Welcome to the American Bicycle Polo Association of America
What do you get when you combine the low-impact aerobic workout of cycling, the challenge of a racket sport, and the camaraderie of a team sport? Bicycle Polo!
Polo is thought to be the oldest team sport known to man, dating from the days when Persian warriors first rode horses into battle. Bicycle polo evolved a bit later, having had to wait for some clever chap to invent the modern bicycle. Polo has long been known as "the king of games," but the money and skills required have greatly limited its popularity. Bicycle polo has a much broader appeal, since almost anyone can ride a bike, not to mention afford one. Anyone, male or female, aged nine to ninety, can play bicycle polo!

Farewell to thee , thou king of games !
Connected were you, with princely names !
You were the game that kings did play.
Gone is now your haicyon day.
You were to us, a source of pride
You taught us hard and straight to ride
On your grounds we learnt to play
and on battle field we won the day.

Cycle polo
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Cycle Polo Jump to: navigation search Cycle Polo or Bike Polo or Bicycle polo is an outdoor game similar to Polo , except that bicycles are used instead of horses. The sport originated in Ireland and was formally invented by Richard J. Mecredy in 1891. The game is currently played mainly in USA France India Ireland and Canada
edit The game
Cycle polo is played in a rectangular field 150 meters by 100 meters. Nevertheless, these dimensions can vary between 120 and 150 meters in length on 80 to 100 meters in width. The French rules however allow for smaller grounds usually 100 by 80 meters. The ball used is of circumference 12-15 inches and the mallet is of length 1 meter. There are 6 members (7 in France) in a team of which 4 (5 in France) are on field at a time. The other two are used as substitutes. International matches are played for a duration of 30 minutes divided into periods of 7.5 minutes each called as a chukkar . Extra time can be used to determine the winner in case the scores are tied at normal time. The goal posts are usually widened for extra time. If a deliberate foul is permitted at the vicinity of the goal, the team that is fouled is automatically given a goal. There are no penalty strokes. Less severe fouls are awarded 15 metre and 25 metre free hits. In the event of deliberate fouls or dangerous fouls, the umpire can issue the Yellow card (warning) and in case of repeated or severe fouls the Red card (ejection). The ejected player can be replaced by a substitute after the end of the current

Polo on Two Wheels
On asphalt courts and parking lots in cities throughout the country, bike messengers, bike-shop employees and assorted cycling enthusiasts are playing bicycle polo. The game dates to the 1800s, but it is being transformed from its prim beginnings to a rough-and-tumble sport as it mixes with bike-messenger culture. Urban players ride fixed-gear bikes, the kind messengers often use to zip through traffic and dodge pedestrians. They set up orange cones in lieu of goal posts and knock around street-hockey balls. Because wooden mallets often break when hit against concrete, players make their own mallets, attaching a handle from an old ski pole or golf club to a piece of industrial-strength piping.

Bike-O Polo
By Caroline Kettlewell Friday, April 15, 2005; Page WE31 From a distance, you might think you're watching some kind of two-wheeled synchronized drill team with a serious synchronization problem. On a scrubby elementary school playing field, eight bicycles dodge and weave among one another, stop short, wheel abruptly and charge off at full tilt, first one way then another. Occasionally a rider stalls and stumbles sideways in an awkward one-footed hop. Amid the fray, a massive, mangling pileup of bicycles and bodies seems at any moment inevitable. Yet somehow, repeatedly, that outcome is only just avoided. Draw closer, and you notice that all the riders wield long-handled wooden mallets swung and whirled deftly within the knot of bicycles. A mallet sweeps in a swift downward arc; a softball-size ball shoots across the field, and the riders tear off in wheel-churning pursuit.
Mount Washington bike polo players Dave Holland, left, Doug McCoach, Aaron Meisner and Michael Nicholson pedal after the ball during a game in Baltimore.

Helmets for Bicycle Polo
Summary: We recommend multi-impact bicycle helmets for bike polo. See our page on dual-certified helmets for a list.
Bicycle polo was reportedly invented in 1891 by Richard J. Mecredy, an Irishman. The sport is also known as bike polo, cycle polo, and even bicycle hockey. Since bicycle polo is characterized by quite a few spills as the riders race after the ball, a helmet for the sport should be multi-impact. The typical single-crash bike helmet made with crushable EPS foam must be replaced after every hard hit, so it would not last long in a cycle polo environment. You can use a bike helmet and it will protect you, but you may have to discard it after one or a few games. When helmets sell for $7.14 at Wal-Mart or Target that may not bother you at all. If you go that way, be sure to look at our page on when to replace your helmet When cycle polo is played on grass, the surface is considerably more resilient than pavement. Pavement does not giveeven the slightest fraction of an inchand the energy spike to the brain generated by an impact is very very intense. On a graph it looks like a spike. On grass the spike becomes more of a bell curve, with a much less intense peak. For that reason cycle polo might be played in a skateboard helmet. But riding to and from the field, usually in the same helmet, the rider is on pavement. And some bicycle polo is played on hard surfaces, a type known as bicycle hockey in the bike messenger subculture. It is rougher than normal bicycle polo. So a skateboard helmet would not have the energy management capabilities needed.

Go-Ride Polo! On 28 th October, eleven participants from Victory CC, VC Jubilee and Sutton CC wielded their mallets for a day of fun at Herne Hill Stadium, learning the sport of Bicycle Polo. It was a great chance to do something different now that most of the cycling disciplines are resting for the winter. Riders were fortunate to have the expertise of Peter Wall in attendance, who was the General Secretary of the Bicycle Polo Association of Great Britain and has been involved with the sport for around 53 years! Skills such as dribbling, passing and trapping the ball were learnt and the skills were put to the test with some very entertaining games! Peter reminisces over a sport that was once included in the Olympics but is now almost forgotten in the world of cycling. ‘With many versions of polo played throughout the world today, it is hard to believe the fact that bicycle polo was first played at the Scalp in Ireland in 1891 by cyclists wanting to keep fit through the winter. Four years later it had spread like an epidemic to England as the upper classes took it up. It was never meant to be a rough game, but the newspapers of the day commented that such was the competitiveness between players that most “ended up on their opponents bike”. Ten years later the adoption of rudimentary rules meant the game was to become more skilful and cycling clubs in England became involved. The first landmark was in 1901 when Ireland beat England 10 – 5 at Crystal Palace. In 1908 Ireland beat Germany 3 – 1 in an Olympic Games match at Shepherds Bush.

By Officer Barry Bazan,

Bicycle polo is very similar to pony polo without the horse and a few rule changes. Each player must respect the other's "right of way." This means that to engage the ball one must have positioned his or her bicycle parallel to the sidelines for at least three bike lengths. This maintains a high level of safety for the players and keeps the game moving at a brisk pace. If a rider foot dabs they must exit the field first before engaging the ball.
Each chukkar begins with a "joust" where one member of each team sprints from his goal to the ball placed in the center of the field.
I began playing this game with a few friends from a bicycle shop in Tucson. A group of us would get together and play at the city parks or schools. The USBPA official field size is 100 x 60 yards but any grass area any will suffice. Each game consists of four chukkars with a ten-minute halftime break. Recommended team size is four.
Last year I managed to borrow a set of mallets from a friend who suggested that I try this game at one of my next "Police Cyclist" classes. On day three of the class I broke out the mallets and a wiffle ball and told the class that we were going to play bike polo and discussed some of the rules (which at the time were few) because we didn't even know their were
