So yes, it's extremely annoying setting up and breaking down wooden pallet barriers, as anyone who's ever played bicycle polo in Memphis knows. So what would happen if there was a legit court that wouldn't have to be set up and broken down before each play, that wouldn't have low spots saturated with water, and the ball didn't jump the curb or the barriers didn't fall over every 3 minutes? Would our play progress? Would more people play?
Obviously a new court to a few polo players isn't the same as a new arena to a few basketball teams but look what happened for them!
We as cyclists are always ready to recycle and there are several tennis courts that could be fitted as polo courts but with the skatepark going in at Tobey Park could the city build a new polo/street hockey court in Midtown?
If you'd like to discuss some possibilities meet at the Young Avenue Deli tomorrow night (that's Sunday) at 6pm. I'll see you there, then polo at 7 at Bluff City Sports.
