Bristol Open 2013 - 20th/21st April
*********REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED*************************************
Come and see our fancy new courts. And play polo on them.
Saturday 20th (registration 8.30am) and Sunday 21st April (end by 6.00pm).
Minimum 5 Swiss rounds plus double elim (28 teams)
Courts are at St Pauls Community Sports Academy, easily accessed via the M32 - St Pauls, Newfoundland Road, Bristol, BS2 9NH. We have two excellent large courts, smooth surface, shoulder high boards all round. The centre has toilet and shower facilities.
There's normally a 3 hour limit on parking at the site. This will be in place Friday night, but not on the Saturday and Sunday, so you can park there all day then.
There's some on street parking in front of the sports centre for the Friday.
I'm afraid that the sports centre has a no-alcohol policy, so no drinking allowed on site.
Campsite at https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid...69c6069d60aa29. Contact Pete Chapman, 07seven74 4eight66four8
Tournament supported by: Magic Bike Polo, Urban Cyclery, Bagaboo, Restrap, BigxTop, Ass Savers, Ergon Grips, Modifide Polo, Wogan Coffee, DZR and Perro del Mallet.

Hmm. Camping in/ around st Pauls! I cant think of anywhere safe/secure. There an offical site off cumberland road but its probably caravns only. The nearest campsite is probably a 5/6 mile ride.There's a place at st werberghs that between some railway lines that used to get partied regularly. No guarantees they won't turn up though with a sound sysem, its that time of year! Also Id not call it secure. But it is close to the courts.

Cambridge Harvey and myself need a third player to take the place of Mr (or Miss/Ms/Mrs) X.
If you think you've got what it takes to be part of what could be the finest ever polo team to comprise players from both Sheffield and Cambridge, then get in touch with your CV (should include polo history, special powers, names of any childhood pets). Bribes via Paypal gift.

Following a remarkably swift response from everyone, I'm afraid we're now full up (opportunities to join the Yorkshire / Cambridgeshire bloc notwithstanding).
We're looking at numbers so there's an outside chance that we'll be able to add some more in, so if you want to be put on any waiting list we manage to cobble together then drop us an e-mail.
I've updated the team list (above). If anyone spots any inaccuracies, or would like to help me with my city abbreviations, then please shout out.

Ashton court is just under 4 miles from the courts and a nice route if you go along the docks and through castle park. It gets very busy on nice days and there are wardens around so it would mean setting up tents late and taking them down early.
