Congrats to the Midwest all-stars known as Zig Zags (Charlie COM, Chris S. LEX, Chris H. LEX) for taking home the title at the 2015 Heartland Qualifier. Like the SEQ, the HLQ2015 also had four spots allocated for the North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship, and filling those spots will be second place’s The Wild Wonders (Travis, David, Peter CMH), third place’s Little Dipster (Chris CHI, Chris CIN, Adam ARB), and fourth place’s Mean Genes (Diego IAH, Adam, Grammar MEM). I’m excited to see all of these people at NAs this year! You can check out the rest of the results HERE!
It seems that a lot of people have been having a hard time understand what is and isn’t a penalty under the new obstruction rule. To help clear things up, the North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Association revised the wording. They then posted it on League of Bike Polo and are looking for feedback from hardcourt bike polo players all over the world. You can find the new revision below; read it and then head to League of Bike Polo to give your opinion.

In case you missed the televised screening of the Somebody’s Gotta Do It episode where Mike Rowe plays hardcourt bike polo, Michael Hersman of Decatur Bike Polo recorded and posted the video online. Enjoy it and share it with your friends, celebrities have a way of making things look cool, so maybe that will work for hardcourt bike polo too!
