BBC News was carrying this video today about the guys in North Yorkshire blogged about a couple of days ago after they appeared in a newspaper article. I have to say I do like the look of grass polo’s rough and ready approach, lack of concern for foot-downs and the general anarchy which seems to happen on such a big pitch! The video piece focusses on bike polo as an olympic sport, as its 100 years on since bicycle polo was demonstrated as a sport in the 1908 Olympics.
