Polo Coach Subedar Mehboob Alam Khan

With free style polo, the name of Subedar Mehboob Alam Khan is inseparably linked. Through the charm and fascination of his personality coupled with his professional skill in the field, he has served as polo coach in all the grand polo events within Chitral and outside it for the last 30 years.

He is also known for his wits with practical values derived from his life time experiences.
