Slangevar Bitches! Meet Gavitron. This force of unyielding court presence turned up at Melbournes dirty Northcote polo court a year ago, and brought a much needed realness to MHCP. With his ‘shut the f$%k up and play polo’ attitude and Sean Connery ruggedly handsome good looks, it’s hard to say that Melbournes flaky hipsters haven’t looked a little superfluous on the scene. But let’s be honest, the days of whining like a panty sniffer that your functionally challenged orange Bianchi track bike got scratched at polo should be a thing of the past. Harden up, or Gavitron will compassionately do it for you… and you’ll thank him afterwards cause he’s such a nice guy. Here’s a little more about Gavin.
