After huge success in the first year with Wycombe claiming the title, the event is back and just following feedback (and recent cold weather) will take place after the end of the league season.
The tournament will take start at 11:00am and run all day till around 4pm and we are hoping to attract between 8-12 teams where each club will play a minimum of 4 x 30-minute games. (The full fixtures schedule will be published closer to the event)
Location: Bedford Hockey Club, Chester Road, Queens Park, Bedford MK40 4HL where we have a double astro, changing rooms as well as somewhere to buy tea, coffee and snacks.
The tournament is mixed (11 a-side) competition with teams to comprise of 5 outfield girls, 5 outfield boys and a goalie (plus subs).
We hope to source local umpires for the tournament although clubs are welcome to bring their own and there will be prizes for the winners. Like in 2017, it should be a nice send off for those in the upper 6th leaving for university with the timing such that it doesn’t impact on exams.
The cost to enter is £100 per team (with cheques made payable to Bedford Hockey Club or you can make a BACS payment). Please email BHC Ladies Club Captain Kate Costin firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 07513 025712 if your club would like to participate (or two).
NB- If you have some initial interest from players but not a full team, please also inform us as we may be able to group you together with another team. We look forward to a fantastic day of hockey on the 5th May. www.bedfordhockeyclub.com
