Not the one played on ice – we are referring to field hockey.

Did you know that men’s field hockey has the fastest swing speed out of any sport, even golf or baseball at 103 mph.

Did you know that there are no left-handed sticks in field hockey and players must use only one side of the stick?

Field hockey is played with 10 outfield players and a goalkeeper where teams must drive a hockey ball using a hockey stick towards the opposition’s shooting circle and then into the goal. The match is won by the team that scores the most goals with matches played across different surfaces.

Are you ready to test your flick and dribble skills against other London boroughs?

For more information, please see the entry information tab.

Event information to follow shortly.
