This announcement was posted by Alias Tagami, the new head of Public Relations for the North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Association (NAH). The announcement references information that we shared with you at the end of last year. So find that information here: Help the NAH Expand Bike Polo Infrastructure. Read their latest announcement below:

While providing support to Pittsburgh Bike Polo’s effort to get a court built, a question came up about what a club would want to ask for if they had the chance. Here’s an example picture NAH provided so that they could pass it on to their developer.

Just as a reminder, the NAH is collecting as much information as we can about individual clubs’ efforts in building courts. Send your success and challenge stories to us (alias@nahardcourt.com).

Share pictures of your court on their Facebook post!

Story filed by Crusher

I don’t money shame, nor do I have any money shame: I’m a pretty broke guy. I’m doing a lot better than most others out there, to be sure, but speaking generally I don’t have very much to spend on things that tickle my fancy or for a night out on the town. My money is basically spent before I make it, to put it in the clearest terms.

And that’s part of the reason that bike polo was so attractive to me when I started it years ago. I spent something like 100 bucks on my first bike (a specialized Hardrock frame, parts from everywhere), and maybe 30 bucks on all the other equipment I used (a helmet, eventually, gloves, and a free mallet from the Godfather of my club, Kyle).

And I was off running.

The Future of Bike Polo Starts With One Instagram Photo

In North America it has been talked about for years and with one Instagram post, it looks like our dream may finally come true.

Well i got enough for two teams, who’s in? #bikepolo#detroitbikecity#slowroll#squad

With that message posted along with the photo above, Detroit Bike Polo is born! The post came from the Instagram handle @killabeards211, who is known to the real world as Mike Ross. We wish Mike the best of luck starting the club; in fact let’s all keep your fingers crossed for him. There have to be so many amazing old hockey courts that are no longer being used, and even better than that, there surely are old warehouses or even stadiums where amazing indoor tournaments could be held.

As I mentioned before, we all have joked about the polo Mecca potential of Detroit, here’s to you, Mike, for starting the future of bike polo!
