Leitmotiv

 

Hola!

One more year the European Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship arrives being one of the most important tournaments in the World.

In this 6th edition at Zaragoza, we want you feel as best as possible by following some guidelines that makes us a bit specials at our city and on this sport.

We go to offer you some small breakfast, a welcome pack to everybody (even wildcard’s teams), the best courts with light spots, showers, dressrooms, locks, water spots, grandstands to enjoy the games, some shadow to rest… everything you need, everything we can!

Last point about basic necessities is really important to us. We are just getting some sponsors which take care of real needs. We set away commercial look at the minimum, to keep in mind more important aims. For example, we’re not giving prices to the winners, because the price is to win, and maybe is better expend our time and money in everybody, not in a few. We know the world where we’re living, but we believe there’re better ways.

There are a lot of aspects in this kind of tournaments such as insurances, tenths, boards, refs… which we are making a great effort to get ahead, but also we’re receiving a partnership with some entities: Ambar helps with the shipping and pallets, Fixcraft brings the balls and Zaragoza Deporte (kind of corporation from city council) cooperates hiring the public installation and paying t-shirts or goals. We’ll show you further information about all helps and expenses.

Referees are really important and polo community cannot leave it aside. We’re going to reward referees and we hope players take part and get involved. Also we want mention the EHPA which decided the format of the tourney and is helping us to look for refs.

About accommodation, we were talking with some places where you can sleep and save your bike by nice prices. We would have liked to offer you more things and cheap, but baby… that’s almost enough!!! wink emoticon

We hope you all enjoy the event, and remember mate!! There’s a party on saturday night!
