One of the best things about bike polo is the range of ways you can play it and of course the range of things you can play with. People from different areas seem to play with all sorts of combinations of equipment.

At our first meet we played with old golf clubs bought from charity shops. By our second or third meet we were playing with broom sticks with lumps of wood screwed onto the end. Recently we have followed American footsteps and we are using graphite ski polls with hardened gas piping as the head and bar tape for the handle. These seem to be the best combination of light weight and strength

Why write another guide when there are enough good ones out there? Check out:

- Build a polo mallet at Hard Court Bike Polo by Doug.
Photo guide on Flickr by Tink.
Guide at the Boise bike polo blog.
Step by step guide.

- Site selling traditional wooden bike polo mallets (traditional bike polo mallets are made with a 75 degree angle on the head rather than 90 degrees).
– For over the top have a look at Brooklyn Machine Works’ £200 prize mallet made for NYC’s Los Marcos bike polo tournament which sparks.

    While liposuction is a cosmetic plastic surgery that is commonly only associated with women and their
    trouble spots on the body, liposuction can be applied to other areas of the body as well, and
    this is where liposuction finds more popularity among men. Some pharmaceuticals are known to lead to
    gynecomastia also. It also helps to increase feminine characteristics in women,
    and is the reason a woman looks like, well, a woman.

    I want to start a website. It will be asking for money only to fund the seminars associated with holding meetings for the clients and for mailouts. How should I go about setting that up?.
