TULSA, Okla. –
Athletes from Green Country are gearing up to play polo for a purpose.

Grand Central Stables Polo and Country Club is on the border of Haskell and Coweta. Polo is the oldest team sport in history.
She said since the polo team will play no matter what, players wanted to support a greater cause.
“We want to raise funds for something that’s important. We want to bring the community together. Polo to us is a family, so if we can bring the community together and become a family and support each other.”
In two weeks, the stables and country club will host the Grand Central Back the Blue Polo Cup.
There will be live music, food trucks, and a helicopter flying over at half-time.
In the first game, OSU players will take on a team called the Dropouts.
The second game will feature professional players from several states.
Money raised from the tournament will benefit the Coweta Police Department.
“I think that we can come together, have a party, have fun. I mean when we have food and horses together, what more does anybody want,” Brush said.
