We're currently in search of a good spot in the downtown area to play bike polo. If anyone has any recommendations... let us know! Thanks!!
Would anyone be in the mood for riding around tomorrow to search for a spot? I have a mallet and some balls I can bring with in case we do find somewhere and we can start shooting around. I've played at 2 florida tournaments and it always made me so bummed there we never a miami team, we should change that. They're is a tournament coming up in ft myers soon.
and of course I meant *there not they're. oops.
Funny you suggest that... I was planning on putting a little ride together to scout for courts. I've found about 8 courts, using Google Earth, in the Brickell, Downtown, Wynwood area that might work for us. I'm down. Let's set a time and we can work out a route based on the possible courts. Then let's post it in the meetup group page and see if anyone would want to join us. We could call it the Polo Court Hunt.
Anyway, I'm currently on my way to make about 10 mallets with Andrew, with some ski poles I bought at a thrift store yesterday. So we'll have loaner mallets for some people.
Great suggestion, let's make this happen.
Right now it seems like our best option for a consistent court is Henry Reeves on Sundays. Our initial goal was a Friday night game, but so far all the courts we have found are pretty active during that time. Jose Marti Park in Brickell, under the highway is a pretty cool spot. They have 4 courts, but activity is inconsistent. We'll continue to monitor this court and scout for others. Also, Tamiami has an outdoor hockey rink that would work great, but the location is not very convenient. If anyone finds a court that is somewhat consistently available on a Friday night, let us know. Thanks.
Friday Night games at Jose Marti Park. 7-10pm All the information is on our 'Where We Play' link on the side bar.
