About the Boxwood Bicycle Polo Company

The Boxwood Bicycle Polo Company was founded in 1994 by Lou Lopez and Bill Matheson, two members of the legendary Boxwood Bicycle Polo Team, which went undefeated in 4-on-4 competition from 1972 through 1981, at which point they went their separate ways. That's Matheson and Lopez at the far right in the picture below, after Boxwood's victory in the 1972 Cartier Challenge Cup in Southhampton, NY. Their other teammates were Charlie Bostwick (#5), Peter Mulligan (#4), and the late Jan Wendland (#2). The Cartier Challenge Cup was played from 1971-74, at which point the beautiful silver and gold trophy with the wooden base disappeared. There have been several sightings reported at the Racquet Club in New York City, but repeated efforts to recover the trophy have come to naught.
