Hell’s Belles Ladies Polo Tournament

With the evenings getting shorter, and surfaces wetter, it will soon be time for Bike Polo players to withdraw to their natural winter habitat, the multi-storey carpark. But there are still a couple of big tournaments scheduled to be played under open skies in 2011. One of them takes place in London mid-October and is the first to actively search out, invite and promote all-lady teams.

Newington Gardens in East London will be the setting for Hell’s Belles Vol. 1.

And all of it for the greater glory of mallet heaving on two human powered wheels.

    So, seeing as you’re testing the sense of humour…

    None of these jokes are particularly funny, but they do encourage the old and tired stereotype of women being irrational, overly emotional and indecisive. If you’re trying to encourage women to engage in cycling and sport, perhaps you shouldn’t ridicule and objectify women. Perhaps your posters and copy could be written by women.

    Hell’s Belles is this weekend at Newington Gardens, but it is held in South London (not East London as posted above). The address is Harper Road, SE1.
