Wellington Bike Polo blog


Hey! Check out our new logo! Big thanks to Gary at Gibson Design for helping us with the design. If you look closely the bird is modelled after part of the mural that surrounds our home court.

Thanks to Sophie for writing a great story on polo in our fine city!
For the full story go here.

Deep in the dark corners of the internet lies this polo gem. East Van’s very own, Robbie is making history creating the worlds first “TV” show about bike polo. The show’s got interviews, polo montages, dick of the week, crashes, reviews and more. Hardcourt bike polo might be young, each place having their small local following, we may be worlds apart but we’re all the same: polo obsessed, drawn together by this sport we love to play.
Keep them coming Robbie.

Here’s some raw footage of a game using Vee’s nifty helmet cam. Thanks Vee!

We had some pretty cool visitors come to our first polo weekend of January; a lovely couple and their kids who are currently doing an around the world tour on bikes. Seriously cool. Check out their website at http://www.globalmobilefamily.com/

Thank you Emma for coming out and acquainting yourself with Wellington Bike Polo and the sport. Hope to see you and your listeners out on Saturdays at 3pm at Aro Park!

Mark your calendars! Christchurch bike polo has announced the dates for their yearly polo tournament. It’s gonna be off the hook! Check out http://chchardcourt.wordpress.com/ for more details to come.

Let’s kick off the new year with some kick ass bike polo! Bring your bike and some beverages this Saturday 3pm to Aro park for some polo, BBQ (on a bike) and good company. Bring your friends so they can give it a shot; we’ve got lots of spare mallets and beginners are welcome.
Happy New Year!
