Cycle polo is an amateur team sport; like regular polo, but which uses specially-designed cycles instead of real horses. There are currently two variants of this sport: dry court and wet court. The first variant is played on an indoor court, which means that you must either be able to afford a top of the range indoor cycle or you need to have some artificial facilities at your home. Wet court, on the other hand, is played on an outdoor court.
The object of this particular sport is for the team to shoot at, Catch, and throw the ball into the opponent’s basket. Although it can be regarded as a “catch and release” game, in actual fact this is not how it is played. A sports team player is required to carry out certain functions throughout the duration of a game. This is done by using both feet. It is these footwork skills that are essential for Cycle polo.
In dry court, the objective is to firstly throw the ball into the opponent’s basket, and then, as soon as this is done, you must attempt to steal the ball from them. If you successfully steal the ball, your team will win. However, if you fail, you lose. In the event of a draw, with one member of each team having to win the ball from the other team, the person with the most successful steal wins.The French rules of Cycle polo also state that if any of the players on either teams manages to put the ball in their opponent’s basket, then they must pay a penalty of two points, regardless of whether they win the game or lose it.
The second variation of this particular game is wet court, also known as Indian court. As the name suggests, this variation of polo revolves around this sport in water. There are several teams who play in this league. For instance, there are Association of Indian Cycle Polo Teams, Delhi Veli Team, Veli Tennis & Events, Veli Sports club and Special Olympics. The events covered by this particular wet court league are: cycle polo games, beach volleyball, softball, tennis and badminton. As a matter of fact, this is the reason why this type of polo and track cycling have become so popular in India.
In addition to wet and dry court variations, there are other variations of this sport which take place outside of Europe. In the United States, there are numerous bike polo championships which are regularly organized by different organizations. Some of these include:
Cycle polo matches take place between teams from various countries, all of which are using a type of equipment that differs from each other.
This can include things such as clothing, footwear, and the very equipment used in regular sporting events. Each country has its very own special logo or design. For instance, in the UK, there is the British Cycle Racing Union, in France there is the Autosphere French Cycling Association, while in the German country of Austria you will find the German Cycling Association. When it comes to the Netherlands, there are two different national championships including the Energiewacht De Romping en Breda and the Wipperenfabriken. It should be mentioned that these championships are not recognized internationally.
The next cycle polo league that will be organized by an organization from India will be the Federation of International Cycle Polo championships. The first one is scheduled to be held in Bhutan in the month of June-July. If you are from India and are interested in playing in this league, the first step that you should take is to contact your national cycling team coach. He or she will be able to tell you what the process is like and how you can join.
You can also join up for a local tournament that might be held in your city, town or village. For instance, the WGG Cup which is held in Malaysia every year will be a good example of this type of event. The winner of the competition gets a silver mallet and a trophy. This is a very prestigious demonstration sport in Malaysia.
