EHBPC 2019 Zürich
July 16 - July 21
We hope you have heard the news and are all happy to fight for a spot to compete at the 2019 EHBPC here in Zürich!
Because teams have to qualify in a tournament beforehand, there will not be any info on registration here anytime soon. This page is just supposed to keep you informed about the event in general.
What we have in mind: We want the Euros to be at the highest possible level of the sport. At the same time, we also want to have an amazing party with ALL our friends.
The main event is gonna be held on three courts, 19th to 21st of July, on the perfectly smooth concrete of the Dolder Ice Rink at the top of Zürich. Details about Qualification, number of teams and mode will be published through EHBA.
A Wildcard tournament with 16 teams will be held on our Hardhof court on the 17th & 18th.
Those who don’t advance from the wildcard-tournament and those who want to come party with us but can’t play in the main event are very welcome to keep playing pick-ups or organize their own tournament on hardhof! We are going to ask you about your preferences soon, right here.
It would be great if someone would organize a tournament on the weekend before more or less close by that you all could connect! Zürich can be marvellous in summer and we would love to hang out with as many of you as possible starting on Tuesday the 16th! Swimming in the lake and the river everyday, grilling, playing polo or anything else… we are gonna organize:
– Rideout & chill on Wednesday
– Alleycat on Thursday night
– A dope concert on the spot on Saturday night
– Biiiiig Party in the surrounding woods on Friday night
Finally we are aware that it doesn’t get much more expensive than Zürich. For renting this place alone, we will pay around 3500 Euros for three days – without the courts – and that is with a lot of goodwill. So naturally, registration won’t be cheap – around 60 euros. We are gonna publish our budget and costs, so you can see your cash is being well spent!
Getting a place to sleep below 60 Euros p night/ Person, is close to impossible as well. We are working hard to offer housing for additional 60 Euros per Person for three nights. We are gonna try and offer as many meals as we can for the same reason. (we might actually ask for help with that).
If someone is considering not coming because of money, please don’t hesitate to contact us!! We will find a solution.
One more thing: We strive to make the event as green as we can! From your side, we are talking about transportation. There will be a tiny 10 euro discount if you come by train. If you take the car, please pack it to the max!!
Thank you all for your attention, I hope you are as excited as we are about the party of the year!
Lots of Love & Peace & Polo //// Zürich Bike Polo
