharaja of Cooch Behar, Nizam of Hyderabad, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales and Sultan of Brunei. They had rubbed shoulders with Indian polo stalwarts like Maharaja Sawai Man Singh of Jaipur, Col Maharaj Prem Singh, Rao Raja Hanut Singh among others on the Pat Williamson polo grounds.

Polo in Calcutta was the ultimate in entertainment and synonymous with winter. It was the time for commoners to join the Christmas revelry with royalty and top-ranking army men. Legend has it that the charming Maharani Gayatri Devi fell in love with Maharaja Sawai Man Singh of Jaipur here in the city of joy.
Modern day polo is played according to the rule book formed originally in Calcutta Polo Club. Later in 1892, Calcutta Polo Club played a pivotal role in the formation of the Indian Polo Association. The first IPA championship was deservedly hosted by Calcutta Polo Club in 1907 and continued to be hosted till 1997.
Until a few years ago, the club was almost about to lose the title of being "The Oldest Polo Club in the World" when it had almost gone into hibernation in 1998.
