SoYo Polo Co in association with Hungary Like The Wolf, Buster’s Coffee Co. and Bike Rehab presents South Yorkshire's finest polo tournament, ever! (Vol. II)
***please register here***
After a couple of years off, we're back! Putting on some polo as part of the Cliff Hanger event (a great big climbing and outdoor pursuits festival).
We are greatly indebted to our headline sponsors, Buster’s Coffee and Bike Rehab.
(If you'd like to provide any further sponsorship, please get in touch!)
This will run on the 21st and 22nd of June (the weekend before the EHBPCs in Italy).
Two courts (approx 30m x 18m) with a good surface.
Depends on number and likely skills level of teams, but we definitely have two courts over two days (10.30am - 6pm) and want to particularly encourage those teams who maybe didn’t have much of a shot at qualifying for the Euros.
What we will definitely aim for is giving everyone as many close games as possible, so probably as many Swiss rounds as we can fit in, followed by some sort of elimination to determine final placings. One thing we’re looking into is splitting the seeded teams into two halves, top and bottom, then running two elimination competitions. This would be to make the elimination competitions closer and therefore hopefully more enjoyable for everyone (rather than lower ranked teams being swiftly eliminated by the top seeds).
There will also be Zorbing, kayaking and a beer tent. What’s not to love?
We'll adopt the most recent NAH rule set. Start reading up now (even if you’re not planning on playing in our tourney).
There's only a small number of us playing polo in Sheffield, so whilst we'll do our best to house people, there's a fair chance we'll not be able to accommodate everyone. If you've got any friends in Sheffield, start tapping them up now!
£30 per team. No IOUs or foreign currencies.
