The regular Monday night hard court bike polo game at the Dolores park tennis courts was busted last this week with what can only be described as an over reaction. This is a sport not a criminal activity. Lets let “Polo Joel” of San Francisco Bike Polo tell the story.
Three rangers and two cops showed up last night to issue five tickets and end our night. My citation reads “Permit requirement. Unauthorized athletic activity.” Their leader told us it was a $103 fine.
We were told someone complained. There were three empty tennis courts at the time. We were having a fine night with a fairly steady stream of spectators.
Sounds like this will net us a meeting with the elected district city supervisor. The sup. is trying to find the appropriate R&P person to join our discussion. Ruckus had been trying to get a meeting for a couple months with no success.
