A bit of history

Ladies Army is an annual all-female bike polo tournament started in 2009 by the women of East Vancouver Bike Polo in an effort to highlight female bike polo talent. Every year, Ladies Army is an anticipated event, drawing female polo players from around the world to battle it out on a central court and to showcase new talent. Previous Ladies Army tournaments were hosted by New York City Bike Polo in 2010 and Austin Texas Polo Social Club in 2011.
