We don't have seasons, stable teams, or qualifiers. So every contest is just a tournament. Champs of those who showed up.

Furthermore, until we do have seasons, squads, or qualifiers, there is absolutely no basis for these semantic arguments. No matter what you call any polo contest, open or closed, regional or world-wide, invite or championship, it's a contained event that one team wins one time only.

Except London.

yea,hence the name. to qualify you had to play polo last year.

Ok guys, just changed to tournament, to make things easier.

This tournament will take place during the BFF. It's a good way to make something big. Bike polo in France is not as big as in the US or UK.
We're getting there !

It's in a few months, we have time to put things together. Like two finalists automaticly registered for the European Championships (London). We'll see

Hey, any advice is more then welcome.

marc, is that space shown in the map confirmed? Such an awesome venue... just a question of building good boards.

Thanks

Hey Marc, Morgan just told me about your hand. Sucks bad.
How's the healing coming along?

that was marc from berlin with the broken wrist ;)

bikepolo karlsruhe

Ah, makes more sense.
Morgan just said Marc, I obviously got confused.

Marc, do you have any more info, at what time is going to star on saturday?

Rik
Berlin Bike Polo 2010
London Bike Polo 2008 - 2010

Marc is for a few weeks in the south of FR, sandy white beaches and cocktails with little straw hats etc..., so dont expect too soon any answers.
Rik, why? you plan to get here saturday night? come in the morning, we won't start at 6am. this is france.

i want to go to this and need a team. any takers?

yep
talk to you in philly

so, you didn't talk to me in philly.

come along, there'll be people you can team up with. Make sure you come to London for a few days while you're over, it's just a quick train ride from paris

Are these dates now confirmed? 17th 18th oct?

Hey,
it`s much easier to write who is coming to Paris, because not everyone is a member of bikepolo.ca.
So everyone who knows teams, leave them here.
We from Munich will come with three teams.
Greetings

if everythig goes to plan London will have between 6 and 9

The games on the main court all afternoon were really fucking great. Lequipe came from the losers bracket to win.

jared, so good to meet you.

biggest surprises of the tourney: barcelona is a 10x better than they were only a month ago. frankfurt also blew me away. top 5 were almost the same as at EHBPC, with a few subs scattered in.

the atmosphere at the court last night was wicked, so nice to have a court without a big fence between the spectators and players. the wave went around the court what a dozen times during a time-out?

a few more photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kev_walsh/sets/72157622491769147

great to meet you too kev! had a good time hanging out.

Awesome weekend, goods times in both courts. Cant wait to play more tourney like this one.

Thanks to the admins Marc & Louis too.

Amazing amazing...
Thanks to all teams, even the netto. to admins, referees.
Awesome photos Kevin.
Nice to see you again Jared. Thanks to mark And luis and the other, vous avez fait ça comme des chefs!

http://picasaweb.google.com/bailatclement/BFFPoloTournament2009#

Have ideas for the music, im gonna make a lil movie about this tournament?
:::: vimeo profil: http://www.vimeo.com/user1214048 :::::

P.s. Movie comming soon!!!

jeez dt, you're looking kinda guilty.

wtf is that pink thing behind you clément?

he tap out after shooting my wheel, love. The pink thing? you talk about all my brain on the floor, that's olny water with fixi ink advert reflection...

:::: vimeo profil: http://www.vimeo.com/user1214048 :::::

pink brains

ouch that looks bad, didn't realise he went down so hard, sorry clément. I think that was about 30 seconds into the first game on the second day...

Yeah, good morning...
but the pic look realy harder than reality or movies (that's a frame of a movie, all the game was rec by my girlfriend (who laugh when im falling down)). I choose the most spectacular frame of the move.
And more important, we beat you at this game!!! (at least at 50 percent).

:::: vimeo profil: http://www.vimeo.com/user1214048 :::::

damn golden goal! (we also lost to the clowns by a golden goal)

Love to see the video of that

The first game that you win against us was worst than a golden goal. At the last 20 seconde de ball goes out behind our goal, the ref take it and drop it just in front of our goal, aghata come and score... But that's game.

Great time against you.

See ya.

:::: vimeo profil: http://www.vimeo.com/user1214048 :::::

Oh that's such a shame to hear. We were discussing this possibility on Court 1 on Saturday. Mike has already put in the Euro rules that the ref can put in a new ball or the original ball if the game ball went out of play, but that it is to be done at the point of exit.
I think an addition needs to be that two players need to touch the ball before a goal can be scored.

Nice tournament indeed. It was good to play against German, Spanish and British players, male or female, and to see so many players and spectators.
I've issued some pictures and comments (in French, sorry) on my club's web site: http://esgl.polo-velo.net.
More picture to come on my personal web site in the next few days: www.polo-velo.net.
