Hey Wellington!

The World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships (WHBPC) are happening this year in Geneva, Switzerland, and even though it may be too far or too expensive for any of us to fly to, it is worth mentioning how the spots are allocated if anyone is considering going next year. Go to http://www.bikepolo.com.au/ahbpa/geneva-2012/ to find out more!

Let’s kick off the new year with some kick ass bike polo! Bring your bike and some beverages this Saturday 3pm to Aro park for some polo, BBQ (on a bike) and good company. Bring your friends so they can give it a shot; we’ve got lots of spare mallets and beginners are welcome.

Happy New Year!

So the deadline for the Taupo bike polo tournament is this weekend. So if you were thinking of putting a team together, now is the time! It should be a fun weekend with teams from across New Zealand and Australia. Details at http://taupo.bikepolo.org.nz/

Also, this weekend is the Freewheeling festival launch party. It is taking place on Sunday from 11 till 2 at Frank Kitts park. Many cycling groups will be there including Wellington Bike Polo (polo demo is at 11:20)! Come check it out.

Time to make some mallets! We’ve got poles from the landfill reuse centre, lots of blue pipe, and all the tools, so come and learn to make your own mallet. I propose Saturday Oct. 8th, Noon, at 128 Abel Smith St. I don’t know what kind of numbers we’ll get but we’ve got poles for ten people. So, first come first served.

Wellington Bike Polo now has a presence on the League of Bike Polo website. The site is the main international platform for hardcourt bike polo and we are now among the 300 plus clubs listed around the world. You can sign up for your own profile and participate in the forums, post and browse polo related photos and videos, read other club’s blogs, and catch up on the latest tournaments world wide.

Welcome to Wellington Hardcourt Bike Polo! This site is pretty bare as of now but we’ll be adding more content as the club gets into gear. Plans for the next couple of months include mallet making and wheel cover work shops, bike building, and planing for a demonstration and beginner’s event which will take place as part of the Freewheeling in Wellington Festival in October.

Keep checking back as we post more from the poloverse.

See you on the court!
