Teams are welcome from everywhere and the prizes are gonna be great. It will be so great for teams from around the UK and further afield to get together and meet each other, and to play in a city other than London!

If you are from out of town please let us know if you want us to find you a place to stay and how many nights you’ll be staying.

Paris BFF Bike Polo Tournament

BFF Polo Tournament
Bike Polo Tournament
Oct. 3rd & 4th, 2009
Paris, France

Hey everyone !
Our next Championship is taking place during the 2009 BFF in Paris.
It will last 2 days :
Oct 3rd : Qualifiers
Oct 4th : Quarter / semi and finals
Location to be determined

More info and flier soon…

This info is new and October 2009 is a good amount of lead time so I’ll suggest to rethink calling this event a “championship” because I wouldn’t want to see you have to re-edit and reprint all your fliers, like London did in 2008, to correctly identify this as a “tournament”.

Best of luck to you, and I hope it’s a success.

Edit:

I originally posted this 10 months before the tournament dates and those dates got set back a couple weeks to the 17th-18th of Oct. Also the flier changed from the original. I never posted the original because it was boasting “Championship” and personally I disagreed and knew the flier would be re-done or at least re-worded. It was, see it here.

36 teams

Results:

1st place: “L’equipe” (Mario, Manuel and Lucas) Geneva
2nd place: “Apologies Accepted” (Marc & Louis David, Adam ) Paris/MCR
3rd place: “Poloholics Toros” (Pablo, Eddy, Andreas) Munich

No, I don’t expect any bike polo players to roll this hub set on the court. But that don’t mean they ain’t pretty. To read a review on this product visit UrbanVelo.org and to buy some visit TrackstarNYC. And if your looking for some good hubs for bike polo, visit Milwaukee Bicycle Co. and take a look at the 48 spoke hubs.
