The camp is 3 full days and the Polocamp-Setup will be officially provided from Friday morning until Sunday evening (but it is possible to arrive Thursday night and leave Monday morning)

START : FRIDAY 10:00 (it is possible to arrive Thursday from 18:00 - you can camp but not use the court)
END : SUNDAY 18:00 (it is possible to depart Monday morning until 11:00 - you can camp but not use the court)

P O L O :
This is a POLOCAMP and NOT a Tournament!
It is supposed to be a space for learning & teaching!
We can officially use the court (incl. lights) until 22.00!

PICKUP-GROUPS
The Plan is to shuffle 4 Pickup-Groups each day. Each group has 12 ppl and a timeslot for 2 hours. Ideally each person will play 4 games for sure per day (self-organized Pickups can be played any time between sunrise and 22:00, when court is free)

POLO WORKSHOPS
IDEA 1: Reffing-Workshop
On DAY1 each group will be reffed by a (different) *REF-COACH, if you like to learn reffing you can sign in for a Reffing Workshop with this person.
On DAY2/3 you can ref the Pickup-Groups on your own and practice/learn reffing
Please let us know, if you want to be REF-COACH in the registration form (time requirement: 1x 2 hours)

IDEA 2: Workshops (f.e. Scooping, Raclette, Court strategy & Defense) inbetween the Pickup-Groups. The workshops either take place on-court or off-court on the asphalt behind. We`ll keep you posted, who will give the workshops! :)

COURT SPECIALS
Inbetween the Pickup-Groups will be timeslots for FLINTA*Polo / under18Polo (Kids&Teens) & Try-Out Polo, to provide the possibility to play in a safer space.

SIDE-ACTIVITIES & WORKSHOPS
Besides that, we want to give space for all ideas and create an amazing weekend together with fun and Polove!! If you want to offer Workshops off-court please feel free to suggest in the REGISTRATION FORM! (f.e. Yoga/ Mallet-Building/ etc.)

BIKEREPAIR
There will be bike tools provided by our favorite FLINTA* Bikeshop https://www.velopeaches.com/ & you can approach them, if you need help with repairs!

FOOD :
We will provide vegan food (breakfast/ lunch/ dinner) for the whole camp (Friday-Sunday), the food will be included in the registration fee (court/food/facilities)!
Bringing your own food: pls consider our space in the fridges is limited!
Cooking : we will cook on a big gas stove and also BBQ is possible. There will be a schedule for cooking-tasks, help is very much appreciated!
Cleaning : There will be a schedule for cleaning-tasks during the camp. Help for cleaning is very much appreciated!
Beer&Drinks: we are organizing bottled beer & Limo – costs: € 2,50

CAMPING :
Tent: we can camp next to the court on a grass area which is also a playground, it`s important we build the tents on the edge and back of the area and close to each other, so the locals can use it! Pls keep that in mind!

Toilets and hot showers are provided!
