Women & Non-Binary course in July

Posted on
  • Hey LPC!

    So I would like to organise a free 5 week course for women & non binary people this July to get more of us playing in London. It would be every Tuesday at Newington Gardens from 7pm-9pm, and open to women & non binary people of all ages and abilities.

    As bike polo is a mixed gender sport, it would be ace if we could have at least 2 LPC guys there each week, to show support / lend bikes and mallets / help with drills & training. The idea is that, by the end of the 5 weeks, everyone who attended the course will be confident enough to attend regular sessions.

    I've spoken to Mya, Danielle and Laura about doing this already, so I wanted to just check which guys would be up for helping out for a week / some weeks?

    Looking good! Thanks for the support everyone.

    Beagle and Emmet you've been put down for 2 sessions but you're of course welcome to all of them if you're free. Would be ace to have more than 2 every week, and as many different people as possible so everyone can meet everyone.

  • this looks amazing, let me check ma diary then will add dates in. Is there a maximum number of volunteers you guys want at each?

  • 2 or 3 per week would be great!

  • Also is there a Facebook event page or anything which I could send to people?

  • Hey I'm out for another 4-6 weeks so might not have recovered by then probably best if someone fills my spot

  • Are we looking for attendees for this? A couple of my former colleagues are interested

  • Yes!

  • Hey pals! Subscription to this is live! Here is the sign up form for any ladies / non binary people you know who'd be interested:

    Please share around!

  • LPC Women and Non-Binary sessions plan:

    We have 18 newbies signed up for the course! It's very exciting! If you have any old / spare mallets please let me know, we are in need! Also thank you to all the LPC players who have signed up to help, it's going to be really great to have all of you there.
    Below is the plan for the course and a list of LPC players for each session. The course runs from 7pm-9pm, but it would be absolutely great to have both courts at Newington, so if LPC could arrive between 6 & 630 and start playing games on both courts that would be ace.

    Session 1 - 3rd July
    LPC players coming: Jess, Fuchsia, Danielle, Mya, Emmet, Max Knight, Beagle, Robbie, Adam, Woody, Matt Plumber

    Plan for session:
    7-8pm
    Each LPC player will be teamed up with 2 newbies - you'll have 1 bike, 2 mallets and a ball between you. We'll split off into our groups and do basic bike handling and mallet skills, taking it in turns to use the bike. You can also take this time to explain rules etc.

    8-9pm
    Games! LPC players stay in their groups of 3 so there's 1 LPC and 2 newbies per team. LPC players can't score in games.

    Session 2 - 10th July
    LPC players coming: Jess, Fuchsia, Danielle, Mya, Emmet, Max Knight, Robbie, Woody, Matt Plumber, Aussie Max

    Plan for session:
    7-8pm
    LPC players teamed up with 2 newbies w/ 1 bike, 2 mallets and a ball. Work on any skills the newbies want to improve on from last session.

    8-9pm
    Games! LPC players stay in their groups of 3 so there's 1 LPC and 2 newbies per team. LPC players can't score in games.

    Session 3 - 17th July
    LPC Players coming: Jess, Fuschia, Danielle, Mya, Emmet, Tony, Beagle, Robbie, Adam, Matt Plumber

    Plan for session:
    7-8pm
    Skills session. Mallet / ball handing skills on 1 court, bike handling skills on the other court. Group is split in half and then swaps over after half an hour.

    8-9pm
    Games! 1 LPC and 2 newbies per team. LPC players can't score in games.

    Session 4 - 24th July
    LPC players coming: Jess, Fuschia, Danielle, Mya, Emmet, Tony, Aussie Max, Beagle, Adam, Matt Plumber

    Plan for session:
    7-8pm
    Skills session. Mallet / ball handing skills on 1 court, bike handling skills on the other court. Group is split in half and then swaps over after half an hour.

    8-9pm
    Games! 1 LPC and 2 newbies per team. LPC players can't score in games.

    Session 5 - 31st July
    LPC players coming: Jess, Fuschia, Danielle, Mya, Emmet, Beagle, Adam, Matt Plumber, Aussie Max

    Plan for session:
    Mini tournament! As usual teams of 1 LPC player and 2 newbies and LPC can't score. 2 hours of mini tournament with some kind of prize / celebration at the end.

    If you're not down to come but you want to be a spectator for the tournament then please come!

    If you're down for a session and you can't make it, please let me know ASAP so I can find someone else. Also let me know if you would like to come to a session and your name isn't down!
