Pools. Teams, which must be of single gender, will be organised into pools in each section, each pool comprising of up to 9 teams.
We are also intending to run Men’s and Ladies Vets Pools, separate from the main tournament, subject to demand, so please do let us know if you would like to enter.

Entertainment. Due to last year’s highly appreciated discount voucher, we shall again be offering a 50% off voucher up to the value of a jug (so if a Jug is £30 you will only have to pay £15). You will be able to claim this reward after your last scheduled game on the Saturday in the sportsman’s bar ONLY. The committee and umpires will be around to socialise with you and get feedback and ideas for “your” tournament next year. This voucher is subject to change or clarification at any time by Tullett Islanders.

We also have some links on our Web Site that may help you.

Insurance. ALL participants should ensure that they are properly insured against third party risks and properly registered to a recognised club.

It is with regret that we share the sad news that our President Pete Atkins passed away suddenly on Boxing Day from a heart attack. We also learnt a few days later of the passing of our ex-president John Gawley MBE. A huge loss to the hockey family and the committee will be discussing how we can celebrate Pete and John’s contribution to hockey in an appropriate manner over the weekend.

Please return your entry forms by the 23rd April 2018.

5th FebCat.d) "Minor Offence" Red Cards - further advice from Hampshire CDA

Umpires are advised that for the second yellow-card offence to justify the showing of a Cat.d) "Minor Offence" Red Card it MUST be "the same" (the wording of the Regulation 6.3) or "duplicate" (the wording on the Red Card Report Form) as the first yellow-card offence. Whilst the effect or intention may be to break down play, there is no definition, or offence, of "break down" in the Rules of Hockey, so that alone cannot justify the combination required to trigger the Red Card.- for the second of two dissimilar 'break-down' offences either a longer yellow card, or a Cat.a) Red Card with its 16 days' Mandatory Minimum suspension should be shown.

3rd JanHHA Council Non-Portfolio Member Positions Vacant

Following the resignation of two Non-Portfolio HHA Council members, one due to moving away from the area, and the other due to increased external commitments, there are vacancies for their replacements as of immediate effect.

Although a non-portfolio member has no specific responsibility, they are expected to attend bi-monthly HHA council meetings held on Mondays in Southampton, as well as the HHA AGM, and are free to contribute at them both. Candidates for the positions should ideally have a working knowledge of Hampshire Hockey, and hold an office of responsibility within their respective clubs, although anyone wishing to take on the role will be considered. Anyone contemplating taking on a position within the HHA Council in the future is encouraged to apply, but again this is not a requirement and will not be seen as an obligation to take on such a role at a later date.

Contact HHA Secretary, John Thompson (secretary@hampshireha.co.uk) for further details if interested.

NOTE: All HHA Council members are subject to re-election at the AGM.
