Summer Social League
Following the success of our seven week summer social hockey programme, we are aiming to run a social league for five weeks during August and September. We are hoping that this will act as a sort of pre-season for the members of our club in the weeks prior to the season starting in mid-September.
About the league
The league will consist of as many teams as we can get together from those interested. All matches will be played at Havelock Park on Thursday evenings from 6:45 to 8:45 (depending on the number of teams and the required schedule). The aim is that each team will play 2 matches per evening for the first four weeks with the fifth week being Finals Night.
Matches will be played on 1/2 a pitch, 12mins each half, with normal hockey rules applying except for the following:
- No hitting
- No aerials
- Long corners will be taken from the sideline
Teams of 8 will be randomly selected from those interested and will consist of a mix of Men, Ladies and Juniors. 6 of the 8 players will be on the pitch at any time. Hopefully this will allow for a team member who is not available on a particular evening.
A charge of £1 per person per week will apply. A designated team captain will collect this.
If you are interested in taking part in the league please email or text your name, age, mobile phone number and the level you played at last year (i.e.: mens 3’s, Ladies 4’s or under-13 girls) to Paddy Grimes (firstname.lastname@example.org or 07595177421).
All those interested should contact Paddy on or before 1 August 2015. The league will start on Thursday 6 August 2015. A full team listing and schedule will be posted here on the evening of 2 August 2015.
