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!
