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.
To see some behind the scene coverage of the tournament, be sure to check #LAHBPC2014 on Instagram. Full results from the tournament can be found on Podium, HERE!

Pending our Club’s 501C3 status (aka Non-Profit Status), if Ladies Army is held in San Francisco, the courts will be located at Pier 70 in the Dogpatch Neighborhood. Hope you guys like killer brunch spots! The three courts will be Standard polo court size (40mX20m) and located indoors. The property manager is currently working on attaining lights for the facility, but currently there are no lights.
Today, the NAH has announced that they have no plans to host the 2015 World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship, and that they fully support the event heading down to Timaru, New Zealand. With the EHBPA’s deadline to put in an offer come and gone, this gives full rights to Timaru as host of this prestigious bike polo event.
We hope that Timaru can lock down dates as soon as possible so that we can start doing some research into tickets. We are beyond exciting to head to the Southern Hemisphere for the first time!
See you there!
