Last Tuesday, October 29th, Lancaster Polo posted a fantastic article criticizing men for allowing women players to constantly roll into goal, while at the same time the article encouraged women to stand up against this trend in polo and make the guys sit in goal for once. The goal as the woman’s position on the court is an epidemic that needs to find its way out of the hardcourt mindset. It makes for more equality, acceptance and well rounded players in the sport.This article is a must read for everyone! Check out Lancaster’s article and let all of information soak into your mind grapes. Ladies: Stop Putting Yourself in Goal by Matt Kabik.
Once you’re finished with the Lancaster Polo article, you must read this great follow up article by Charlotte Fagan on the Woman on a Wheel blog. It’s great to see a woman’s point of view on the issue, so check out that article HERE.
Bike polo can use more articles from the female perspective. That being said, we would love to have a female writer join the staff or at the very least, have female writers send in articles to be published on the site. If you feel that you have a voice that needs to be heard, then get in touch with us at a.hand(at)hotmail.com. We would love to hear from you!
We aren’t the only ones either; Lancaster Polo would love to have female contributors as well. You can find more info on contributing to them HERE.
