Ladies Army IV starts today in Lexington, KY with a one day co-ed tournament followed by the main event on Saturday and Sunday. Over 34 all female teams from 7 different countries will be competing this weekend for the Ladies Army crown.
Best of luck to our women and men from Minneapolis as they party, play and cheer their way through the weekend.
On this side of the world talk is already picking up about the planning of Ladies Army IV. Ladies Army is a women’s hardcourt bike polo tournament started in Vancouver. It has since spread to other cities. Next up to host is Lexington, KY. That is sure to be a good time. Look for more information on this May/June 2012 tournament soon.
Lastly but not leastly, we have our own local poloistas hard at work to encourage women to experience our sport. Minneapolis Bike Polo helped The Hub Bike Co-op celebrate October as Women’s Appreciation Month by hosting a Intro to Polo event for women on October 22nd. Kat, Greta, Charlotte and Meg hosted the event and helped the dozen or so people in attendance with the basics of hardcourt bike polo.
By all accounts it was a great success with a surprising number of brand new faces. We LOVE new players. Come back soon.
Big thanks to our poloistas for organizing and running such a great event.
