Bike Polo World Championships, Argentina 10th – 14th December 2019.

After a busy few days playing polo in mid-30 degree heat Oakenden Bike Polo Men’s team finished in bronze medal position behind India and the USA.  A fantastic achievement playing international rules for the first time.  The Oakenden Ladies team finished in sixth (and last place), but being the only ladies playing, proved that women can compete at bike polo (and does this make them the top ladies team in the world?)

A fantastic week was had by all.  Our thanks to Bill Mattheson for organising a fabulous tournament and to the AAP (Asociacion Argentina de Polo) for rolling out the red carpet for us, supplying an endless supply of water (much needed), scorers and time keepers.  We rounded off the week seeing the final of the Argentinian Open Polo Tournament (the best horse polo competition in the world).  We returned exhausted but feeling blessed to have had the opportunity to participate.
