Open Bike Polo Tournament 2011

22 Jul

I just found out yesterday at the bikespace that bike polo in London is most likely the biggest in Europe. Damn, that’s impressive.

The London Hardcourt Bike Polo Association next week is putting on what should be fast and furious (to quote those crap films about cars): the London Open Bike Polo Tournament!! Here’s the flyer via http://www.lhbpa.org:

The tournament will be held in Hackney Downs Park from Saturday the 30th to Sunday the 31st.

Word on the street is it will be old format 3vs3 style tournament, £30 per team, 3 courts, unlimited teams can enter, Swiss rounds then finishing with double elimination brackets. Plus the vegan crew at nearby Pogo Cafe will be serving burgers, snacks, cakes, and drinks. Om nom nom.

Highlights from last year’s Open:
