We'll be selling more shirts and hoodies

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

img_8055No rest for the wicked. We’re still hard at work here at EHBPC-central. I’ve been going through what’s remaining of our stock and our men behind the curtains are working on getting our shop page up to allow you to buy the remaining shirts. We have sold out of a few sizes and styles but we still have a good selection. So if you forgot to get your girlfriend a london souvenir because you were too busy playing polo, here is your chance to tell her it’s in the post. The shirts go a long way towards covering our costs for the weekend so we thank you for purchasing them. But besides all of that, those hoodies are the best hoodies I’ve ever owned and the tshirts are so well made. So stay tuned and we’ll get the shop page up and running again asap.

For those of you who have purchased shirts to be posted to you, we’re also dealing with that now and we’ll get them to you shortly.

2010

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

We have opened a new thread on the forum to discuss who will host the 2010 European Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships. If your city would like to host, fantastic! Please check out our forum and have your say! Multi-taskers, this one’s for you.

Did you miss us or do you want to relive the weekend?

Brendan from Bad Polo and Blunt Films streamed many of the games from the EHBPC on the web. If you would like to see what all the fuss is about you can get a bit of an idea by checking out the footage here.

And here’s a mini movie of a few highlights from one of our great teams, Three Less Horses.

Want more polo? (grass is good too!)

Check out our courts!

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Well it was a good 10 hours work with loads of people helping out, but we’ve accomplished something great.

You can follow what else we get up to on Twitter!

Holy crap, where did all of you come from?!

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Wow, so Europe has descended on London. Fantastic!! Our south London polo court was filled with players from France, Germany, and England last night. I managed to meet up with the fabulous boys from Karlsruhe last night on Brick Lane for curry. In bed by 3am and up at 8am, woo!

Today is just going to be too exciting. We have the court build happening today and all the stands going up. I’m really excited about the surprise that Knog has cooked up. You’ll have to wait till tomorrow to see that!

So I’ve updated the itinerary. Please check it out. Players not to the courts by 8am Saturday and Sunday risk forfeiting games. Make sure you’re there.

The other main point for players is you must be at registration between 6pm-8pm tonight at Tour de Ville. The sooner we finish this the sooner I can go to the pub!

Get to Tour de Ville today for BBQ and Beers. There is also a tour of London at 3pm from our own Shinscar. Let this guy know you want to take the tour and he will make sure you get all your tourist needs satisfied before play begins tomorrow.

All you polo lovers out there should also be checking out the itinerary as the parties have all been updated. Whether you’re playing or not, I hope you join us for the piss ups! Crumpler, Shop 14 and Tour de Ville have all got lovely events planned for us.

Lots of you are asking for directions to and from places. That’s great! You can always check out our map.

I can’t wait to meet all the players flying in today, see you at Tour de Ville.

Alright so that’s it for now. I have to go to the courts now, but I will try to update you all often.

We have a few prizes for you

Friday, July 31st, 2009

I thought you guys might like to know about a few of the prizes there are to be won. Prizes for 1st place through 6th place will be given!

polocat 31.07.09

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

London’s polo community are laying on this polocat on Friday night. Starting at Tour de ville, and ending at the pub for a chance to meet all the other players. Bring a mallet, lock and AtoZ. Polo gears could be an advantage, or maybe not.

Our shirts are classy ( & our model is dead sexy)

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

We got our first samples in and so I bullied my absolutely fantastic team mate (BRBPC 4eva) to have a fashion session with his workmate. Ha! Him and his buddy played dress up for us because they are wonderful and good sports. Check out Mr. Baddesigner himself modeling our gorgeous gear.

Do you wish you could be more like Matt? Well, you can. You can get yourself a shirt just like he has, just check out our shop page. We’ve been selling loads so if you want to make sure that you get your size and favorite colour then get in there quick!! They are proven to make you a better person and quite a bit sexier than you already are.

Besides the fantastic detailed embroidery, the best part about these shirts is 100% of the profit goes to the EHBPC thanks to Chunk Clothing our awesome clothing sponsors.

Matt has just gone and gotten himself engaged to equally dead sexy Ms. Vic, so make sure you say a huge congratulations to the couple. While you can have his shirt you can’t have his heart. Down girls!

Wanna play with us?

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

The EHBPC will see some of the best polo players in Europe playing each other for the title of European Champion, however none of us have¬† been playing for very long. This means that by joining up this year you could be picked to represent your polo scene for next year’s Euro’s. One of London’s top teams has a player who has been playing for less than a year and they just managed to beat the team that was thought to be London’s best.

Hardcourt Bike Polo is still in it’s infancy so by joining us now you will be part of one of the most exciting growing sports in the world today!¬† Play Sport London has teamed up with us to offer introductory courses on polo. You are welcome to join us. It’s a casual day out and you can either hop right into a game or receive more specific training. The details of the PSL- specific training course are on their website.

We look forward to playing with you!
