Ruleset Modifications and Additions for 2014

Below are links to threads for each rule modification or addition that I’d initially like for people to discuss for the 2014 ruleset. The goal here is to get a public discussion going and give everyone the opportunity to contribute. After some time for discussion, I’ll make a new thread with polls on each rule issue to see where the community opinion sits. Following this, we'll begin the work of modifying and finalizing the language of the ruleset. Finally, I'll post the updated ruleset and give even MORE time for people to sift through it for things forgotten. Six months from now, we’ll have a modified ruleset for the 2014 season.

I'd like to add that I don't know at this time how NAH representation will factor into this. But we have a lot of time to work this out and I will always keep this thread updated with everything I know about how the process will unfold. It would be my preference to just work on getting the new ruleset completed and then have the representative body vote to approve it on the whole, given the participation of the constituency here on the forums. But I only like that because it sounds easy. Anyway, we'll figure this out and make sure it's passed on through this thread.

Here is the ruleset in its current form.

If there is a discussion you’d like to have about a rule that isn’t present here, email me: rules@nahardcourt.com. I will create a new thread and add it to this list.

1) High Sticking
2) The Future of the Shot
3) Unsportsmanlike Conduct
4) Restructuring the Time Out
5) Court Requirements and Game Format
6) Restarting Play After Out-of-Bounds Ball
7) Where to Start the Joust
8) Double Goalie/Addition of a Crease
9) Restarting Play After a Goal
10) Ball Jointing

Keep it focused, please. Help each other. Compromise. Change your opinions. Work it out. Keep in mind that these additions and modifications are for the NAH tournaments for 2014. <3

Solving the elusive lift shot. What works and why?


Have you ever seen a shot made with a capped end, but it got lifted to top shelf, and wondered how they did that? Well, me too!

That's what this forum topic is about. I want to hear stories, tactics, and ideas as why some shots get lift while others don't. And I mean with a capped end, or open end.

I have recently been practicing around with a capped end and have started noticing that whenever my mallet doesn't strike the ground when I shoot, it has a higher probability of getting that lift that I want. So why does not hitting the ground tend to create lift?

Warsaw Open vol.3

Friday, July 5, 2013 - Sunday, July 7, 2013
Host club: 
Warsaw bike polo
Contact info: 
Court size: 
18m x 38m

The time has come to bring you Warsaw Open vol.3 a little bit earlier then last years. Its all because of the upcoming EHBPC 2013 that will be hosted in Kraków. We thought that we could get some bike polo players to stay a couple of days longer in Poland.
Warsaw is located about 300km from Kraków and it takes about 3 hours by train to get to the capital with ease.
Hopefully you still haven't done your bookings for your flights back and could consider extending your stay giving yourself a massive BIKE POLO HOLIDAY on our beautiful polish land! :)

Day 1 — Saturday: Swiss rounds
