Bike Polo Frankfurt

Dear loved polo people.

We know, its a bit early to announce a little tournament like this, but we got the date confirmed and just cant wait to tell you...

As you understood, we are planing a shuffle tournament where only players (not teams) can register. Its mid summer, some of you are probably in the US already, the others are on non-polo holiday, so perfect for left-alones because you dont have need to coordinate with others.
This tournament is not about the great games between Superteam A and Superteam B, not about pressure and bitching around, not about prices or cool T-shirts.
Its about having a barbecue at the court, cool beer, funky music and a lot of polo at least till midnight! Short: FUN!!!

Format:

We thought of 10 rounds, 11 games every round. Games will be 12 min. (unlucky shuffle could mean to wait a little, but on the other side you definitly play 10 games, and there is barbecue+beer to brige the time)
After EACH round there is a big shuffle! Means you play with diffrent people all the time. Every player is ranked individually. (win +3/draw +1/ loss 0)
To give it an ending, after ten rounds the 12 best ranked players will be shuffled into 4 teams and play the "semi-finals". The six who come through will (of corse) be shuffled again for the final! hihi

Court (pictures will follow next week):

Its a perfect (rollhockey-) court (40mx20m) with 1,2m borders. A lot of grip, dry or wet. It got light and music. A little house with toilet and huge fridge. A barbecue. AND shadow-giving trees. But its only one court which unfortunately limits the number of players.

Acommodations:

We dont quite know yet... :P We try to get a nice place where to build up tents or a gym hall. We'll figure something out!

Registration (ATTENTION!):

We got 55 spots to give. The 11 other spots are saved for Frankfurts and Gießens polo players.

Registration opens SUNDAY 3rd of April 20:00!!!

Motto: First come first serve! Right me an e-mail (bodens_if@gmx.de) First 55 mails reseved get a spot. There will be a waiting list, because some people will cancel.
Fee will be 10€, pay in Gießen.

Spread the news!!!

Cheers

Love this idea! Wish there was one like it in the US nearby.

-Brett

that sounds like a helll of a good tournie

"So this is how it ends"MACHINE

Hi, greetings from Nuernberg - because of registration: should we send an email for each player or could I send one email with a list of all player from our city??
Jürgen

the e-mail I receive will only register the one who sent it! to keep it fair and "shuffled"! One mail - one player... first 55 mails get a spot!

That sounds cool. When I first read the title I was thinking 1 player polo, and only shuffle goals count??? Weird!! But now that I read it it makes a lot more sense. Sounds like fun.

REMINDER:

Reg opens this Sunday 8 pm!

See you there!

ok there is still 2 spots to give!!! And i am pretty sure the waitinglist will be used a couple of times so take your chance! mail me: bodens_if@gmx.de

Ok it seems Munich is really sick of there bad courts and want to play on a proper one, finally... I know there is 3 spots ungiven, but they are saved for Gießens super-new polo community. If none of them wants to play, waitinglisted players are going to get them, of course.

Amsterdam Fixed It ;)

The Format
Facts:
66 players, 9-10 preliminary rounds in 2 days; 30 player in 4-5 final rounds, semi-finals and final on Sunday.
same rules as for EHBPC 2011

Course of action:
Participants of this bike-polo tournament are single players (without team registration) and each individual player has to collect the points and goals from her/his games. A game is played as usual with 3 players per team during 10 minutes or till 5 goals for one team. But, who plays with each-other against who???
As usual for pick-up games, we shuffle the players into its current team. We decided to let a laptop shuffle the games, since his job was to avoid the same team mate repeatedly. Unfortunately, the last prelim round can not hold this ambition for equity - who knows, whether this is combinatorial theoretically possible?
Each player gets her/his Personal Number, to bring a bit clarity in the chaos. So look for your number in the schedule of games - we will also help you ;).

After the preliminary rounds, which will be played on Friday and Saturday, the 30 best placed players fight in 4-5 further rounds for the first 12 places (12 minute games).
Those 12 players play semi-finals (shuffled teams - 25 minutes) and the final (1 hour).

Points and ranking:
Each won game yields 3 points, draw 1 and lost 0 points. The player with the most points is ranked first.
As tie break score, we apply a team mate criterion. The team mate score is higher/better, if one played in average with worse ranked mates, than the player being tied. Afterward, the goal difference and number of goals will be compared.

Prices:
Certainly the finals winners will be awarded.
Still, there is a second challenge, which needs attention for some free beers appearing from nowhere - stay tuned!
Collect the crown caps with two cast dice inside, they will rank you to win a gimmick. :)

cheers!

Thank you Jupp, Mo, Julian and all other organizers and helpers!

Playing on this awesome court in Giessen has been a lot of fun. And the shuffled individuals concept brings bikepolo back to its roots.

And who was it again rocking the final? Some guy called Freewheel-Til?

Ride safe,

Matthias

I enjoyed every fucking minute of this tournamnet -if that can be the name- it was more similar to a polo camp with some friends from all around europe.
I hope we can do more of this kind of polo meetings.
