ntages.html a link will take you to the website of the Left-handed Information Centre. There, in the table offered on the opening page, you will see that both hockey and polo are barred to left-handers. (By that, I mean they are not allowed to play left-handed.)
Since the site's sole reason for existing is to highlight the problems associated with left-handedness, I don't suppose they'd have got this wrong, do you?
I know for a certainty that polo is the (or at least 'a') correct answer to the original question. I'd imagine - though I don't really know - the objection in polo might have to do with the long mallets. These could become tangled up in the ponies' legs, if two opposite-handed players came close whilst galloping in the same direction.
According to the Leicestershire & Rutland Hockey Association; 'The ball can only be played with the flat side and edges of the stick, but there are many situations when it is necessary to turn the stick over with the end pointing downwards in the "reverse stick" position. There are no left-handed hockey sticks, but hockey players who are natural left-handers can still be very successful players'.
