No Polo Tonight!

Due to a clash with the upcoming CX season, we're shifting our mid-week polo sessions from Thursdays to Tuesdays.

For this week, and this week only, we'll meet at the Ed Castle (Currie St) around 6pm, and then head to Adelaide High.
Every other week we'll meet at the Exeter (Rundle St) and then play at Wakefield.

Edit: So no polo tonight, or this week, but from next week on we'll play Tuesdays.

St Patricks Day Polo

Well it's that time of year again, and what better way to celebrate than to pay hommage to the Irish roots of this fine sport and have an evening of leisurely grass polo!

Just kidding, but we will be playing at the Adelaide High courts again this evening, so bring a bottle of Jamesons, a pint of Guinness or just something green and come play polo.

Also, when searching for images of 'vintage bike polo' I found this killer picture of a monkey riding a bicycle. I wonder if it's a fixie...

SYD Bench tourney, No polo this weekend

Good luck to all the Adelaide players heading to Sydney this weekend for the Bench Tournament. This will be the first time most of them will have played this format of polo. It will be interesting to hear their stories on their return.

Because we are down in numbers this weekend we are going to cancel polo again on Sunday. We will play a weeknight session on Thursday (10th) from about 6pm instead.

Normal games will resume Sunday week (13th) from 2pm.

Kat from pOLOHOLICA was recently in Radelaide and decided to contact us for a game of polo. Unfortunately she wasn't able to stay for our usual Sunday session, so we threw together a very last minute casual game on Saturday.

The sun was beating down and most of us were destroyed from the TDU MCC the day before, but we hardly cared; it was great to play with and learn from an experienced polo player.

Thanks to everyone who came out at such short notice, especially Ben for bringing a spare bike but mostly to Kat for contacting us and playing some kick-ass polo. See you in Seattle!

New eighth inch mallet heads

Eighth Inch has just announced V2 of their prefab mallet heads. They're using a new material which should stop the splitting issues seen on original heads, but unfortunately the head weight remains unchanged at 120g. They do have a lightweight tournament mallet in the works based on a whole new design, so it'll be interesting to see how that ends up.

Machine Politics vs Beaver Men
