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!
Megan is 22, born 1995, in the Midlands in England, UK. She lives on a farm in the quiet, tranquil countryside. After finishing her higher education, she now works in the automotive industry.
Megan learned about Segway Polo through a business event in September 2014 where she met Mark, April and Drew. She was intrigued though hesitant at first but began to play regularly on weekends, as the team’s numbers grew and grew.
Mark’s partner, April, had the idea to host the first UK tournament which was a great success and a few small engagements followed with visits from other teams internationally. This led to the set up of the first Segway Polo league. Megan has been to many of the international tournaments playing for a variety of different teams. She was even part of the winning team in Barbados in 2016.
To document her journey and passion in playing Segway Polo and to expose the sport to others through a player’s eyes, she started a blog which has many monthly views. She is also very active on social media. She still plays Segway Polo but as a floating player and is always looking for an invitation to play.
