Summer League

Our Summer League team is adjusting our Summer League Programme and is planning a number of 'Summer League Days' for when we hopefully resume after 30 June (based on England Hockey's domestic activity suspension). The 'Summer League Days' are currently scheduled for 11 & 25 July and 8 & 15 August, where members can come together and play a small-sided tournament in selected teams during the course of the day (a few hours) - similar to our Club Day. If this interests you, even just for one day, please do continue to sign up for our Summer League in the usual way and Emma & David will keep in touch with you.


Summer League 2020 will run from Saturday 9 May to Saturday 11 July inclusive. Sign up here or use the below QR code.

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). Holcombe Juniors are welcome to play, but must be 13 yrs +.

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 11 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)
