Bike Polo Age Article, originally uploaded by urbanbicyclist.

The Swingers’ Scene

A news story about hard-court bicycle polo from Melbourne paper The Age. I found this on Flickr. Follow the link to a readable size. Over all this is a pretty good story in my opinion, plenty of real-estate, good photo, listing this as a “sport”, siting Vancouver, Chicago and New York and only using the word “urban” in parenthesis after calling the sport “hard-court bike polo”. And it seems that a few different cities play in Australia. Keep it up down there.

It cracks me up that in the side notes to the article they talk about the Segway Polo World Championship final. The Silicon Aftershocks Vs. New Zealand Pole Blacks resulted in a 2-2 tie!?! That would never happen in bike polo.
