Ladies Army IV Polo Tournament Gallery

This past weekend Lexington KY hosted the fourth annual Ladies Army bike polo tournament, with three full days of women’s dominated polo. While there was a one-day, co-ed tournament on Friday with some 50 teams entered, the real focus of the weekend is the two-day, women’s only Ladies Army tournament. Not only a gathering of the female tribe in one place, the event is an unofficial world championship of women’s bike polo attracting players from as far as Europe and Japan to make the trip to Kentucky to battle it out. A full 32 teams competed for the Ladies Army title, playing a double elimination tournament well into the evening on Sunday. It was a hell of a tournament to watch, with many of the games being on equal footing as the hardest fought games in any other tournament. Especially late in the day Sunday it was top-notch, super aggressive polo from the joust to the final whistle. Lexington Bike Polo never disappoints, and the ladies playing all weekend killed it. Very glad to have made the trip and stuck around for duration.
