As part of our 60th anniversary celebrations the Gibraltar Hockey Association committee will be starting our season with a social 6-a-side tournament for both men and ladies, which will be played This tournament will be held throughout the whole day. The idea of the tournament is to celebrate our 60th anniversary with both present and past players, as well as people who may have an interest in the sport, in a social and friendly atmosphere with the aim to attract more people to play socially.
This is the first of many events which will be held throughout the season as part of our celebrations.
The tournament will be an open tournament (no need to be a member of the GHA), although current teams have been encouraged to enter a couple of teams. The feedback from both members and non members (some retired players and supporters of local hockey) has been very positive and a good number of teams are expected.
Teams should have a minimum of 5 players (goal keepers will be present and can play for any team they wish) and there will be a £10 entrance fee per team, payable on the day, which would go to charity (Cancer). Players should be over 12 years of age. Further rules and fixtures will be available on the day.
