Lafayette Bike Polo Newbie Night

Saturday, Mar 17

06:00 PM to 08:00 PM

Ever wish you could be as cool as those kids you see playing bike polo in the park? Of course you have, so come out! We’ll teach you valuable skills like how to ride your bike in circles, how to hit a ball in the general direction of a goal, and most importantly: how to heckle like a pro.

Everyone is welcome!

We’ll be doing some drills and practice stuff, along with playing some pick up games. We’ll provide bikes and mallets. Please bring your helmet if you have one. If you don’t, please let us know so we can make sure everyone has one. Knee pads are also recommended.
