Summer League

Summer League 2019 will run from Saturday 18 May to Saturday 20 July inclusive.

Depending on numbers, games might be 1115 / 1230 / 1400 / 1530

For those that have signed up for the Holcombe Summer League, the teams and the schedule of play will be sent to captains, unsurprisingly each year summer league becomes more popular, so captains will be in contact regarding team selection for each week.

The teams can be downloaded here (soon).

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.

A BBQ and Presentation will take place after the final match on Saturday 20 July, everyone is welcome.

Really look forward to seeing you all over the summer. Please contact us if you have any queries - constructive feedback is always welcome.

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