Its funny cos in the north we all have this 'view' that there are 8.4 million polo players in london and they have to que up to use the courts, but in actual fact it seems like no-one ever plays polo in london? I was down a few weeks ago and not one single game going in the whole city :(

Thursday the 4th was the last day of RBKC subsidised bike polo at Westway. The council does not (unfortunately) have unlimited funds and are not able to extend the booking.
Should you be interested in contributing a few quid each week to play at Westway, please let me know. There are several ways we could proceed, so if you have any ideas or feedback, please also let me know!
Many thanks RBKC!

Bikeminded has supported the West London Bike Polo sessions for 12 months now. It’s been great to see so many new players getting to play for the first time, but the time has come for us to take a break from booking the ‘best court in London’ so April 4 was our last court booking for the time being.
We are talking to LHBPA about plans for the future, and players can of course still book the ‘netball court’ by calling Westway on 020 3468 5576. The loaner bikes, mallets and goals will remain at the Westway and available for your use. Please look after them. We hope to be back with future polo plans, so do keep an eye out for an announcement in the coming months.

Bike Polo May - Dates : 15th / 22nd / 29th - Pitches booked
FAO any westies who want to play locally. This is an email from Henry, the organiser of the bike polo that they do on the big pitch. The last time we were there they were playing with wooden mallets and a small football, but I think they were going to move towards a smaller ball.
The game they play is different from ours - kind of a mashed version of grass and hardcourt, but still fairly fast and furious.

The return of the Westway sessions
From Kensington and Chelsea...
We are very pleased to announce that we will be hosting the return of the West London Bike Polo Open Sessions at the Westway Sports Centre on Thursday evenings from 7-10pm starting Thursday 15 August 2013.
Most people bring along their own bike, however as previously, we have provided a limited number of loaner bikes, mallets and polo balls. Note too that these sessions are FREE TO ATTEND.
These sessions are for people of all abilities and experience, from those who would like to try bike polo for the first time to those who’ve played in polo tournaments before. Everybody is very welcome.
To keep up-to-date with any changes, Like our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/westlondonbikepolo

He can always just copy and paste it from any other story.
"Gentleman of a certain distinction play horse polo, on fine parks, surrounded by genteel spectators, sipping wine and Pimms. Yet its' gritty, urban, edgy cousin, is taking over concrete parks under motorway flyovers around the world, and there's not a horse in sight." etc etc.
