A few days ago NBC’s Today show featured a segment on hardcourt bike polo. Like many news stories, they first started talking about horse polo and then broke into a story on it’s ugly step-child, hardcourt bike polo. The hardcourt focus centered on the Raleigh Bike Polo club during a day of pick up, and the reporter even joined them on the court! You can find the video for the “Love polo? Dont own a horse? We have a sport for you!” HERE!
We love it when university students approach hardcourt bike polo clubs to do projects on the sport. It may not be real media attention, but the fact that people are spending time with the bike polo clubs and then showing off bike polo to a whole new audience when they present their projects in class, gets me excited for the potential growth that can come from it. This video talking about the history of hardcourt bike polo, with emphasis on London Bike Polo, is one such project. Watch and enjoy this students work:
