Friday 4th August to Sunday 6th August 2017

This years theme – HEROES AND VILLANS

We pride ourselves on arranging one of the friendliest and funniest hockey festivals in the UK. The festival is organised and run by seasoned tour veterans, between us we’ve been on an ungodly amount of them so it’s given us an insight into what you might want out of a sunny weekend of hockey shenanigans in August

Games are mainly on the Saturday with final group games and playoffs on Sunday.

Our festival is about fun and meeting awesome people. We have made friends throughout the country through putting this festival on, it brings us great joy to hear how much they enjoy our festival and drives us to make it better each year for you.

Key points;

  • MIXED 7-a-side hockey on both Grass and Astro
  • £160 entry for a team of ten
  • Camping on site included in entry price at our beautiful wooded location overlooked by the viaduct
  • Fancy dress Saturday night in the Lockwood Park clubhouse
  • DJ each night and maybe a bit of Kareoke
  • Competitions for fancy dress (individuals and teams)

Rules

  • 7-a-side half pitch. Mixture of Grass and Astro
  • There must be a minimum of three female outfielders on the pitch at all times during games
  • Keepers may be female or male, if you are not playing a keeper then kicking backs are not allowed for safety reasons
  • No abuse of umpires, or aggressive behaviour to anyone will be tolerated, if you act in that manner then you’re in the wrong place and you will be asked to leave.
  • Long corners are placed at a distance the umpire decides is ok
  • 5 metre rule as per usual
  • Defensive shorts: 5 defenders back (Inc. Keeper), 2 players must be stood in the other ‘D’
  • Reverse stick shots only allowed within reason and only if you can accurately place the ball on the ground. [Do not smash it because you think it looks cool, it doesn’t and everyone will think you are a prick]
  • No trying to volley the ball in the air [See above]
  • No drinks on the pitch
  • Every team has that one lad who’s thinks he’s amazing. Gently remind them that they aren’t and no one cares
  • Players must wear personal protective equipment during games; it is your own responsibility to wear it. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
  • Try to find the right level of tour hockey with your opponents; don’t be that team who’s trying too hard and don’t be that team who doesn’t try at all
  • Please turn up to all matches; your opponents and umpire have made the effort to get there. We’ve built the schedule to allow plenty of time for mischief between games
  • The most important rule is to be happy, make friends with your opposition and have fun!!!
