Last weekend Geneva Bike Polo hosted the fourth annual Hell’s Belles ladies only bike polo tournament. Making the trek all the way to Switzerland from Australia, Claire Wilson of Style She Spoke, wrote an amazing round up of the monumental event. Find out more info and read her roundup, HERE!
There are two things that the Midwest knows how to do well:
- Throw bike polo tournaments.
This video from the Hallowmeme tournament held in Grand Rapids, MI last month proves my point exactly. Enjoy the video and head to a tournament in the Midwest as soon as possible!
This weekend Indianapolis Bike Polo is hosting the first ever Slaydy Hawkins bike polo tournament. As the name suggests, the tournament is modeled after the traditional Sadie Hawkins Dance, where in the ladies ask the men to the dance. Much like the high school dance, ladies get pick their two other partners for the tournament, be it coed or an all girls death squad. I’m really stoked on the idea of the tournament and I can’t wait to see it develop on Podium. If you want to follow the tournament this weekend as well, use this link HERE!

If you’re from North American, then you probably recognize a couple of faces from the championship team (RompeBolas) at the 1st Latin American Bike Polo Championship held last weekend in Bogota, Colombia. Diego of Mucho Take It Easy fame and Pelon (formally of Los Cuatreros) joined forces with Memo from Mexico City to win the tournament. They did so by coming back from the losers bracket to beat Underdogs (Suju, Garga, and Wagner of Sao Paulo, Brazil) twice in both final games.
The first Latin American Bike Polo Championship starts today in Bogota, Colombia. As the bike polo club in Mexico City prepared to send players to the tournament, they made this video to show off their club.
