polocrosse
 n.— «Some of those who play the game jokingly refer to it as “poor man’s polo,” but polocrosse is much more than that. It’s a game that allows 5- to 10-year olds to compete against 65- to 75-year olds with nobody batting an eye.…The Bucks County Polocrosse Club began in 2005 and has about 50 members of all skill levels. The modern polocrosse game took shape in Australia in the 1930s and today there are over 6,000 players worldwide. Think of polocrosse as lacrosse on horseback.» —“‘Poor man’s polo’ brings together all ages in Bucks County” by Drew Markol York Daily Record (Pennsylvania) May 17, 2008.
