We've been contacted with regards to the possibility of attending a grass polo session in Fulham.
It's on Wednesday till dark at South Park from 6 till dark as below.
Might be a worthwhile trip to recruit and if not, just for goodwill you support another polo scene albeit of a different genre. I've also invited them to London Mixer.
I'm keen to pop by and have a go and introduce ourselves. IIRC they might even have played a few sessions at Westway as the page is for The Chelsea Pedlars Grass Bicycle Polo club.

Yeah we should send someone down to poach their players!
We were also called by a vintage bike festival who are holding a grass polo tourney at HH wanting to sell us discount tickets. I said we didn't want go, if you do let me know
Called? We have a number? :D
Jokes aside, I will be keen to go back to HH but not as a paying participant and in all honestly they should be paying us to go!
We don't have a number- the new website emails me and I gave them my number. That is what I told the person- we don't pay!
LOL at HH. They're really trying to be the definition of cycling elitism aren't they?
I'm up for doing this and also inviting them to one of ours but I guess some sort of equipment exchange/providing will be in order for each event
I would be up for doing this
What date do we reckon?
Next week since there'll be league games up North on Thursday so it's unlikely Wednesday North will happen?
We have a league match on weds too I think- how about the week after
That would work!
@citygent @cafafox 30th May works for you guys?
Sorry, out. Surprise time off means I'll be going to Wales until Friday
This sounds fun, I could be in
Do they've have equipment for us to use? Are they expecting us? Can we drink?
Is this still happening?
I've been chasing, Facebook messages and email but have not heard back.
Are we willing to give it another day and decide tomorrow?
Hey im in for grass polo
There were grass polo players in Richmond Park on Tuesday, meant to mention, but forgot by the time I got to the court.
They were playing between Beverly brook and the white lodge. Range rovers everywhere.
