Bike Polo Championships

The Australasian hardcourt bike polo championships will be held on the 24th and 25th Match 2012 at McCallum Park, Victoria Park Foreshore. Teams from each major Australian city and Taiwan will battle it out over 2 days of matches in an effort to take this year’s top honours in the Australasian bike polo community. Top placed teams will also win qualification to compete in the World Championship Tournament in September.

This fast paced adrenaline-charged sport is only for the brave, and attracts unique characters on and off the field. Armed with mallets, six riders sprint around a basketball court chasing a hard plastic ball. No foot-downs are allowed, contact is mallet-on-mallet and bike-on-bike, and the highest scoring team after 10 minutes of play wins.

The event coincides with Bike Week.

Spectators will have the opportunity to view games on both days. The final will be held late in the afternoon on the Sunday, and always proves to be very exciting.
