The highlight of the season for many a player is the yearly trip to put all we’ve learned to the test, see our pals from other international teams again, and generally act the goat for five days. (Not to mention our impressive medal hauls!)
In previous years the club has travelled to Rotterdam, Antwerp, London, Stockholm and Berlin in our quest for craic. This year, we’re headed to party capital, Amsterdam!
The Amsterdam PinkHockey Fest will run from Wednesday August 9th to Saturday August 13th at the HC Athena hockey grounds (which comes complete with a slide from the changing rooms to the pitch!) and we have all the details on registration right here for you.
The registration fee is €90 if you purchase it before April 1st, and €105 if you purchase it after April 1st. Your registration covers your entry into the competition, along with the following events:
- Wednesday 9th: Meet and Greet party in the evening
- Thursday 10th: Matches begin (lunch provided)
- Friday 11th: Matches continue (lunch provided), followed by a BBQ at the hockey club
- Saturday 12th: Finals played (lunch provided), followed by a closing party
To register or for more information, head over to Pink Hockey Amsterdam’s website.
Your committee have secured very reasonably priced accommodation just a few minutes walk from the hockey pitch, and will be in touch at a later point to update you on that. Flights should be booked for whatever dates suit you best, but we recommend flying out on the morning/afternoon of Wednesday 9th at the latest, to allow you time to get to the Meet and Greet… and flying back whenever your hangover permits on Sunday 13th/Monday 14th!
