Polo people need places to stay – can you help?

We have lots of people coming to London from out of town and abroad on the 17th of August for the tournament. We need places for them to stay, if you can sleep 1 or 2 people and their bikes please drop roxy@trixiechix.com a message as soon as possible.

Brooks sponsor tournament! Register before July 10th!

We are very happy to confirm that Brooks will be sponsoring the 17th August Shoreditch Bike Polo Invitational. As well as supplying a range of prizes, Brooks will be giving each registered player a Brooks saddle for them to compete with on the day. Players will be given four different choices of saddle style as well as being able to choose the colour.

There is limited space in the tournament because it is taking place in the space of a day which is why it is important to REGISTER NOW (free!) by emailing roxy@trixiechix.com with your team name, player’s names and their email addresses. There is a deadline in July for registrations which we will be the 10th, best to register as soon as you can!

Further details for the day are coming soon, for now you can read the rules <a href=”http://bricklanebikepolo.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/rules.pdf”>here (PDF)</a>. Don’t forget more sponsorship for the tournament is coming from Moving Target, Hell Yeah!, Smeear, Archie’s Grobags, Fixed Gear London and Red Bull.

Hot off the press

If you like media stuff check out Quebec’s La Presse for anĀ  article (in french) on bike polo and fixed-wheel in London. If you’d rather read in English have a look at Cooler magazine for a look at our very own Trixie Chix. Finally if you’re after some cheesy bike smut, check out Bust magazine.
