First Purpose Built Bike Polo Court in Vancouver
« em: Fevereiro 01, 2011, 10:02:45 am »


The East Vancouver bike polo players take things pretty seriously, enough so that they were able to get together and attend enough city planning meetings with a good enough pitch for a dedicated polo court that come this June they’ll get what they wished for. While there are a few cities with dedicated polo facilities, up until this point they have been tennis and hockey court cast-offs, not purpose built facilities like this.

Stephanie Maingot, a member of Friends of Grandview Park, said some local residents favoured creating green space instead of the new court. However, she praised advocates like Moffatt for conducting themselves professionally throughout the public process ahead of the renovations.

“My point is, they came out to every single consultation meeting,” Maingot told the Straight by phone. “They introduced themselves to me.…I think they are sort of an alternative group, and it is an excellent example of what happens when a group can actually consult with the city. And they actually got their court.”
