Organisation body: The BENELIGUE

The Beneligue is a Hardcourt bike polo championship that will decide who in BElgium, NEtherlands, or LIlle, in France (cause they're almost belgians) is the best team.

Teams from Amsterdam, Antwerp, Brussels, Dunkerque, Eindhoven, Haarlem, Lille, Tournai/Doornijk, Utrecht,... or anyone else who wants to compete with us, even not from Benelux, because it's an open league, are fighting for the crown and BENELIGUE-points (and Benelux teams for Euros-slots).

Everybody's welcome, but you have to take part to at least 4 events to run for the final victory.

"Bien sûr"! ;-)
it's like it is said above: "open league and tournaments", "in the limits of allocated slots", "priority for registrated Beneligue-teams", but everybody's welcome, no matter where they come from, give us just a proper call and registration!
Cheers!

Has anyone stepped up to host #3 in December? if the dates are set early enough we might come with a few guys from Hamburg/Germany.
Great you're doing a league in Winter.

Hey, Jo Pompon!? Stop smooth-talking Agata, you're already registered with a team from Lille! ;-)

But of course, it would be possible, there are no borders, and much room for possibilities, take a look at the rules of the beneligue..
