Bidding Process for the Australasian Championships 2015
The current process for a city to bid for the 2015 Australasian Championships is listed in the “AHBPC Bid Process” sub menu.
With Australasian Hardcourt Bike Polo Association (a.k.a Jedi Council) now functioning, polo in Australia & New Zealand is one step closer to be legitimised in the wider community as an official sport. While this will not affect the casual pick-up and weekly social games, it will help to create a communication bridge between clubs as well as maintaining a consistent rule-set and assistance in organizing major tournaments.
So far, since its conception in 2011, the AHBPA has overseen the allocation of Australasian spots for the worlds championships in 2012 and 2013, and has created a bidding process for hosting the Australasion Championships and has created and maintained an AHBPA ruleset for gameplay. We are currently looking at ways that we can further achieve the aim of uniting bike polo across Australasia and improving bike polo across Australasia.
