Phoenix, AZ
United States

Signed up

Ah, the old copper star. makes me long for my days in the Sonora.

Good luck with your tournament, folks. The price is right. Let us know how a triple elimination works and then works out, won't you?

Chicago Bike Polo 2003-2008
St Louis Bike Polo 2008-now


We're not planing on a whole lot of teams with this short of notice, so triple elim. should work out. Pumping up local interest in polo is the main point of the tourney, but everyone is welcome!

VERY interested, how many courts do you guys have for this? Are they lit at night? Also, what area code is this place? jk about that last one heh heh

Were playing on a double tennis court which one side has been converted to a roller hockey court, and we just put boards across the middle of the 2 courts to protect the ball. If we need two games at once we can turn it sideways and play parallel the net of the tennis court. And yes they are lit at night till about 11:15pm.

Thanx for the 411, we will be in touch Plair!

This kid from LA is comming out for this one!

are there any other cities interested in representing in this tournament?
say san diego, sf or maybe portland? the more the merrier.

it seems like LA needs just one more player to rep a team in this tourno.

reverend phil, where you at?

LA will be representing!
I am building my team!
Draft picks from differant parts of Cali will be stepping up with me.

if any players/teams from austin read this thread, we cordially invite you, though im sure its quite a haul by car.

Do you have any sponsors for this event?

^^^just our own wallets.

How many local teams do you guys expect?

two to four teams made up of AZHC players, phoenix grass polo will have one or two teams, and we've sent invites to flagstaff and tucson grass polo squads.

Just posted pics of our new court on the myspace! Check em' out!


The court looks nice!

bump, i sent invites to several teams across the west, hoping to hear from them soon!

It will be tough getting alot of people because of the Youngbloods tourny and the ESPI tourny. Looking forward to playing with the AZ crew.

^^ya we knew that getting into it, but still wanted to get something going... next year we have discussed putting it on in the winter so everyone can enjoy some of the great weather here in AZ.

This is my first year venturing out of California for polo. Looking forward to meeting you Arizonians.

fuck yeah, its good to see new cities throwing tournaments as well as seeing one of our old regulars continuing to play in a new city. we miss you marco!!!

This is looking more and more doable...


this tournament is only three weeks away!!!

so far it's looking like a 6-8 team tournament.

grab your duckets!

Lost both team mates for this. I am sure I could mustar somthing up.

yo joey, i played last night for the first time in a month. planning on gettin back in the swing of things (sundays) just not this one cause family stuff - ya kno!

To Marco and all of AZ: Job well done. We really enjoyed your spot, especially the boards you guys built for us. We all had a good time, and look forward to the next one u throw. I hope all the grass players had a good time, cuz if they did you'll have a deep talent pool. Also, to other warm weather cities, if u hold a tourney in heat, consider icing the balls. I've noticed they get squishy in heat, and start to handle very differently. Kudos to AZ; they swapped cold balls from the ice chest for each game, and it made a big difference. And Michael, the youngster from Grass Assault, he is going to be the Rookie of the Year for 2009.

You forgot to thank them for not catching you. You did'nt play clean. In one of our games I counted 3 times you road in the direction of the tap out cone but did'nt touch it. Instead of touching you wanted to be sure I did'nt get the ball. Must of been real desperate to win.


haha idk about rookie of the year u guys killd us.. you guys deffinetly got ur game down .. i fo sure want a rematch tho haha..

You kids killed it!
I have 2 boys that are 9 and 12.
Next I will play against you with them.
Keep having fun boys!

I stole the "ball icing" from hockey hahaha we had never done it before the day of the tourney. Worked well.

Yeah Alex next time touch the cone... U damm cheater... And Shooting them wild shots trying to win that way.. u suck Alex Dash Hater.... hahahha

"We don't need no education"
