A while back my friend Molly moved to Champaign-Urbana. While visiting her we ran across a sweet roller hockey court that would be perfect for polo. A group of people were even playing polo there a few years back but it died out (probably from lack of traveling to tourneys and other cities).
Well, apparently this summer they tore it down (why?!?!) but the spirit of polo lives on. Last week Molly and a group of about twelve hit a local parking garage and got the ball rolling (literally and figuratively). Bike polo has officially returned to Champaign-Urbana!
Now if we can just get them to come out to the Star City Open they'll see how much fun competitive polo can be!
