Can't wait!

Is this a firm date with absolutely no chance of changing coz I'm coming with my team . "Pigeons With Floodlights" (as long as Captain Morgan is on it) .
If it is a firm date then take note Poloverse . This is how you dont get ants. Plan ahead.

"So this is how it ends"MACHINE

The date is definite.


The only reason anyone does anything.
For the lulz.

Do it! Just a short flight away from Sydney.. might as well make it an Australasian tour

I can't seem to register/pay from the UK, but I'm moving to Melbourne in November and am hoping to come along/play.

Hi there, it’s Mat from Cosmic London. I’ll be in NZ for 6 weeks and looking for a team to play in the champs. Hit me up if you’re interested to form a team or need a sub.

Also, I’m going to be in Australia Dec - Feb. Flying into Melb out of Brisbane. Hope to play polo along the way.


Amazeballs. We'll certainly put on a good spread for you mate. Looking forward to catching up. Will you be here in time for Melbourne's "Bad Santa" tournie? 8-9th Dec.

Machine! Dream team.
Mat, canny wait to see you and T this side of the world.


Awesome - thanks. We can’t wait either. Get to Melb. on 15th of Dec. So will have just missed that tournament - shame! Staying in Melb for 3 weeks.

Erin, def looking forward to catching up. What are your plans on moving to Melb? Jono said you may be staying in Bris. for awhile now. We’ll be in Bris at the end of our Oz trip before hitting NZ. In Sydney prob early Feb.

Where else in Oz have good polo scenes?

Yup, I've got a job at a university for a bit, then it's my graduation here, then xmas anyway, so it made sense to stay in Brisbane til after xmas. Looking to come down to Melbourne early Jan. So we'll definitely see you down there.

I think Perth would be pretty cool, but it's a long way from the east coast..


There's regular polo in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Goldcoast (kind of) and Canberra is just starting out with the help of Tom from Adelaide. NZ has a huge amount of clubs with a great vibe and scene so definitely check out at least Christchurch, Auckland, Wellington if you get the chance.

Sydney has been throwing around an idea for a tournament in Feb so that'd be great timing. No date set but likely early Feb.

and as a tip, if you want to get in touch, all the clubs in Aus and NZ each use a Facebook page for chatter and session times instead of LoBP (or I can email you particular contacts if needed). There's also a trans-national page too that might be helpful.

Hi everyone. I'm Stev. I'm looking for a team for the Australian Champ. I'm moving to Melbourne next week. If there is any teams looking for a third, hit me up!


Hey Stev

if you are on facebook, request membership of the Australasian Hardcourt Bike Polo group http://www.facebook.com/groups/403629449651342/

A lot of Australasian players don't look at LoBP

Also looking for a team, so just contact me at tim_schlenker@web.de. Gonna post something at facebook soon too.
I've got no bike with me, so if anybody can tell how is the best way to get one or even (would be extremely awesome) provide me with one, please tell me.


Hi Tim, good to hear you're coming! Don't forget to register by the end of this month.

As for a bike, most players are flying to this so if you need a bike for the whole weekend it might be best to contact Christchurch bike polo or Timaur bike polo clubs. They both have active Facebook pages.

Thanks for the advice, also i'm already registered.

By the way my flight goes from Melbourne and i'm near Brisbane working at the moment, so i'm pretty sure i'll show up some time in Sydney.

Good to hear! If you use FB, send a message to the Sydney Bike Polo page if you know when. We play Thursday nights 6-10pm and Sunday afternoons 2:30-7pm. At the moment we are also playing Wednesday night from 7pm.
