After losing only one game during Swiss Rounds, Elena (GVA), Quinn (LEX), and Shannon (VAN) of Valkyries went undefeated during the double elimination day to claim the title as the champions of Ladies Army 7. After a hard fight through the losers bracket, Hot Honey Biscuits (Jessi SEA, Erica SF, Tina MOLO) took second place for a third year in a row. Rounding out the podium, we saw Shit Twins (Bird MAD, Melly RDU, Meesh RDU) take third place. You can find full tournament results HERE!
Ladies Army 7 starts this Friday, yes you read that correctly. This tournament starts Friday and goes until the last match on Saturday, and then on Sunday there will be the notorious Ladies Army Co-Ed. With three days of non-stop hardcourt bike polo action happening in San Francisco, we figured we would make following along easy for you. Here are four ways to follow the Ladies Army hardcourt bike polo tournaments this weekend:
There are plenty of reasons to love Ladies Army. It could be the very nature of celebrating the women that make up bike polo, or the patriarchy shattering sweat that each competitor pours out like so much PBR—but for me, there is a particular enjoyment in the team names.
The line up at Ladies Army 7 in San Francisco is pretty staggering. There are numerous teams that I wouldn’t want to run into in a dark alley late at night, or on a bike polo court anytime of day. It was hard to narrow it down to just my top three, but here is my best guess. P.S. Good luck to everyone fighting for the gold!
I was sent this fun video from the Frankonian Rhapsody hardcourt bike polo tournament hosted by the Nuremberg Bike Polo club. Enjoy it on this slow hump day!
