In a town jam-packed with niche sport organizations (kickball, Gaelic football, bocce ball, roller derby and so on), the Little Rock Bike Polo league rolls hard, giving Arkansas a stake in what's become something of a nationwide phenomenon in the last few years. This year, the team hosts the South Central Bike Polo Championship, an official, regional qualifier for the 2011 North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships in Calgary, Alberta. It's expected to bring in 36 teams from as far as Wyoming and Mexico for two days of hardcourt action. For more information, visit leagueofbikepolo.com. And check out their awesome wizard artwork.
Also—the group is throwing a party at Vino's on Saturday night with music from The Yipps and Boogie Bones (Paul Morphis, DJ Bennett and Graeme Higgins, who you know from Damn Bullets). 9 p.m., $5.
