ATTN: UNFORTUNATELY THE CITY CANCELLED THE ORIGINAL DATES AND WE HAD TO MOVE THE TOURNAMENT TO SEPTEMBER 15th/16th! REGISTRATION WILL NOW START ON TUESDAY AUGUST 14th at 2100H.
We're very sorry for all the mix up with the dates. This is the best we could do after the city turned their back on us.

32 TEAMS
2 COURTS
2 DAYS

We are happy to announce this years “Hamburg arena open”, which will take place on September 15th-16th.
We will have two Courts (approx. 18x30m), with high boarding, in a roofed cycling/hockey arena for you. Sides are open, so it might be cold but dry. There will be a max. of 32 Teams. 6 Swiss Rounds (morning/afternoon bracket) on Saturday and a 24 Team Double Elimination on Sunday.
Right now we're planning to have a Gold sprint and little welcoming party on Friday night with our friends at TheBigLebikeski.
There might also be a one hour Bench minor 5 vs. 5 on the full hockey court on Friday afternoon/early night. Fees will be 45 Eur/Team and include breakfast at the courts. We will also provide a BBQ on which you can throw your own Sausages or whatever you have.
Camping next to the courts is possible. Either bring a tent or stay in your car in the carpark.
The Courts are located really close to a metro station and only 15 to 20 minutes by (polo)bike to the nicest places to hang out, have food or party in Hamburg.

REGISTRATION WILL START TUESDAY August 14th at 21.00h! (GMT +2, German summertime, one hour ahead of uk) AND WILL BE DONE VIA EMAIL TO bikepolo.hamburg@googlemail.com

Location

Radarena Stellingen
Hagenbeck Straße 124
Hamburg
Germany

Signed up

18.00 GMT+1, as in UK time?

Or 18:00 German time?

What is the surface like? Can it be compared to other notable euro courts?

it is German Time! thought uk is GMT?
the surface is very smooth an painted. There are a few cracks in the paint but nothing that'll influence your game. It can be a tiny bit slippery but still allows fast play without any problems.

GMT is UK winter time, but we are currently on GMT +1, and Germany is on GMT +2.

So it's 17:00 UK time. Cool.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!

Unfortunately we have some problems with our original date (22./23.09). Unexpectedly the administration canceled us the date last week. We are really sorry for that. We are trying to get the weekend before (15./16.09). Further information will follow asap!

The new date (15./16.09) is not confirmed yet! We will have to wait until it is clear.
So the registration is postponed. New date for registration coming soon...

http://www.lhbpa.org/resources/LO2012_Rules.pdf

first test of our "crease" looked like this.
we will make them slightly bigger for the tourney, but no big changes.
There are still 2 spots available.

Nochmal die Bitte eure Hinterräder mit weißen Mänteln zu versehen sofern ihr eine Bremse dran habt.
Zwei Optionen für die 26" Fraktion:

Michelin "Wildrun R " 26" 1,10 (28-559)schwarz/grau(bremst weiß !)
art.Nr. 0.754.152/7 32,95 VK

(Schwalbe)
New "Spicer" Creme-reflex 40-559 26x1.50 Kevlar Guard
Art.Nr. 111 00 537 19.90 VK

für 28" ist es ja nicht so schwer was ordentliches zu finden.

Please bring a white rear wheel if you don't ride front brake only!

There were some refusals and some teams merged together... So we have 4 Spots left!!

There is a chance that the amsterdam/antwerp team don't make it to hamburg but i will probably be there..

So are there teams who still needs a third?

Please let me know ASAP

Simon from Antwerp
