CyclePhotos UK sent us some pics of the 2009 European Hardcourt Bicycle Polo Championships, held in London this past weekend. Ã‚Â The Championships were played on two courts over two days, preceded by a Friday meet ‘n’ greet with “BBQ, beer, tea and coffee.” Ã‚Â Aaahh, only in London.
EHBPC offers several free bike polo clinics for those wanting to learn how to play, and there are two left in August. Ã‚Â They even have a few bikes available as loaners. Ã‚Â Check out the schedule here.
Hit ‘more’ to see a couple more action shots, or check out CPUK’s blog to see all their photos from Saturday and Sunday. Ã‚Â Also after the break is a shot of the wicked cool EHBPC’s official polo shirt…
Here’s the official shirt, shown in royal blue. Ã‚Â Click to enlarge. It’s also available in white, plum and green, except that they’re not. Ã‚Â They’re all sold out…as are the hoodies. Ã‚Â Better luck next year, but to make you feel slightly better, here are some more pics:
