What is Bike Polo?

As it says on the tin, it’s like traditional polo but with bikes being substituted for horses – a big advantage as most schools lack adequate stable facilities.

Where are games played?

Games usually take place on an area of hard surface about the size of a netball court (30m x 15m). Ideally this area is enclosed but this is not essential and games can take place in sports halls, on astro-turf, or on grass.

Who can play?

Anyone that can ride a bike one-handed can play the game. Bike Polo is a great leveller as strength, speed and stamina are far less important than balance, control and hand-eye co-ordination.

What equipment is needed?

Players can use their own bikes or arrange to hire or borrow specialist bikes and everyone must wear a helmet and knee/elbow pads. The only dedicated equipment is a mallet and street hockey balls.
