Whilst travelling through New Zealand, I was fortunate to not only play in the Australasian Bike Polo Champs but also hit up a few city scenes too.
Bike polo is fast growing in New Zealand, with new scenes popping up all over the country. And hopefully for the first time, we’ll be seeing a team from NZ (Christchurch to be exact) attend this years Worlds in Florida, having qualified via the Australasian Champs.
I hope the growth of polo continues in NZ.
Below are some photo’s taken during my visits to Wellington, Taupo and Auckland.
I always find it interesting to see how each scene (where ever it is in the world) handles their court situation. Wellington’s was definitely one of the more unique courts I’ve played on and the guys in Taupo had an awesome fold up court that they packed away and stored after each session – very resourceful.
Big thanks to all those in NZ who made me feel welcome to play and hang out in their scenes.
