words from guys guys guys (Andy formerly of mallertov cocktail)
“Awesome day. Without a doubt the best tournament I’ve ever been to, but I may be biased Cheers to all the Oxford guys for putting on a fantastic day. And it was great to meet all the Oxford, Cambridge and Manchester crews.
Props to Los Conos for reaching the quater finals and playing some awesome polo. And Rotten Apples and Cosmic were both wicked and should make the Euro qualifiers interesting.
Thanks also to my team mates. Sarah was an absolute rock in goal and allowed Dave and I to do our thing. And Dave is the best team mate you could hope to have. He both forces you, and helps you to play better, at the same time. Weird!”

words from Yorgo
“epic tourney. flawless organisation I must say, and great spirit from the London massive. Soon people will PAY us to come and enliven their polo events. The cheering in the BAD matches was great, the JiHaD vs Puceau match was monumental (or was it against another team? anyway Hassan was on fire), Bill & the ladies played about 7 games, fighting hard and winning most, Aidan showed the yanks how it’s done, etc etc. Expect better reports from others as soon as they get past their hangover tmrw. Zombie Fail though. But Rollapaluza win! Super chuffed with the bike – thanks Winston & Caspar!!”
words from Mike Zombie
“Fuck! What happened to Sideshow?”
and words from Hoser Brian
“-The 4 am full moon reflecting off the lake in the french country side biking into Rouen.
-Hassan smashing out of goal to own the entire french team and score a beauty. BEST. GOAL. EVER.
-The old french couple who made us pizza. Can they come over and do our next fundraiser?
-Malletov vs. FFF…the best game of polo i’ve ever seen.
-Things in general.
-Losing to the Americans…so much fun to smash around and feel the London crowd cheer us on.
-Seeing Bianca more happy than I’ve ever seen her, and seeing Tomasito dive off his bike to score a goal. Holy Commitment Batman!!!
-Seeing Adain smile for a change.
-Red Wine, Cheese and Baguettes on the beach in Dieppe.
-The English Channel looking like a sheet of glass.”

“just wanted to say thanks to everyone for coming and to everyone who helped make it totally fucking awesome…you all rule…it is my favourite day of all the festivals and one of my favourite days ever…i do however have sunstroke and feel sick…ah well x x x”
words from Dr Matt.
“Final game. Seattle v. Malice. 5-3. We had them up 2-1. They were relentless with a really tight close game in our goal. They played with three on offense a lot. Wish we could have broken out and popped a couple in that open goal.
Props to Seattle.m”

Throw-up Tourney London – 25.04.09
Blame Mike for these long winded results:
“Making it through to the 2nd round was
Team 2: Bill, Nano and Zoe
A tie between Zombie Army and Boring meant a playoff for the wildcard spot which went to Boring. 3-5
2nd round games:
Skidmarx vs BNZ – 3-5
Team Jo vs Boring – 2-5
BNZ vs Boring – 2-5
Skidmarx vs Team Jo – 1-5
Team Jo vs BNZ – 5-0
Boring vs Team Jo – 4-5
Due to double elimination bracket, Boring had to lose twice…
Boring vs Team Jo – 5-4
Team Jo loses in 2nd round making Boring the winners.
YAY Boring! :)”
but on a good note no score board or match description needed.
words from Jonny formerly of Mallets of Hazzard
“cheers all for a great day of polo in the sun. nice one em, mike, bill and anyone else involved with organising, disorganising and organising. grats to the lovely seattle crew for bringing their style to the fray. big thanks to joel and anna for team JaJa. so cool that we managed to pull a win, against a side with the most drunken canadian ever, but it still counts.
quotes of the day. Pique “don’t mistake my arrogance for confidence” and Shins “nothing”
wish i could have hung round for the apres polo but a prior appointment with the G beckoned.
more throw-in tourneys I say.”
hope you’re happy MAX.
