Bike Polo, Western Australia.

Atop a multi-story car park, between a high school and university build in the middle of Perth, each week a small group of committed hipster bicycle enthusiasts meet up and practice what is a relatively new sport in Australia, even though it has been around for well over 100 years, bike polo. 3 on 3 matches played out with furious energy to an electronic soundtrack until the sun goes down.
