Venue: Clifton College Sports Ground

Ryan’s Hockey Tournament was our first-ever event in May 2010 and we are delighted to have it back on the annual calendar after the restrictions of COVID prevented it from taking place in 2020 & 2021. Hundreds of players of all ages and abilities in fancy dress have taken part over the years and we are delighted to share feedback from a kind supporter:

“Your annual hockey tournament is just fantastic! It brings together clubs and schools from all over the area and players of all ages. A true community event….. and great fun to boot!”

This is exactly what we always hoped the event would be and we know that Ryan would have loved it too.

The idea, like always, is for a fun hockey tournament for ALL ages and abilities, a BBQ, raffle, hopefully some sun: a great way to pay tribute to Ryan and support our cause – which essentially is to stop other amazing lives being lost to meningitis. Mixed teams of minimum 6 a-side with at least 2 girls or 2 boys – there is no maximum number of players in a team. We’d love to hear from you with your team name and the age of the players if Under 16.

lily owsley: GB hockey

GB forward Lily Owsley always tries to take part if her hectic hockey schedule allows. Fingers crossed she may be free again this year and will bring her Tokyo 2020 Bronze Medal!

Entry is £10 per player which also includes your BBQ lunch. We also have a cake sale and a raffle with some amazing prizes! Register your team before 30th April 22 & one player gets free entry!  

There will be a prize for the best fancy dress again – this has been brilliant every year and we look forward to seeing some of the interesting creations and themes that just get better year on year!!

The day wouldn’t be possible without some umpires! We would love to hear from you if you could spare an hour or two. The rules are pretty basic and just a decent hockey knowledge is required – and a loud whistle! We will feed and water you and be extremely grateful ….forever!

If hockey isn’t your thing, just come along and join in the fun. There’s a BBQ, cakes, music and always lots of fun and laughter.

We’d love to see old faces, new faces & smiley faces – the more the merrier! Thanks as always for your support and please contact Michelle (michellebres@btinternet.com) if you have any questions, would like to enter a team or help out on the day. So much good has been achieved from this event over the years and we are excited for this to continue in 2022.
