Men and Women
We have registered two women’s and one men’s team.
For the men’s team nomination is still open. We are looking for a GK.
Cut-off date: March 30th 2022
The 3-day event is being held at Wrenn School (London Road, Wellingborough) AstroTurf pitch on April 8th, 9th, and 10th, 2022.
You are doubtless aware that Ancients are men over 75 years old and ladies of 65+, while Aspirants are expected to be about 70 and 60 respectively, who aspire to still be playing when they become Ancients.
The tournament is for teams of 7-a-side on a half pitch. Normal Hockey rules apply, and the halfway line replaces the 23m line for free hits and long corners. Roll-on, roll-off substitutions apply, and teams can choose to use 7 outfield players or to use a 'keeper.
Games are 2 x 20-minute halves, and each team will normally play 2 games on each of the 3 days.
Light refreshments will be available
