Just through the tunnel in Heathcote on any given Sunday, you will find a group of cyclists amassing on the local tennis court, bikes and mallets in tow. They are Christchurch Hardcourt Polo.
For those of you not in the know, hardcourt polo is the non equine version of traditional polo – with less royalty, horses and a lot more bikes. The CHP get together most Sundays and welcome all riders of any ability. Hit up (!) their facebook page to find out more, head along and have a go on one of their loaner bikes.
