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.

Brooks announces Talent & Style Award

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

Well they’ve done it again. As Brooks stand by the phrase “winning isn’t everything” they are putting their money where their mouth is.

Brooks will be awarding the Talent & Style Award to the team who have the most panache, who are a symbols of playing like gentle[wo]men, and who understand the balance of pride and humilty. The winner’s of this award will be player’s of excellence who don’t necessarily win every [any] game but play with grace and a simple love for the game.

Basically, to win this award you need to be really nice human beings, with a good sense of humour, and make an effort with some dashing team kits and bikes.

The judges for this award are Brooks, myself [Roxy] and the referees from the tournament. So my advice is you better be nice to the refs, because they won’t vote for you and I won’t vote for you if you’re not [no matter how cute you are in your team outfits]. On the other hand Brooks is looking for some snazzy outfits and bikes so get a hair cut and start designing a great disc wheel.

….0h and did I mention that the prize is *free flights to the World’s in Philadelphia? Oh yeah, baby, USA here you come and we all know you’ll look good when you arrive.

Chunk makes us Polo Polos

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

Check out the great polo shirts Chunk has done especially for the tournament. In a matter of days we’ll open up our merch page for advance sales on these. We have limited numbers so to make sure you’re getting the right size and colour, get in there quick.

Chunk has gone all out for us and the entire purchase price for these shirts go to the ehbpc. So you get a great shirt and a great tournament and we get the funds to make it happen.

The shirts are very detailed and well-made. The logo is done as a multi-coloured embroidery.They even have a bike-themed inner lining along the inside collar complete with beer bottles and cogs.

If you’d like to see more of their clothing check out their website or check out the latest photos I have shot for them with the London polo guys. This is Chunk’s second season bigging up polo, you can see photos from the first season as well.

So keep your eyes on this site for our little shop to open and get your hands on these shirts. We’ll hold them for you and give them to you at the tournament if you’re coming, or we’ll post them to you if you’re not.To see bigger images of these shirts just click on them.

ARTE – Tracks come to polo

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

So Arte came and filmed Roxy and Mike as London headed up to the Oxford Tournament. You can watch both of them get their butts kicked (Mike at least puts up a fight) here. Additional appearances by Yorgo talking French to the Germans and Otters talking German to the Germans. You can also see Oxford Nick play his first polo in a tournament. Oh the laughs we all had!!

The piece is dubbed in German, so they could be calling us all assholes, but our Deutschland buddies swear it’s a great piece. It is certainly a heart-warming story and we’re happy to have Arte out to polo any time.

Check out Roxy’s Chunk polo shirt!! You want one? Well, you can’t get your hands on Black Rebel’s bespoke shirts (it’s a team thing, see.) However you’re going to be able to buy the Euro’s very own Polo Polo shirt here soon, so keep your eyes on the site and your wallets open.

Thanks to Chunk 100% of the funds go directly to the EHBPC, woo-hoo!

Announcing our venue

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

We have secured a fantastic venue! Next to Borough Market and walking distance from London Bridge station. The best part is, no one has ever played polo here, so no home court advantage. We can’t wait to break in the hardcourt. And don’t worry, we’ll be supplying maps and directions from where most of you will be staying. Map Below
