Head Polo
"We can only accept huntsmen whose heads have parted company with their bodies. You will appreciate that it would be impossible otherwise for members to participate in hunt activities such as Horseback Head-Juggling and Head Polo. It is with the greatest regret, therefore, that I must inform you that you do not fulfil our requirements."
Sir Patrick Delaney-Podmore to Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington[src]

Head Polo is a game played by the Headless Hunt.[1] It presumably consists of a team sport played on horseback in which the objective is to score goals against an opposing team by driving their heads into the opposing team's goal using a long-handled mallet.
