EHBA Will Remain 3v3 in 2017

January 11, 2017

Sporting a brand new super fly logo, the European Hardcourt Bikepolo Association (EHBA) announced yesterday that they will be keeping their European Hardcourt Bike-Polo Championship (EHBC) 3v3 for the 2017 season. In the announcement they said that from early on 2016 they planned to do a 5v5 Squad tournament (Dominion Cup) in the off years of World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships, and then still to 3v3 for the EHBC on years with a WHBPC. [Side Note: It was announced last year that the WHBPC would be held every two years to give players more time to save up money for around the world travel.] Since this plan was already in place, they felt that it was best for them to stick to it. Spots for the WHBPC will still be offered to the top teams at the EHBC, and hopefully we will see them in at the WHBPC this year!

The EHBA also opened up a call for submissions to host the EHBC this year. If you live in a European city that would like to host, please submit a bid HERE

With the artistry comes a slightly higher price; for €35+shipping you can add one some these to your polo rig. For more information, hit up the Papero Bike Polo Facebook Page. Be sure to give it a LIKE and what else they have on the table for 2017.

The North American Hardcourt Bike Polo association on the other had decided to use this time to drop a bomb shell.

They announced that for the 2017 North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship and the 2017 World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship they would be abandoning the standard 3v3 formatting, and instead go with the up and coming 5v5 Squad format.
