Warburton Cycle Festival – Bike Polo

*UPDATE* A few of us visited Warburton on Saturday to catch up with Danny and scope out the courts. The court we’ll be using has a brand new bitumen surface. The boards will be offcuts from the local saw mill.

We have at least 4 cars going up and a dozen players. Have a chat to Vive, Cale, Rob or Damon at polo this week to arrange a lift. You could also catch the train to Lilydate and ride the rail trail to the festival.

Saturday:
10:30am – 1:30 Bike Polo intro sessions and demo games, skills workshops, some fast and slow games. Mallets and gear available, use your own bike or borrow one, helmets required :)
(We’ll be making mallets too but you’ll need to BYO ski poles or 16mm aluminium tubing)

2pm – 4pm Warburton Bike Festival Polo Tourney.
This will be a small round robin or double elimination tournament depending on the number of players who show up. Teams will be required to wear matching colour t-shirts (bring a few bright plain shirts). Teams may include experienced and new players.

*TOURNEY TEAMS UPDATE* At this stage we are leaning towards alowing teams to form themselves, but with a requirement that each team consists of at least one new player.
