Free to take part
New players and teams welcome.
Bikeminded (in partnership with the London Hardcourt Bike Polo Association) has been hosting weekly Open Sessions at the Westway Sports Centre and they’ve been so popular that they’re now hosting their second annual Wild West Beginners’ Bike Polo Tournament.
Cyclists can go as teams or individual players and take part completely for free. Bikes and mallets will be available for loan. It’s a beginners’ tournament so players have no more than a year’s experience playing polo (to be fair to everyone). If you’re not sure of the rules, have a look at bike polo rules.
As with cycling in general, there’s a fantastic spirit of community at the heart of bike polo games, so even if you’ve never played before, go to the Open Sessions to watch or even have a go to see if you like it.
Open Sessions are free to attend are held on Thursdays at Westway Sports Centre from 19:00-22:00
