Masters

Masters hockey is the fastest growing sector within hockey!

At just one event, the Masters European Cup in Rotterdam in August 2019, it was reported that there were 96 international teams, from 20 countries, fielding 2000 players. Wales has squads at all Masters age groups – from Over 35s to Over 60s for the Women and from Over 35s to Over 70's for the Men. The squads compete in all major tournaments each year including the Home Nations, European and World Cups.
