Over the weekend, NAH and the Worlds organizing committee announced information on the first ever International Women’s Bench Tournament. The event will take place on the Sunday following the World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship (October 20, 2013). Bench team General Managers have not been announced but once there are a significant number of ladies registered to play, then General Managers will be picked from that list.
To sign up for the tournament, simply fill out this registration form, HERE. Players have until September 20th at 11:59 ET to sign up, so look into airline tickets and pull the trigger on registration! There is no limit to the number of ladies that are allowed to registers, so that means everyone that registers and attends will be getting some playing time. If you want to see who is already registered, check out the players list, HERE.
I love to see tournaments that are so inclusive, it helps make players feel welcome in the sport and pushes them to do their best so that they can fit in with the rest of the players on their bench squad. Thank you NAH and Worlds committee for coming up with and executing this great idea for a tournament.
Be sure to keep checking the League of Bike Polo THREAD to stay up to date with all the developments of the tournament.
See you there!
