so after sending out the first round of e-mails this morning to interested players, i immediately got a few responses asking how to build mallets! using the great advice found at hardcourt bike polo i hope that this helps clear up some concerns.
if anyone knows where i can find things like ski poles, golf clubs, thin bamboo sticks and plastic pip in shanghai please let me know!
here are the basics - you will need the following :
1. a ski pole, or golf club shaft, or thin bamboo shaft - roughly around 50'' in length
2. a plastic pipe - but not that cheap PVC pipe you find at hardware stores!
3. one bolt and nut
4. some grip tape for your handle!
