Junior Tournaments 2016 Are Go!
Now in it’s third year, Billingham’s annual Junior Tournament will once again take place over two weekends this month, with the U11s and U13s in action this weekend (11th and 12th June) followed by the U15s and U18s inÂ a few weeks’ time (25th and 26th June). Ten teams will do battle over each weekend with Billingham defending two trophies… although slightly confusing as the age groups have changed since last year!
Three teams are taking part for the third year running – Solihull, Sutton and Telford – with new teams from Kilmarnock and Blackburn. Admission for each weekend is Â£10 adults, Â£5 children/OAPs â€“ 26 games of 2 x 15 minute rolling clock period actionÂ is a lot of hockey for your money!
The schedules for this coming weekend are as follows:
U15s/U18s schedules will be released in due course.
