Victoria will stage the climax to the Sultana Bran Hockey One League 2022 Season this weekend as the seven-round tournament reaches its climax in a fledgling competition which has made great strides this year.
The top four women’s and men’s teams will converge on Bendigo to determine this year’s Hockey One champions. The tournament has seen healthy crowds, while it has also been a visible presence on social media with high quality footage, clips and a dedicated digital show.
