Here it is, in all it’s glory. The proposed ruleset for the 2015 North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Association’s qualifying season (find it HERE). In this new version, 4.5 to be exact, you will find instructions on how to draw a crease, as well as, the rules that go along with the new crease. On top of that, you will find the official wording for the new Obstruction (off ball screening) rule. Don’t forget to also watch the GIFs released by the NAH to help fully understand what is and isn’t legal under the new Obstruction rule.

I know I’m just one person, but I’m really excited for the introduction of these two new rules. I think they make for a cleaner, more exciting game, that leads to true skill being favored over brute force and unskillful play. The NAH truly knows what they are doing, and they only want what is best for the qualifying tournaments, so learn it and adapt!

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:
