Matt “Messman” Messenger was one of hardcourt bike polo’s original six. Him along with five other messengers came up with the sport while waiting for deliveries at their bike courier job. Messman helped push this hobby of theirs into a sport, and because of his influence in the sport, he was in the spotlight on the show Four Peaks.
Four Peaks is a monthly show put together by the graduate Communications Department at the University of Washington. Hosted by Hanson Hosein, Four Peaks “taps into the Pacific Northwest’s rich endowment of idea generators, influential activists, business visionaries and inspired storytellers.” Hardcourt bike polo’s roots are in Seattle, Washington, while it’s branches have now reached countries all over the world; this lead Hosein and Four Peaks to reach out to Messman for an interview on the sport.
