Right now we are working on putting together the 2011 Bench Minor Tournament this Summer right here in downtown Chicago. We need funding for two basic things right now: Permits and the boards to make the court. Any generosity that you could inpart upon us, whether it be a cash donation or a donation of wood to help us make our court, it would be greatly appreciated.

If you would like to donate to help us put on this awesome tournament please click the button below. If you would like to help us out in some other way (donating wood for boards for instance), please click here.

Chicago Bike Polo is currently ranked second in the world following the performance of Team Machine Politics at the 2010 World Hardcourt Championships in Berlin, Germany. Read about it here. Sincere thanks are due for the support we’ve gotten from our friends, family and our sponsors. Much appreciated.

Take a look around the site.

If you want to join us, look at the map and calendar. Heavy travel or inclement weather can have their disruptive effects but generally pick-up happens three times a week, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 12 pm. We stop when we’re spent.

The tournament season barely stops so there’s always the chance that a few of us have returned from a tournament with good news. Our roster of players changes yearly. Our interests vary.

We also rely on help from the community to make this possible. If you or anyone you know is interested in sponsoring Chicago Hardcourt, please drop us a line.
