Interested in trying Bike Polo?
The Minneapolis bike polo club is hosting a series of “New Player Days” on Saturdays.
Bike polo is a fun game, similar to roller hockey, played on bikes. Teams of three players try to score a ball through the other teams goal using mallets.
If you want to give it a try, come out to Corcoran Park this Saturday.
All you need to bring is yourself, a sturdy bike if you have one and a sense of adventure. We will have spare mallets to share and a few bikes to loan. Also if you bring $5 we will hook you up with a mallet head, ski pole and hardware to make your very own polo mallet.
Keep an eye on @pickuppolo on twitter in case of inclement weather.
When: Saturday April 23, 1pm-5pm
Where: Corcoran Park in south Minneapolis E 33rd St & S 19th Ave Minneapolis, MN 55407
Why: Because bike polo is about as much fun as you can have on a bicycle!
