64th Torbay Hockey Festival

64th Torbay Hockey Festival

On Friday 18th March the 64th Annual Torbay Hockey Festival will commence with 15 teams taking part from around the country over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

The Festival was set up to provide a weekend of enjoyment for Hockey Players back in 1950 and this weekend we still see clubs coming back to the bay that attended that first event.

This years festival, will be the first after the passing of the committees past president, the late John Grundy. Although John will not be with us in person, we are sure he will be there in mind, current President Nicole Amil told Sport South Devon.

The match will take place over three venues. Clennon Valley in Paignton, Torquay Girls Grammar School and Dawlish Hockey Pitch at Sandy Lane Leisure Centre. The headquarters for the festival, as usual, will be hosted by the Redcliffe Hotel in Paignton.

Matches start at 10am on each of the three days and the games will be concluded by 4.45pm on Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Easter Monday sees an earlier finishes of 1pm.

During the 4 day event, the teams will play for two overall trophies. The first is for the Most Goals Scored and the second is for the Fair Play award.
