Sheffield Hardcourt Bike Polo

Your bike must have at least one working brake (fixed gear drivetrains count), but bear in mind you’ll have a mallet in one hand, so you’ll want your brake lever on the other side.

Bikes shouldn’t have any protrusions (e.g. BMX stunt pegs), and handlebar ends must be capped.

You’ll quickly discover that bike polo is more about quick acceleration and changes of direction, so low gears help.

See the gallery for some examples.
