The Meaning of the word "Gentleman"


A "gentleman" is welcoming of ladies who would like to play bicycle polo
Gentlemen are mindful of safety when swinging their whackers
Gentlemen take the whole world as their cycle lane, though in a way that never causes offense
Gentlemen choose commanding attire when it is their week to umpire
Gentlemen arrive at 2 for a 2 o'clock start
It is the gentlemanly manner with which it is played here, that makes bicycle polo unique in this city, not at all the cult-like affair it has become in such frightfully crude cities as Sydney.
Ladies and gentlemen, I shall look forward to seeing you all Sunday at 2, at Centennial Park. Drinks after and as always, whackers provided.
