Jackie Kanyuk, one of East Vancouver, Canada’s slayers, was featured in an online series called Hale & Heart. The series celebrates adventurous and spirited women and the sports that take over their lives. In Jackie’s episode entitled “Challenge and Chase”, she talks about how the hardcourt bike polo addiction that we have all subcome to, as well as the struggles of equality that many people face. Check out the episode and learn more about one of the great people that play this sport:
As seen in the image above, the North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Association (or NAH for short) made it onto a Buzzfeed list. Sadly the list wasn’t “Best Governing Bodies in Pro-Sports” or “Top 3 Sports that Billionaires are Investing In”. No, this time the NAH is only being used for their logo; more specifically the letters N, A, and H in their logo. Boring, but still totally random!
The logo was used in an article called “31 Signs That You Still Aren’t Really an Adult“. And while “You play hardcourt bike polo” or “You waste your free time on a blog or writing rules for a sport that no one cares about” are not on the list, it seems very fitting that the NAH/hardcourt bike polo would pop up on the list.
In he past month I’ve been introduced to two, count em two, hardcourt bike polo podcasts. One, titles Shuffle! Polo- Cast is based out of Columbus, Ohio and generally centers around midwest polo happenings. The second is called BikePolo.NYC and, as the name/website suggests, is based in out of New York City. Both podcasts have about a handful of episodes and are guaranteed to keep your interest (in one way or another), so bookmark the sites and keep tuning in!
Two weeks ago we announced that the legendary Mike Rowe would be playing bike polo on his CNN show called Somebody’s Gotta Do It. Due to protests in Baltimore, CNN decided to pull the show and reschedule it for another date. That new date is TONIGHT, May 14th at 9pm (again, be sure to check your local listings for time confirmation). Tune in and show that people want to watch hardcourt bike polo on TV!
Tonight at 9pm (or maybe not, be sure to check your local listings) you have the opportunity to watch the all-star Mike Rowe try his hand at hardcourt bike polo. This is going down on his CNN show called Somebody’s Gotta Do It. You can find the preview for the episode HERE!
