Have you taken a stroll down the ‘Hardcourt Bike Polo’ Wikipedia page recently? Last night, between episodes of Bob Burgers, I found myself scrolling through the growing legacy that is Hardcourt Bike Polo page. I was delighted to find that someone has been doing some extensive updating on the page. You can find championship tournament results from all over the world. Not only that, but Ladies Army and Fixcraft‘s Professional Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship are listed as well. The only thing they are missing is the 1st NAH Bench Championship (Go Portland!). Thank you to whoever keeps updating the page!
