The first sport court built to bike polo specifications is opening May 14 in Vancouver.

Enthusiasts say the court at Grandview Park is the first in the world built specifically for bike polo. The court is part of $2 million in upgrades for the park.

The site is still under construction, but the Vancouver Park Board pledged a phased opening for the park as its various components are completed.

UBC journalism students Farida Hussain, Jacqueline Ronson, Lena Smirnova and Carrie Swiggum report on the bike polo enthusiasts behind the drive for the court.
