The basic ruleset

  • Teams are made up of 3 players.
  • To score you have to use the end of your mallet (hitting with the side is called a shuffle).
  • Don’t put your foot down (if you do, you must tap out at the side of the court).
  • Some contact is permitted, but be careful that enthusiasm to participate in the play doesn’t turn into reckless disregard for other people’s equipment, bikes or safety
  • First to five points wins (or whoever has the most goals when the time runs out)

The full rules, used for most competitive games, and all tournaments, are devised by the North American Hardcourt Bicycle Polo Association (NAH for short), and can be found here.
