Bike Polo

West Melbourne

This event has finished

Polo is often seen as the punchline to jokes about the weird rituals of the wealthy, a relic of a class division and a sport only enjoyed by those with blood more blue than red. This has much to do with the fact that the sport is played on a horse – an expensive animal to ride, let alone own. Bike Polo replaces the horses with pushbikes, bringing the sport to the hoi polloi, although the skill level remains high. Ski poles or golf clubs are used as substitute mallets, Fixed gear bikes with disc wheels are preferred. Players talk about the feeling of camaraderie and community in the sport, and Bike Polo Melbourne host new player sessions to get you started.

You can watch or have a go on Sundays from 2-8pm.
