Following last year’s full house of 40 teams I hope enthusiasm levels for our end of season club tournament remains as strong as ever and we will have another fully subscribed weekend. A Royal Wedding and extended Bank Holiday weekend purely being a sideshow to the main event…..Magpies end of season hockey celebration. This year our running order is as follows:
Saturday 30th April : Open Mixed Challenge
Round robin matches start at 10.30am leading to the knock out plate and cup competitions early afternoon. A maximum playing squad of 16 is permitted with 5 male outfield players on the pitch at any one time. You will be sure to get at least 5 matches of hockey, 20 minutes one way. No age limits apply but it is recommended that all members of your squad have or do play regular league hockey. Umpires will be provided by HMHC but any help offered on this front is greatly appreciated.

20 teams can be accommodated in this event.
Monday 2nd May : Ladies & Mens Club XI Tournament
Round robin matches start at 10.30am leading to the knock out plate and cup competitions early afternoon. A maximum playing squad of 16 is permitted and you will be sure to get at least 5 matches of hockey, 20 minutes one way.
No age limits apply but it is recommended that all members of your squad have or do play regular league hockey and we encourage all teams to enter into the spirit of a Club XI tournament by fielding players of an appropriate standard. In the ladies event players starred for Norfolk/Suffolk Premier standard are not permitted within squads and in the mens event regular East Division 2N or 2S standard players or above are discouraged from selection. Umpires will be provided by HMHC but any help offered on this front is greatly appreciated.

10 teams can be accommodated per competition.
As one of the last remaining East Anglian hockey tournaments, established in 1989, I hope you will continue to support us and keep this event alive.
