ESPI 2012 Bench Minor Polo Tournament Photo Gallery

This past weekend New York City hosted the East Side Polo Invite Bench Minor polo tournament, a city vs city test to determine the best of the Eastern Conference of hardcourt bike polo. Six cities were invited—NYC, Philadelphia, Richmond, Pittsburgh, Boston and Washington DC—with each allowed up to nine active players on the bench for the hour long games. The polo was still played 3 vs 3, just with substitutions at any time from the bench—think hockey style, read more about the Bench Minor format in Urban Velo #27. Congrats to Richmond on being the current ESPI Bench Minor Champions. NYC took second, Philadelphia third, Boston fourth, with Pittsburgh and DC needing to go home and work on their game. Great polo and a great weekend all around.
