Torbay Easter Hockey Festival is celebrating it's 70th Anniversary in 2020 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 whom 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 revolves around our Festival Headquarters - The Redcliffe Hotel, Paignton which is one of the most prestigious hotels in Torbay - the hotel offers a warm welcome to all participating hockey players and their families. This includes beer at discounted prices and excellent hot food which will be available all day every day as will the use of the Grand Terrace overlooking the bay and a glorious sandy beach.
Come and join us in 2019 and compete in this friendly Festival of hockey against Club sides from all over the UK played in one of the most beautiful parts of Great Britain, the English Riveria.

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.
