The hardcore of hardcourt.

Posted: November 27, 2009 by Polo Camo in Uncategorized

A BIG turn out for session #5.  It seems we have a good “hardcore” group of players now which is great.  It was good to see Australia represented by our visitor from Sydney, thanks for joining us Martin!  Perhaps next year we’ll be ready to enter a team into the Australian Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships, which for 2009 is on this coming weekend in Melbourne. http://www.bikepolo.com.au/nationals  But only if they’ll change the event title to Australasian Champs!

I took a bunch of photos of the session last night, but most were blurry or out of frame.  I’m blaming the general increase in pace of the game here in CHCH, rather than my poor photographic skills.  Still there’s this one…

Advance Australia Fair.

And this video of Malcs carving up the court for a trick backhand shot…nice!  http://vimeo.com/7832661  (click the link dude).

    Hey where did you guys get the blue mallet heads? is it HDPE?

      A friendly drainlayer gave us 2.5m of this in exchange for a 6 pack of beer. It is HDPE and 63mm O.D. We tried some thinner and lighter black 50mm O.D stuff too, but the general consensus was that the thicker and slightly bigger blue version was better.
