Another successful afternoon of polo was had by all this Sunday. We started the day grabbing a late breakfast at Nano's (and perving on some lovely fixed gear machines - although unfortunately their riders weren't keen on joining us for some mallet on mallet action). After some food and a much needed coffee we rolled down to the courts to commence play.
It was good to see most of the regular crowd in attendance, great to welcome Damon who was over from Melbourne, and even better to have a couple of first timers out having a hit. Not to mention the sizable number of spectators later in the afternoon :-)
The games followed the standard 3 vs 3 for most of the afternoon - until a one sided match was reshuffled into a 4 vs 2 format, which soon became 4 vs 3, and then 5 vs 3, before it degraded into a hectic polo free-for-all.
After the madness we retreated from the heat and took shelter at the Exeter to compare cuts from chainrings, bruises from mallets, and scrapes from tires over a healing beer (or two).
We'll be having a break from Wednesday evening Polo for the Holiday period, so the next Polo fix will be on Sunday the 3rd of January. See you all in the new year!
