We started playing polo in Manchester in 2007 as part of the first I Bike MCR Festival.

When we first played we played on a huge hard clay court in Platt Fields Park but when this got turned into a BMX track we had to find another place. A guy from the council found us a concrete 5 aside football pitch in Whitworth Park that’s surrounded by walls which we play in most of the time but as it’s slippery when wet we also play in a basketball court in Platt Fields Park and in Chorlton park.

We have had tournaments every year since we started playing as part of the annual I Bike MCR Festival which have been a great way to get teams from other cities to MCR to share experience and skill and meet other polo addicts.
