Segway HT Polo Game Finishes Up in a Tie
The Silicon Valley Aftershocks and the New Zealand Pole Blacks played the 1st International Segway Polo Tournament at Willow Park in Karaka, Auckland over the weekend for the “Woz Challenge Cup”.

The game ended in a 2-2 tie at the 5th chukka played in front of a crowd of about 1,000 spectators at the Porsche NZ Polo Open.

“We’re blown away with the result” says Steve Simms, New Zealand Pole Black and tournament organiser, “the Kiwi’s rose to the occasion to take on the very well conditioned and practiced US team. We were the underdogs from the outset so this result is incredible considering the length of time we’ve been playing the game in New Zealand compared to our US challengers.”

The first chukka set the tone with a scoreless finish but by the end of the third chukka, it looked like the US we’re going to take the Cup with a score line of 2-1 to the Aftershocks. A goal scored by the Pole Blacks in the fourth chukka equalised the game to carry on through to a nail biting finish for Tie in the fifth and final chukka.

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

Steve Wozniak, Silicon Valley Aftershock and Co-Founder of Apple Computer, was impressed by the quality of the New Zealand team. His team mates from the San Francisco Bay area are now making plans for the next tournament challenge to be held in the US next year.

The next challenge will see many more teams from around the world take part now that the New Zealand Tournament has set the stage for Segway HT Polo.
