Segway Polo: Major Tournaments: WozCup 2011, 2012, 2015 and Euro-Cup in 2016
Having started practicing in the spring of 2011, I volunteered to assist with Woz Cup 2011 preparation in Folsom, CA. Much to my surprise, I was invited to play on the Folsom Breakout. From that amazing experience I knew this sport and fellow players would become an important part of my life. Although the Folsom Breakout existing only for a brief time, the connections I made allowed me to continue to develop my game and resulted in new friends and opportunites to travel, play with many wonderful teams and to participate in over a dozen tournaments. Perhaps more importantly, the sport has enabled me to develop what I trust will prove to be life-long friends and extended family. If you’ve not yet tried Segway Polo, I encourage you to check it out. You’ll be glad you did!
Reto was born and raised in Ascona (in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland) and has been living in Geneva for almost 20 years. He is the operations manager of Cityhwheels, a company specialized in Segway tours and events and has been infected with the Segway Polo virus since the 2015 Woz Challenge Cup in Cologne. Whenever his “home Team” (the Swiss “Helvetic Vipers”) cannot play due to insufficient number of players, and if time allows it, he is always ready to join another team that is looking for a player. So far he has been a guest-player with the “X-Turtles”, the “Hannover Hot Wheels” and the “Funky-Move Turtles”, as well as on an ad-hoc teams at the “Niklaus Turnier” in Solingen. Reto is eager to make a contribution to the Sport of Equals, has already started refereeing games at the Euro/Klingen Cup in Solingen and at the ISPA European Championship in Denia and now commits to foster and further Segway Polo as ISPA’s Secretary.
