I am currently the internet contact for Unicycle Hockey in London. Lee isn’t
wired up yet, but he is trying hard, so be warned, he may burst on to this list
For any other people in the London area, the details of our weekly practice are
in my .sig, but you should probably phone me for detailed directions and/or
information on dates.
The club is pretty healthy at the moment, with around ten players attending
practice each week. We have a great venue (large, suitable and safe) and we
would welcome new players or visitors of any standard.
Contact me for any further details!

PS. A word about sticks. If you want to get a better stick than the cheap
‘Artis’ ones then I have to recommend ‘Titan’. They cost at least twice as
much and last around four times as long as any of the cheaper makes. Most of
the LUNIs use Titans. (British champions since 1993, 2nd best club in Europe
- Eurocycle 1994)
