Bike: Trek 830 something. My kickass boyfriend, Christopher, built it for me.
Years played: <1 I started at the beginning of this past summer and I can’t get enough of it.
How did you get started?
Christopher had been playing for a few years already when I started, and had been relentlessly trying to get me to join him the whole time. I guess I was reluctant to jump in from zero when he was already so experienced and confident because I didn’t want to embarrass myself or introduce competition into our relationship. But now that I’ve gotten over myself, playing polo—on the same or opposing teams—is the most fun we have together.
Occupation: Graphic designer at Florida State Parks
Super Power: Eating Twizzlers
Favorite Heckle: “You dropped something,” when someone drops their mallet or bike.
What is your best polo memory? I’ll have to think about this one some more.
Where do you see polo in 5 years time? Five years from now, I think the word will have spread a bit more, and more people will be drawn to the game.
