AFRICAN HARDCOURT BIKE POLO CHAMPIONSHIP
2nd Self-managed ZARAGOZA tournament

DATE: 29-30 September

WHERE: CAGE-COURT in TORRERAMONA PARK

PRICE: $ 0

AWARDS: MANY FRIENDS

FORMAT:
The AHBPC is going to be a tournament without fixed teams, each player is targeted individually, on Friday evening will be a draw in which there will be 3 players drums with 3 types divided according to their level or tournaments played, the players sharing in each of the drums will be made by a committee of "wise men", and that only the wise people of Zaragoza know who they are. Thus, each team will have a good player, intermediate, and beginner, generating equality among all teams (or at least I intend).

The tournament will have 20 teams (60 players), each team will play at least 8 games (5 goals or 10 minutes), will not be Swiss rounds or groups. The format will be circular, as they are formed teams, these will form a circle in the sense of clockwise so each team will play four games against teams that have left and 4 games against teams that have the right of the circle (eg team 1 will play against teams 2, 3, 4, 5, 20, 19, 18 and 17). The bracket on sunday will be single or double elimination, we wil decide it on saturday night-sunday morning.

Mucha suerte para el Torneo! saludos desde Argentina a mis amigos poleros de Zaragoza! me gusto mucho el sistema para armar los equipos...

Don't mean to be a killjoy, but the Australia and NZ region also use "AHBPC" for its championships.

the name its only a joke, don't take it seriously...

make it ANZHBPC

The A actually stands for Australasian which is (an often misinterpreted) term they refers to Australia, New Zealand and sometimes New Guinea and Indonesia. "ANZHBP" would be redundant.

SSSARAGOOSSSSAAAA YO VOYYY

BEST OPEN EVER!

MEANWHILE IN ZARAGOZA: BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERS

honest philosoraptor question: why's it called "african," but in spain?

Whoa.

Now, bike polo has a long tradition of people re-inventing the game and declaring themselves the World Organizing Organization. But this is the first time I've seen someone from one country declare the championships of another continent.

Inspired by Jamaican Bobsledding?

The philosoraptor has a tasty one.

how do you say 'i think you a word,' but, when someone too many words?

It's only a spanish joke! and it's about the economic situation of our country... Zaragoza is diferent!

gotcha. thanks for the explanation.

Once I met some people (from the states) who didn't believed that spain was part of europe..."under the pyrenees, that's africa!"

No way you found an American who knew where the pyrenees were. I've met people from the states who couldn't tell you where the Canadian Rockies were.

meanwhile in Zaragoza:

OMG!!!!! Who did this???? :'(
