The thing with the World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship is, for better or worse, that it’s kind of an exaggeration. An expensive one at that. And the truth is we put a lot of stock into Worlds being perfect and the pinnacle of bike polo development when in fact we don’t even have a really clear vision of what bike polo will be in six months, let alone a year, let alone any point in the distant future. We are, once again, creating a high level event for a sport that simply doesn’t demand that sort of thing.

Well, I’ve done it.
I’ve kept my interest/body/willpower up high enough to continue playing this sport for another year.
On this day (the 25th of September), four years ago, I played my first game of bike polo–and have been playing fairly regularly ever since. I think playing for 4 years is really quite an achievement, and it better be as I don’t have much else to show for the effort other than a bunch of grumpy joints and a new appreciation of jorts.
Looking back now, I want to condense my 4 years of polo life into a few takeaways, which I’ll try to do right meow:

So, to explain how the schedule will work. There are two groups of 6 teams. Every team will play every other team in their group, 4 games on Saturday, 1 on Sunday morning.
Group A and B will alternate. Games are 1 hour long, and rounds will start every 90 minutes. Those 30 minutes between the end of one game, and the next (minus any time wastage), are for the next team to get on court, and warm up. Don’t turn up when your game is meant to start, and expect to be able to practice. Be there 30 minutes before.

There is no way I can explain how I injured my left index finger without making it sound like I assaulted my wife, so let’s just try for it and see how it goes:
I was play-fighting my wife and I forgot, somehow, that her father was a boxer in the Navy. Long story short, I went to do a haymaker over her head and she, with reflexes like a gorram tiger lifted her elbow at the right wrong moment, causing my half-closed hand to strike her steel elbow. We heard a series of pops and crunches, and then my wife laughed and asked if I was okay.

I and my mortal enemy fellow polo blog writer, Aaron Hand, recently teamed up to figure out a way for the both of us to cover our operating costs while still giving the community we love something in return.

I am sitting by a pool in Malta as I write this, having been lured from Melbourne to Europe by the prospect of photographing (and briefly playing in) the 2014 World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships. It has been three weeks since the tournament took place in Montpellier, but please forgive my tardiness in sharing my pictures from the event with you – I had to sort through more than 3,300 them! Congratulations to ‘Call Me Daddy’ for taking home the trophy (Polo was literally one of the winners on the day), and to the ‘Beavers’ for coming in second.

VANDALrgz was first spotted, (in my case), at Worlds in 2013–and from that time to now the clothing company has sprouted up everywhere you look when it comes to bike polo tournaments and culture. I managed to pin down Malakai Edison and Spencer Sward for this interview regarding what VANDALrgz is, what it does, and what they hope it will be in the future.

Photos from the East Van Crown: Portland sent 3 full teams, 2 pairs, and one solo slayer to Canada last weekend to vie for the coveted crown. Seattle took it in the end, but I think everyone will agree that our teams had the largest possible  amount of fun on and off the court.

I heard about Gijon long time ago, and honestly, after Puerto Rico, it was pretty impossible to miss that Crit ! So, I left with Sven, Charlotte et Tim by car. After 12 hours of driving, crossing France and a part of the Spanish north coast Spain, we arrived in Gijon. As I imagined, Gijon is a typical Spainish city of this side of the country.

Knocking teeth out of a big monster. Consider it cross training.

Unfortunately Seattle can’t make it to bench, and we’ve asked a few of the teams who are next in line, but no-one can make it as a whole club. As such Nic Maglio has volunteered to captain a Best-Of-The-Rest team, formed of players willing to travel to Lexington. Please get in contact with Nic (nic@nahardcourt.com) if you want to play, and are able to make it to Lexington in 2 weeks time.
