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!
Check out this great footage from the 2014 Barcelona Open. It was held the weekend after the 2014 World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship, so you will see some of the world’s best hardcourt bike polo players featured. Enjoy!
The Australasian Hardcourt Bike Polo Association is formally submitting a bid to host the World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships in 2015 in Timaru, NZ. This is a joint submission from the entire region of New Zealand and Australia to host the event. Approval of this bid a full year in advance allows for proper planning and would allow participants access to cheaper airfares.
The North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Association (or simply, NAH) is offering a pretty hefty payment for those that are willing to help referee the first ever NAH Bench Championship. Okay, ‘hefty’ may not be the right term when compared to referees in professional sports (or even little league) but for bike polo this is a pretty big deal! NAH will be paying both head refs and secondary refs. Head refs will be paid $10 per game and secondary refs $5 per game. With game times running around a hour per game, head refs will be making roughly $10 an hour! That’s higher than minimum wage in a lot of the United States!
To sign up as a ref for this history tournament, contact the NAH Head of Reffing (Joe Rstom) as Joe@Hardcourt.com. I hope to see you all in Lexington in a few weeks!
