The Segway HT Polo Games 2006 Come to Auckland
New Zealand Segway HT Polo team are announcing the 1st Segway HT Polo Games of 2006. The tournament will take place 18 - 19 February 2006 in Auckland, New Zealand.

The winner team will retain the rights to host the next year's tournament, and receive the “Woz Challenge Cup,” which will reside with the winning country until the next tournament.

The games are sponsored by Fivo, a New Zealand provider of wireless broadband access.

The local team, being called NZ Pole Blacks Segway Polo Team is Phillip Bendall, Steve Simms, Rod Drury and Brett Jones.

The USA team is led by Apple Computer co-founder Steve Wozniak.

Segway HT Polo is a spin off sport which fuses the high-tech, self balancing transportation the Segway HT, with a 2000 year old game usually reserved for players on horseback. The game is played much like horse polo but on the Segway HT instead.

What makes this event unique is that it’s the first time in the world this has been played between international teams.

Teams from China, France and UAE have shown interest in the competition and have yet to confirm their presence.

Games are being played in Auckland City and the NZ Polo Open in Karaka.
