World Bike Polo Championships

This common-man's version of the Sport of Kings allegedly originated in Ireland as the brain-child of one Richard Mecredi in 1891, where it was played on The Scalp, outside Dublin.

Bicycle Polo quickly spread to England and the continent, and in 1897, the first club was started in the United States. In 1908 it was included in the Olympic games held in Shepherds Bush, London. The sport all but died out during the First World War but enjoyed a rebirth during the 30s. It remains a popular sport in some areas.

The game of Bike Polo is a variation of the equestrian game with a bicycle being substituted for the polo pony.

Although not as glamorous as the equine variety, Bike Polo offers as much challenge and fun without the prohibitive price tag. Like horse polo, two teams contest the bicycle version. The simple objective for each team is to score a greater number of goals than its opponent within a specified amount of time. A game or match is made up of four ten-minute chukkars (a holdover from the equestrian game, it is the same as a quarter). There is a two-minute break between the first and second chukkar, and third and fourth chukkar and a ten-minute half time.

In this World Championships India beat Canada in the final with a score 8 to 7.
