Hit ‘Em in The Mouth

“Hit ‘Em in The Mouth”, is a documentary exploring the Seattle Bike Polo scene, the birthplace of our beloved game.

The film centres around the dominate figures of the scene, including the “father” of hardcourt bike polo; Matt Messenger, the 2009 world champions; Team Smile as well as up-and-coming players in the city. It’s sure to be a good watch.

The film’s world premier is June 30th in NYC at Anthology Film Archives for NY BFF.

It would be great to have the EU premier in London during this summers London Open.

WHBPC 2011 Final

Last weekend it was the world hardcourt bike polo championships in Seattle – the mother land of bike polo.

Unfortunately we couldn’t make it out there despite qualifying…but some of our Euro friends did and hell they showed the rest of the world what Europe’s got.

With 3 EU teams finishing in the top 5 and an absolute epic performance by French champions Call Me Daddy to take 2nd, making all those at home watching the live stream feel ever so proud – although the results  also made us wished we’d gone out there even more.

The polo world order is definately changing. Polo has only been played seriously in Europe for the past 3 years, yet already it’s  taking a place at the top. This is only going to improve in the years to come and with the Worlds in Europe next year I’m predicting a home win!

Big pat on the back to East Van for taking this years crown, but massive congrats to Call Me Daddy, Iron Ponies, L’Equipe, DTGP, Polosynthese and Money Punch for repping EU hard.
