Lee Valley Hockey & Tennis Centre
For the third year in a row the Men’s 1s have qualified for the League Finals, with a best ever finish in the Premier League. Last season we lost out to Surbiton in the final on sudden death penalty shuttles, so this year the boys will be looking to go one better and bring the championship back to Maida Vale and a spot in the EHL next season.
AND for the second season in a row our Ladies’ 1s have won the East Conference, qualifying for the Premier League Promotion Play-Offs – but this year they are also at Lee Valley (2 out of the 3 games at least…)! So it will be an epic weekend of HWHC action, with at least three games to watch and cheer us on!
Tickets can be purchased here – and unlike everything else in the world – ARE CHEAPER THAN LAST YEAR!
Tickets are unreserved, but we’ll advertise a big area of seating on the day where we can gather en masse. We think most will be uncovered, but feel free to splash out on covered if you don’t want to gamble on a sunny April day!
The boys take on Beeston at 13:15 in the semi-final after Surbiton face East Grinstead.
11:00 Surbiton v EG
13:15 HWHC v Beeston
A win on Saturday puts us back in the final which is 13:45 on Sunday
