Rising Star Rookie Tournament @VELOBerlin

Spring is coming, and it’s time to know who are the new RISING STARS from the polo world!
The tournament will be on Saturday (13.04) and Sunday (14.04), at the terminal of the Tempelhofer Feld, in the middle of Berlin, during the VELOBerlin bike fair!

Short important infos:

  • Every team has to have at least one rookie.
  • All goals scored by a rookie count 2 points!
  • A player is considered a rookie if they started playing not much earlier than beginning of 2023.
  • Every team will have one designated person that should be available for helping to build/unbuild the courts.
  • Registration open until 29.02, 23:59, Berlin time.
  • Place for 10 teams, decided by a lottery on 1st of March.
  • Free registration, free tickets to the VELOBerlin if you get lucky in the lottery!
  • Extra lottery life if 2 players are from Berlin.
  • Extra lottery life for each WTNB/FLINTA player in the team.

Please pay a lot of attention on this poloverse thread, or have at least one of your team-mates keeping an eye on it. We will announce all general information over here (such as how to redeem your free tickets for VELOBerlin) and it’s very common that people don’t see it. If you see new info, mention it with the people you know so they know too. Let’s harness the power of gossip. Also, it would be very nice if you build an ABC-in-spirit team, as in trying to balance it a little bit and give chance to different levels of players to have their space.

:fire: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER :fire: oh, too late.

check the final team list!
Also make cool uniforms. :rainbow:


pre-lottery registered teams

We have already 20 teams registered! Holy crap, the lottery will be nerve wrecking. Maybe next year we need to have 2 rookies per team? Anyway, if you registered but your name is not on the list, something went wrong and you need to register again. We still have 10 days for registration and then I’ll provide a link so you can join me for a lovely online chat and a lively lottery.

Some cool stats:

  • We have 6 team names related to food. People are hungry.

  • At least 3 teams have musical references in their names. Let’s dance!

  • Shout out to Guns and Rosinen, who managed to mix music AND food.

  • Two teams got nice puns around their rookies names. Way to go, we need more of those.

  • Two team names have something to do with poop as well. I guess all the food has its consequences…

  • Shout out to Berlin for bringing in 9 rookies this year!

Okay, that’s it for now. Stay tuned.


Let´s GO! Can´t wait.

Registrations closed.

On schedule, baby. Join me for the lottery tomorrow, more or less around noon, Berlin time! I’ll post a link over here. It might be earlier, it might be later. :slight_smile:

We’ll get in touch soon to distribute your work shifts and to deliver your tickets. Pay attention to the contact channel you informed during registration. If you don’t remember what is was and you suspect you should have got something by now, write me. Please let me know ASAP if you cannot make it, so the waiting list teams can get organized. If you need to change a player, you need to change them for another player that would give you the same amount of lives in the lottery, and let me know.

We will sell with gold embroidered Rising Stars patches for 8 Euro per piece, so bring your favorite Hoodie or other textil to the Rising Stars tournament and get patched! I will have a sewing machine with me on Saturday to attach the patches.
