It is with regret that JDR sports can no longer sponsor the 5 Counties Women's Hockey league as they are no longer associated with Zoo Sports so cannot continue with Teamwear. We thank JDR for their support of 5 Counties Hockey and wish them well for the future. They will still be supplying Proskins.
Stevenage HC 7-a-side Grass Tournament 23rd March 2014
Stevenage Hockey Club
Sunday 23rd March
Annual Grass Tournament
As some of you may know Stevenage Hockey Club every year run a well-attended
Ladies 7 a-side Grass Tournament around the end of every season, this year is no different! We will be holding this event on Sunday 23rd March.
The tournament is a great way to end the season, for those of you who have not entered in the past or in a the last few years, a quick rundown;
The Ladies Tournament has been running for over 10 years with Stevenage HC playing host to teams from around the region. The tournament is aimed at teams & players that would normally play within the 5 Counties level. Last year we had a great turn out with over 12 local club teams taking part.
The games are played on reduced size grass pitches at our Ditchmore Lane Ground (which is where our clubhouse is in Stevenage Old Town) with teams competing throughout the day for a place in the afternoon finals.
Matches will be around 20 minutes one-way, with the first matches at 10.30am, finals played around 3:30pm and then a short presentation & prize giving where the voted for Fair Play award and runners-up and 2014 Winners are announced and presented with their Trophy. Timings & schedule are dependent on number of entries.
Hot and cold refreshments are available throughout the day; shower & changing facilities are available in the clubhouse and our bar will be open during the tournament.
You are of course welcome to bring any guests/family along to support and enjoy the day!
Entry to the tournament is on a first come, first served basis and the cost per team is £35 you may (as some clubs do) enter more than one team if you wish.
Level of play – the tournament is aimed at all those that play in 5 counties – all divs - everyone is welcome – we all know what a great leveller grass is! We have players from 5C Prem to Div 6 playing.
I hope you will be able to join us for what is always great day of friendly yet competitive hockey (whatever the weather!).
We want to bring a team - what do I need to do?
Firstly you need to email Nicki and tell her you want to bring a team(s) and send her the completed entry form first - come first served.
