Torbay Easter Hockey Festival
Friday 25th March - Monday 28th March 2016
Now in our 66th Year
Torbay Easter Hockey Festival is celebrating it's 66th Anniversary in 2016 , and continues with the generous support of Torbay Council. We welcome hockey players both old and new to join together in this splendid scenic location to make this a very memorable event for everyone. We look forward to teams who have been the stalwarts of the festival once more returning this year to battle against old rivals. We welcome new teams who we hope will challenge the old and engage their opposition with skill and determination. Our focus has always been on excellent competitive hockey played with true sportsmanship. All games are played on astro pitches with all facilities.

The Festival runs throughout the Easter holiday with fixtures arranged against both local and touring sides.
Each team plays up to 7 games over the 4 days on excellent astro-turf pitches situated in and around Torbay.
We encourage teams to bring their families as the location is ideal for a combined family/sporting holiday. Teams can enjoy their own entertainment as well as visiting the Festival Headquarters at the Redcliffe Hotel, Paignton, the social centre of the Festival, situated right on the sea front.
The Festival Committee encourages Club sides of a good standard as well as teams of mixed abilities with the emphasis being on hockey played in true Festival spirit.
