Sunday Polo

86 Thomas until we find a better location, I guess. Netball WA has a whole heap of courts in Jolimont. A cool down period of a couple months would surely make the colonnade useable again?

Unfortunately we have been asked to stop playing at the Colonnade carpark. We will do so respectfully and are grateful to have played in such a great location for however long we did.

Now, we are in search for a new location.

Here are some things to consider when looking for a court.

-Central Location (the closer to the CBD the better)
-Flat Smooth Surface (Concrete is best)
-Edging (So the ball doesnt go miles away)
-Shade (Because Perth is hot, and Bobby is allergic to the sun) (rain too..)
-Lighting (Does it have lights? Will it be bright enough to play polo at night?)

If you can meet 3 of these criteria, then the court has lots of potential. Unless we win lotto and make our own court, the chances of us finding the perfect polo court are pretty slim.


If you have any ideas for a polo court, click the link above and tag your potential location and add a small description and we'll investigate its "potentialness".

the Belgiums in Adelaide

A citytrip wouldn’t be complete without a game of polo with the locals. The boys (and girl) from the Adelaide Bicycle Polo Club were nice enough tohost 2 games while we were in town. The first one was on Wednesday in a parking lot in Chinatown. Chris was on an unlucky streak and ran a flat on arriving, but Tom & Nicky had fun playing. We got a bit of a shakedown though, those guys didn’t finish 5th in the nationals for nothing!

The sun was out on Sunday and 14 people showed up to play at the Wakefield tenniscourts. Everyone had a blast and things got pretty hectic playing 7 on 7! The last game was for the official intercontinental polocup and sadly Belgium lost 5-3 to Australia :) We met heaps of nice dudes, had fun playing and impressed everybody with the techniques we picked up in Perth!

Tuesday Polo Jan 19th

Due to not finding a useable tuesday venue with lights in the city, we thought we would try south perth.
The Como bowls club on Hensman st has just resurfaced their carpark and Prawi says there are lights.
It's a bit of a ride but hope to see you there 6.30pm Tuesday. Oh here's a map

6:30 pm start at the Colonnade Carpark.

Don't be late as we may change location if there are cars there. If we do move, we'll be at the Thomas St location.

Cya on the Court.
