About Hardcourt Bike Polo EN

Hardcourt Bike Polo

Hardcourt Bike Polo, HBP, born in seattle 1998
The biggest diffrence from Classic Polo is on the hard court, not meadow.
HBP is original from Fixie culture But it's a professional sport now.

How to play

The Courts
Ground hockey, Basketball court, Parking lot, empty space...
180 cm's Goal, or just traffic cones.

The Bikes
You can play with any kinds of bicycle.
But have to remove the sharp parts like bull-horn, stand, pop-out axle.
Pro Polo Bike is the Trend.


The Equitment
Mallets and Polo ball are the must-have
You can make a DIY mallet if you want
or go with Pro Mallets
Hlemets, gloves, protective gears are essential too

Men
3 men one team
or you can go pick-up game by random

3 2 1 Polo!
Players must be behind the base line
One of each team joust for the ball in the center when heard the whistle or 3 2 1 go

Dabbing
When a player crash or foot-down who is out of play
Until he or she tap in at one of two designated center court points.

Contact
Same kind of contact is permitted. Like mallet to mallet contact
Bike to bike contact is permitted
Men to men contact is permitted
Not same kind contact, and excessive, intentionally is not allow

Goal Scoring
A goal shot must striking the ball with the same circular end of the mallet
with the broad side of the mallet is shuffle, not the goal
One game is about 10-15 minutes, sometimes longer
When time is up, you can call a equal game It's common on the pre-game
First team got 5 goals wins Or highest goals when time's up
Tie game when time's up in the Eliminate Must set the game starting over

Australasian Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship Final 2017

Here is my full set of clips from the full game. I had four video cameras recording.

I have posted a different video of the final here;
- it is a single camera view, so is easier to follow.

The Spectres (in grey) prove that nice guys can win. They went through the three day event unbeaten. Thanks to everyone who organised and ran the event. There was a lot of work involved in setting up the courts, along with everything else.

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.
