We’re on a mission
The Trixies are an all-women bike polo team from California dedicated to women’s advocacy in bike polo and the wider biking community. While bike polo is an all-gender sport, women are a minority, and in many city clubs, completely absent. We want to help break down barriers to women’s participation in this growing sport.
We develop resources and organize special events to encourage a more inclusive polo community. In April of 2014, we helped organize and host the first women’s majority tournament in California, the California Ladies Bike Polo Summit.
This tournament was an opportunity to inspire and encourage women in the polo community and was geared towards helping teams prepare for Ladies Army 6, a worldwide women’s tournament held in Toronto this June, 2014.
The Trixies also organize women majority polo practices geared towards beginners who want to try out bike polo. Most recently, the Trixies are working on creating a free guidebook for clubs to better support and include women players. This guidebook is based on interviews with other women in the bike polo community.
