Flights. Hotels. Meals. Additional Travel. No Paid Time Off. Traveling to the World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship this year in Montpelier, France is going to be a pricey one. The organizers know this and understand the financial burden that the tournament will cause on some players wallets, and while they are unable to provide housing like the organizers of the Worlds in Geneva, they are looking to give out some free housing.
If players are willing to volunteer to help build/tear down courts, video record the games, run score boards, referee, etc, then Montpelier Bike Polo is willing to put you up (a.k.a give you housing) for free!
Yes! To make the trip to Worlds a little more affordable, all you have to do volunteer. Seems pretty easy!
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, then all you have to do it follow this link to help out:
To add a little whipped cream on to this sugary sweet deal, referees will be be paid € 3 per game!
Sign up, help out, and don’t break the bank on your polocation.
Bike polo players from all over Europe have now gathered in Padova for the biggest European tournament of the season. With the Wild Card pre-tournament on Wednesday, the actual European Championship runs from Thursday to Saturday. Looking at the bracket breakdown for Thursday, you might feel confused about how things will work out (and you’re not the only one). But with enough studying, I’m sure someone like Socraties will understand it and put it in terms that simpletons like us can understand.

Let’s go Prospectors!
Thanks you to League of Bike Polo for the photo.
Mallets were swung, goals were scored, blood was shed, and after two hard fought days, Ladies Army 6 has come to an end. While I couldn’t make it, I did follow along all weekend thanks to Podium. Severally times I found myself refreshing Podium instead of watching the games at the Polo Trolls. With such amazing players at Ladies Army, I almost cared more about the outcome of Ladies Army games than my own tournament. Killer ladies playing some killer polo, I couldn’t help myself!
In case you spent Sunday night under a rock, Ladies Army 6 ended with Hot Honey Biscuits coming back from the losers bracket and taking the Cunning Stunts to a second final game. At the end of regulation time in the second final game, the score was tied 2 – 2 thanks to a hot goal from Hot Honey Biscuits’ Erica Compton. With amazing defense on both ends, the final game ended up lasting over an hour! After the long and exhausting game, the Cunning Stunts found themselves scoring the game winning goal and walking away as champions of Ladies Army 6.
Congratulations to the Cunning Stunts of yet again winning Ladies Army, and a huge shout out to 321 Polo’s Sam Bell for coming in 4th place with her team The Cuntrol.
