Barbados continues to play Segway Polo at the top level, placing second at the recently held Zurich Cup in Hennef, Germany.

For the first time in history, the top Segway Polo teams met to play indoors, and with only four players being allowed on the field at any time, instead of the usual five.

Having won the World Cup of Segway Polo in 2009 and 2010 and finishing second in 2011 and 2013, the Barbadians once again reached the final of a major tournament, as reported by Totally Barbados.

After placing first in their group in the round-robin stage with three comprehensive wins (6:2, 7:0, 12:3), the Barbados team went on to beat the Vineyard Devils from Austria 9:2 in the quarterfinals and the Blade Knights from Germany 10:0 in the semifinals.

In the final against the Balve Mammuts from Germany, Team Barbados quickly took the lead and were comfortably ahead 5:1 at half-time.

However, the 2011 and 2012 Zurich Cup winners from Germany staged an incredible comeback to win the match 7:5 and take the Zurich Cup to Balve for a third time in a row.
