We play Sunday from 11AM to 3 PM and Wednesday night from 5.30PM to 21PM
My name is Steve and I'm addicted to bike polo.
I just moved to Montreal and I'm hoping for lots of polo action.
I went and played by myself at the Wednesday night courts (Pointe Saint Charles) last night and had a blast.
The court is amazing and the lighting is great...it was a little short of company though.
I will be there every Wednesday at 7pm whether or not anyone else comes out...but please come out.
I propose we play EVERY Wednesday starting at 7pm....and go until we are too drunk.
I also propose we play every Friday at the same court starting at 7pm as well.
What does everyone think of that?
We should also try and get some more people out to try bike polo.
I'm working on a handful of folks right now.
I'm also thinking of making a little poster to put up in bike shops to try and catch a few more players as well.
I work doubles on Sunday's, but one day wouldn't be enough anyway.
Does anyone want to play this Friday May 14 at PSC courts at 7pm???
Thanks very much,
Hope to meet all you Montreal Polo'ers soon
Sorry for the short company but this Wednesday were were playing downtown for the TV shoot... and some work about social relations... Next week we will play at PSC.
What about the PSC's court:
You are right the court is amazing and the light is great. But there are some issues with this court...
- Usually it's not available before 8:pm or 8:30PM because some guys reserved it to play hockey and so they have the priority to play ( playing hockey you can reserve playing polo we can't, I'm woorking with the city hall about that but it's hard... ), this week the court was empty at 7pm just because of the hockey game on the TV !
- This court is far for almost every body so going there it's quite long on a polo bike and it's hard to have enough people just for one day so I cannot really imagine playing there two days... I don't want to ride my small ratio for one hour and be there alone...
Currently as usual we will play there only Wednesday at 8pm or later. You can try to go there at 7pm but seriously you will just pass 1 hour looking guys playing hockey...
Also about "EVERY" Wednesday is what we do but we can't play there if it's raining... to "sliding"...
In order to get more people playing we are working on stuff like flyer ( we'll have the next week ), logo, t-shirts and we will pass 5 minutes on the most watched morning TV show the 21 of May...
We'll talk about all of that...
Hope to see you
Hi Steve and Guillaume, and Montreal polo. I'm half moved to Montreal, wife and one child there, me and the other (bigger, much bigger) child here in Manchester UK. Absolutely loving playing polo with the Manchester crew and while sad to leave them I'm hoping to meet you folks there. Two weeks from today and me and my bike will be there. Hope to see you soon. Paul
hey Paul, some of my best polo matches (and hardest falls) were against Manchester's Netto when I played for Oxford! Look forward to meeting you in Montreal
Had some fine falls and losses (always losses...) against Netto. Shame they couldn't go to the recent Cambridge tourney, I woulda gone but I moved here the day before! Will try to get to PSC this coming Friday, unless something happens Wednesday...
Hey Montreal, start getting your teams together and plan a trip down to VT!
Wednesday night Polo in PSC....come one, come all!!!!
FRIDAY evenings are a new POLO night.
There...I said it.
Friday evenings at 7pm at Parc Leber in PSC is a new time to meet to play polo. We'll meet there at 7pm to 7:30pm and if the hockey box is occupied then we will go to the alternative location under the highway 10, in the casino parking lot.
I will show up every Friday and just hope that enough people come out to play. Trust that at least I will be there every week.
I will be there tomorrow, Friday May 28 at 7pm and I hope to see you all there.
Lets try and get more POLO happening in Montreal and get more dates during the week to appeal to different people with different schedules. Or just more polo in general and less typing about it on the interweb...cuz that's starting to get lame.
Hope to see y'all soon
ps. I'll bring a ball and we'll make goals outta back packs or something. I also have extra mallets for first timers.
LET'S PLAY POLO ON FRIDAYS!!!!
I'LL BE THERE THIS FRIDAY!!!!!
There's no POLO on FRIDAYS.
I tried, but no one has come at all...so its off.
Let's go strong on Sundays and Wednesday though!!
Just wanted to say high to the Montreal Bagels from the Last Stand! Look forward to seeing y'all again on the court sometime.

Any of you guys coming to Ottawa for the North Side Polo Invitational?
Tuna is the chicken of the sea
Toronto, first weekend in November! http://leagueofbikepolo.com/fall-ballin-2010
I am a bike polo enthusiast from Mannheim, Germany and over in Montreal for 2 weeks. are you celebrating the spring and playing outside already? If you played some time during this week or beginning of next week and some one would bring an extra mallet that would be awesome....looking forward and might be even able to attract some locals to enlarge your crowd.
hope to polo you guys soon!
we play every Sunday in an old warehouse on the old port here. Check our facebook page, that will tell you all the information, google maps, time and any changes. I always carry spare mallets so there is one for you!
I am up north over the next days but I hope I will make it back on time...damn I should!!!
Come and play!!!
