MASTERS HOCKEY – MEN
Ulster Masters are currently recruiting for interpros this season and would encourage anyone over the age of 40 to get involved.
Masters Hockey has grown massively in the last 7 years with Ireland attending World Cups in Hong Kong, Singapore, London and Rotterdam last year and the European Cup was held at Lisnagarvey two years ago and Ireland play in the annual Home Nations events.
Simply, Masters has encouraged those looking at retirement and those already in retirement to continue playing hockey past the age of 40. As it has grown, we have introduced the Masters Inter-pros in April. This annual event is in its 4th year and Ulster are hosting the 2015 tournament at Lisnagarvey Hockey Club, 17 – 19th April.
This will involve teams at the Ov40s, 0v45s and Ov50s age groups from Munster, Leinster and Ulster in both Mens and Ladies and will also see teams from Connacht and the Exiles competing.
Anyone interested in trying out for the Men’s Ulster Masters in the above age groups should contact Jamie Millar at firstname.lastname@example.org. The age ruling is if you are 40, 45 or 50 in the year of the tournament you are eligible to play in that age group e.g. DOB 31.12.65 would see eligibility for the Ov50s.
