Memphis Bike Polo has really been stepping up their game lately and Little Rock Bike Polo invited them to come up and play in a little tournament on New Years Day. Even though I knew I wouldn’t be playing, I decided to go with them just to watch them play and to check out the super awesome courts they have set up. We left early Saturday morning and got started playing around noon.
You can see from this picture how great their courts are. They asked the city if they could revamp these abandoned street hockey courts and they put a lot of work into making them perfect for polo.
After a few pick up games, they started the “official” match, which consisted of three individually timed games and whichever team had the most overall points won the match. I figured that because Little Rock had such a legit setup and Memphis plays in a parking lot surrounded by planks of wood, they that would kick our butts, but none of us really knew what to expect. Memphis ended up smoking them 21 to 12!! Even though I didn’t play, I was super excited when they won. Thanks for letting us come hang out Little Rock!!
