Throughout the endless summer of 2019, I got to know a diverse bunch of people who’d regularly meet at a court just south of the river Avon in Bristol U.K. This was a time long before social distancing, where you could share a beer with a stranger as the sun goes down over North street.

Bike polo reached Bristol over 10 years ago and its players have competed in tournaments all over the world. There are 5 main rules:

  • 3 against 3
  • Don’t put your foot down
  • 10 minute game or 1st to 5
  • Mallet on mallet, bike on bike, body on body
  • Don’t be a dick
