Early celebrations??

BAD polos Skoota and DT having a moment of celebration after their win against JiHaD (JOL, Hassan, (sub) Tomasito)

scores sat at 5-3, 5-3, 5-2 to BAD

No, seriously, great games to watch, first game JiHaT got 3-0 up on bad, think bad thought it wasn’t gonna be that tough, then they stepped up their game. Some sweet passing by both teams. There was one patch in the 3rd game where the ball was being stolen off each team repeatedly for what felt like 5 minutes, very good level of play today. Brendan also had a great series of “shoot, pause, fall off” moments, well funny…

Shoreditch Polo Tournament this Sunday!

Click to make big!

As part of the Shoreditch Festival this weekend sees teams from around the UK and beyond takeover a specially built court in East London for a day of bicycle polo games. Because of the large amount of teams entered the tournament will kick off pretty early, and be done by 7pm. After party hosted by The Trixie Chicks. Everyone who has entered to play should have the details they need already, everybody else come down and support! This will be a celebration of the 100th anniversary of bicycle polo at London’s 4th Olympiad in 1908 which everyone seems to be talking about at the moment.

Location is this court in the grounds of school right next to Shoreditch Park.
