What Is Bike Polo & How Do You Play It?

Anyone can play – you just need a bicycle, a mallet and a ball. For more information about bicycle specs, click here.

There aren’t many rules but here is a taster for you –

– Teams are made up of 3 players

– To score you have to use the end of your mallet (hitting with the side is called a shuffle)

– Don’t put your foot down (if you do, you must tap out at the side of the court)

– Any contact must be ‘like to like’ (mallet to mallet, bike to bike, body to body)

– First to five points wins (or whoever has the most goals when the time runs out)
