Video: An Unusual Game - bike polo, on unicycles

Balance and dexterity come together at sports centre in Hackney for 3-minute film

Here's a nice short film to brighten up anyone's Saturday afternoon - a game of bike polo being played out, on unicycles.

The action was filmed at the Queensbridge Sports Centre in London's Hackney, and while the video was posted to Vimeo a year or so ago, it's the first time we've seen it.

We reckon the riders' combination of balance and dexterity deserves a wider audience and hope you enjoy it.
