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:
I know it’s still just under a year away, but I am so excited to head to New Zealand for the next World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship.

Drew Gaines of ATXBPSC (Austin, Texas Bike Polo Social Club) released two awesome videos in the past two weeks that show off the hot action coming from the Lone Star State.

Have you taken a stroll down the ‘Hardcourt Bike Polo’ Wikipedia page recently? Last night, between episodes of Bob Burgers, I found myself scrolling through the growing legacy that is Hardcourt Bike Polo page. I was delighted to find that someone has been doing some extensive updating on the page. You can find championship tournament results from all over the world. Not only that, but Ladies Army and Fixcraft‘s Professional Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship are listed as well. The only thing they are missing is the 1st NAH Bench Championship (Go Portland!). Thank you to whoever keeps updating the page!
