Let’s get this party started! Season opener cookout all Sunday afternoon for Coolavin Park Multi-use courts. Bring your friends and introduce them to bike polo and roller hockey. Food, drinks, sports, fun! We will have extra bikes, mallets, skates, and sticks. Polo rookie night starts the following Thursday and runs through the year!
If you can’t make Sunday and still want to try bike polo, check out our Rookie Nights every Thursday evening from 6-11 pm!
North American Championship – Lexington to host Sept 17-20
Preparations: reserve community center, build ref stand for court A, nets between courts, paint middle court, paint outside of courts, repair doors, drill more drain holes
Additional tournaments – general consensus was that we could host the regional if others would come help run it, we would mainly be providing the facility
