Bike Polo: Join the revolution


“3…2…1…Polo!” and with that, bike polo is in play, the fast paced sport played on bikes, where the aim of scoring five goals is balanced with the attempt to stay on-saddle.

Hard court bike polo, has grown rapidly in popularity over the past few years, and has recently been introduced to Cardiff by a group of cycling enthusiasts, looking for a new adrenalin-fuelled sport. It’s a rough game, with no mercy shown for players who fall or get pulled to the ground by another’s mallet.

Hugo McCloud is one of the guys behind the Cardiff Bike Polo [link] group who meet every Saturday at 2pm in Dynas Powys. He say’s they aren’t fussy about equipment, if you want to play you just need to be keen.
