It is a little known fact that Matt, Andy and Jess from the Brum to Berlin team are also enthusiastic Hardcourt Bike Polo players and have formed a team called 'ill Pigs' (no we're not sure where the name came from either). We're really excited that we have managed to get in touch with bike polo players from Bremen and Berlin who have welcomed us along to play with them when we arrive. It will definitely be something to look forward to along the way!
We will also be playing in our first UK tournament together next weekend at the London Open. This year’s Open will take place in the centre of Hackney Downs, click to view map. Come and watch some of the best international hardcourt bike polo teams compete to be crowned 2011 Champions! You can catch all the action from 10am until 9pm on both Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st of July. It is free to enter and there will be a picnic area provided next to the courts (where food and drink will be available). Until then we will be practicing hard at Highgate Park in Digbeth so come and say hello!
