Herne Hill velodrome hosts a good friday meeting every year and this year is the first since the track has been relaid. The organisors asked the lhbpa if they could put on a bike polo exhibition game. We loosely organised the teams into North and South players. A few of the North london players were still dealing with their soggy beds and so we had a juggle around and dt my old BAD polo team mate played with the Norfies. Bill ‘buffalo‘ Chidley did a great job as MC even if he could quite keep his bias in check, he did manage not to call the southies ‘bridge monkeys’ which is very restrained if you know Bill at all.

Final result from a 20 minute game with two ‘chukkers’ South London dragons 5 – North London peenix 3

A great day in the sun watching racing and playing a little polo.
