Segway polo match

Polo, but not as you know it

A bit like gliding on a magic carpet, riding a Segway is easy and accessible to all ages and abilities but most importantly great fun for everyone… especially on a beach!

A Segway is essentially a two wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicle which you move by shifting your weight forward, controlled by five gyroscopes. They are incredibly easy to ride and after a short induction from Cornwall Segway you can be up and whizzing around in no time. With a top speed of 12.5 miles per hour, Segways are used as personal transporters all over the world, unfortunately they are not road legal in the UK.

Segway polo was so popular in 2014 we have invited them back to play on Sunday afternoon in 2015. Cornwall Segway have just come back from a tournament in Rugby where they took on sixteen other teams and came ninth overall, which is an amazing achievement for their first competition. The team of six is made up from locals including a carpenter, a tiler and a chef. Steve Farnell from Cornwall Segway captains the team, while Polo on the Beach regular, Andy Burgess, will play in the horse polo matches as well as the Segway polo match. Hot from their success they have been invited to play at the World Cup finals in Germany in July 2015, so watch out for some impressive skills as they take to the sand.

Segway polo is similar to horse polo in its rules, usually with two teams of five players. As a sport Segway polo is starting to gain popularity. Sweden are currently the Worlds Champions.

Cornwall Segway can be found at Hendra Holiday Park, Newquay and Goonhilly Satellite Station, Helston and the experience includes on-road, off road, obstacle courses and racing.
