Over 60s hockey in London

Six men’s over 60s hockey fixtures are being planned over over six months with all games played on Sundays at same venue each time with second round matches on the opposite surface.

The organisers are trying to recreate the old-style club atmosphere of hockey and it is definitely the partaking rather than the winning that matters most. With all games on each fixxture day played at the same venue, a healthy trunout in the clubhouse should be assured.

Any players in the London area who qualify agewise (and to a certain extent abilitywise) can apply on email to emlyn26@btinternet.com with their details and contact info. Some may want to affiliate with one of the named sides below direct.

Clubs who have intimated that they will be responsible for teams are :- Wimbledon, Surbiton and Tring. The fourth side will operate on the IPL principle and Paddy Tripp will administer initially.

Fixture dates:-

December 11th at Surbiton, Sugden Road

January 22nd at Tring, School ground and RAF Halton

February 19th at Wimbledon, King’s College School Sports Ground

March 18th at Tring

April 15th at Wimbledon
