Summer League 2019

Summer League 2019 will run from Saturday 18 May to Saturday 20 July inclusive.  A BBQ and Presentation will take place after the final match on Saturday 20 July.

If you wish to register to take part, please sign up here. Deadline for registration is Friday 3 May. Remember you must be at least 13 years old (no exceptions).

Matches may be played at 1115 / 1230 / 1400 / 1530 each Saturday dependant upon number of teams, with a rotating roster of goalkeepers. Team selection will take place between 4-11 May, and those registered will hear from your captain thereafter.

Match fees will be £7 for adults, £4 for Juniors (U18 and in full-time education).

The additional rules will continue to be followed, implemented in order to protect our younger players, which are as follows:

  • ‘A’ Band players are not permitted to take part in offensive penalty corners, but can take part in defensive penalty corners.  They must stand outside the 25 yard line during the offensive penalty corner.
  • Drag flicking, “LBZ’s” and reverse hits are banned. The umpire’s decision in these instances is final.
  • A reverse sweep is different to an LBZ, where the stick remains in contact with the floor prior to hitting the ball, and the ball remains in contact with the floor once hit. This is allowed. The umpire’s decision in these instances is final.

We very much welcome your support once again.

Many thanks David Walker and Emma Simpson-Duke (Summer League Co-ordinators)
