Number of teams depends on availability of more courts. The idea is to play the shit out of our home court, so a smaller tourney would be best. But we have a few ases under our sleeves....

Bikepolo Karlsruhe would bring 1 team...

noted. The clowns?

*Somebody please think of the children!!*

Not sure yet. It also could be a mixed Karlsruhe team. We think about that after the Greif Masters...

Cheers!

Yeah!! hom many equipos at this moment?

About a dozen.... and counting.
Level is going up, so you better come in prepared!

*Somebody please think of the children!!*

will be an honor and a pleasure to compete against some of the best euroteams , as it is rumored that there will be...

One team for Toulouse please. I didn't apreciate at all the 5 to nil by the indypolo in Toulouse last w.e!!REVANCHE!! Get ready guys

May be a team from Catania... I hope!

A few things are getting sorted out. By monday/tuesday next week, I'll be able to confirm spots for teams on the waiting list.

*Somebody please think of the children!!*

Airplane tickets booked!
Count Brussels IN!

only 5 people from munich are coming to barcelona, which means 1 complete team and one needs a third player

So who's not coming? There are 4 teams registered.

*Somebody please think of the children!!*

we've found a 6th player from stuttgart and so officially 2 teams from munich are coming to barcelona. the names for both are not known at the moment, but now you can offer 2 places to teams from the wait list. see you in barcelona!

this is going to be fun. Is the court slippy?

Yorgo

We have 2 different fields setup. Our homefield, La Aspirina, is slippery if it's dusty or wet. But the other one is grippy.

*Somebody please think of the children!!*

"Las marcas que se han interesado por el torneo son muchas y desde aquí les agradecemos su ayuda para con el torneo."

This is the reason the tournament cost 15/personn ???!!!

There are costs involved with organizing an event. Although we have the support of many companies that have been very generous, our funds are very limited. We have tons of prizes and goodies for the players but unfortunately, I can't pay the paramedics in wheels and mallets.
The tourney at Toulouse was 5€/person, but the t-shirt was 10€. I don't see what's the big deal about it.

*Somebody please think of the children!!*

if it is too expensive for your pocket... dont go
moan in the internet about a tourney before going is shit, and rude

Rik
Zaragoza Bike Polo 2015
Berlin Bike Polo 2010 - 2015
London Bike Polo 2008 - 2010

Lisbon will be there!

Is there a list off the teams participating in the tournament? We are trying to avoid paying the bike tax at the airliner, but we would need this list. Don't ask me why they want it...

Saludos de argentina, me la perdi por esta, la proxima estare alli, pero bueno seguro que los chicos de munich estaran alli, espero que les salga todo bien y que disfruten como siempre un par de cervezas con los amigos, hasta la proxima

Awesome! There was people playing from 10 in the morning to 4 in the night...18 jodidas horas!

Gracias Pablo! Esta siendo increible, y hoy mas todavia!!
