last days of august

After a few weeks of no polo we managed to play one more time in August. Summer doesn't seem to be over yet but it was nice to have this hooot, August afternoon here at Polfa court. Plus - a late celebration for Kuba's birthday. Nevertheless, polo is on, some of us getting ready for the EHBPC 2015 in Zaragoza, definitely all of us getting ready for PHBPC 2015, in its SIXTH edition! Keep your fingers x'd! <3

final day of berlin: mixed 2015

Final day of the tournament always makes for best games and strongest hangovers. I for one closed saturday with a 3AM, 30-minute, beer-accompanied ride on a polo bike.
Here are results, way to go, Octopussy, nice one Alej, awesome to see a fellow veteran polo player that still's got the magic! <3
Have a look at my final impressions from berlin: mixed 2015!

day two of berlin: mixed 2015

Day two of last weekend started with the worst possible news, unimaginable frankly: due to a mistake on the Podium (a web based service to run tournament schedules), two teams simply dropped out of the swiss rounds randomly. Including my team, Vaffanculo. First tournament in a very long time and such a bad news! I was miserable, tried to talk the situation through with everyone who's got any experience with the Podium, but no solution was to be found. The problem is real and needs to be addressed, just haven't got around doing so. Despite the worst tournament nightmare, I think I made use of the time I had on Saturday, playing some pickup, going away to grab some coffee from Five Elephant coffee roasters (my favorite in Berlin) and, for the most part, hanging out with polo friends from all over Europe. Thus this post isn't so much about the courts, but about people. Happy people of hardcourt bike polo :)
