Love, from Sydney ‘Hardcourt’ Bike Polo
It is my great pleasure to officially announce that SYDNEY will be hosting the Australasian Championships in 2014!!!
You can visit the Sydney Bike Polo page to view their complete bid. In the coming weeks we will be migrating the information across as well as posting up the exact dates once confirmed (likely late March at this stage).
What we do know will happen is that it will be three full sized courts over THREE DAYS of competition. This will be a first for Australia and NZ and allow more teams and importantly a more accurate ranking system before the knock out stage begins.
Come get some!
