If this style of game exites you, the next stage is to play in the tradional 5-a-side game on a larger pitch and undertake an Accreditation upgrade from 3-a-side play. See timetable for the Segway Polo sessions outside of London (these games are played on 1/2 of a hocky pitch).  Ask the organisers for more details.

NB Please note players must be aged over 16.  Players are advised to wear flat shoes and long sleeved tops.
