Hey everyone,
We’ve been a wee bit slow on getting organized for summer league. This was supposed to be have started already, but we’re going to get the ball rolling shortly.
Given that we have many months of fine weather ahead, we’re going to aim for having two separate leagues to run consecutively.
The first will run from Tuesday November 13th through to Mid January, and then we will start a new competition, possibly with slightly different teams to run through February and April.
Emails to wellingtonbikepolo@gmail.com to register. You can register as a team or an individual at this stage, or even as a partial team looking for another player. There will likely be a fair bit of team rearranging in the first week and throughout the competition, to squeeze everybody in we may even need some teams of 4, but i’m sure we’ll work it out.
Competition draws will be sent out once we have a list of teams. It may be that on the first night of the year any full teams registered play first while others arrange themselves into teams. Round Robin competition will be followed by a few weeks of double elimination near the end. There will be prizes, and chips.
We will be playing pickup this coming Tuesday 6th, feel free to come down. We do sometimes play what has become affectionately known as “little fat court 2v2” on weeknights if we are short on people, a really fun and fast style of polo.

An update with a little more information,

Firstly, Registrations close Wednesday 5th September, we need to have a decent estimate of numbers as soon as possible. Get those registrations in to wellingtonbikepolo@gmail.com.

Rules will very standard with one exception.  Shots from behind the halfway line will not be counted. With a small court and only two per side, we feel that this will keep things fast and interesting.

Rain Day. We would like to keep the sunday in reserve incase we get rained out, but this may interfere with peoples travel plans, so we will play on the saturday regardless of the weather, come prepared. Our court can flood in heavy weather, and if we do get rained off the court, we will play the remaining games on the sunday morning and cut game-times as necessary to fit them all in by midday.

 

A full brief will be emailed out after registration has closed on Wednesday 5th September.

I know it’s short notice, and while this will be a largely casual affair for the local Wellington Crew, all comers are welcome. Teams will be drawn from a hat at the the start of the day. and redrawn for elimination rounds based on individual performance. We will also (hopefully) have a knife fight tourney to run simultaneously beside the main court.

Registrations please RSVP to wellingtonbikepolo@gmail.com. If you do plan on visiting from out of town, let us know and we’ll organize some billets.

Any questions feel free to contact either myself or Nathaniel.
