Munster Mini Olympics

We are all aware of the fundraising drive behind the Irish men at this stage and we in Munster Hockey want to do our part…but we need everyone’s help. On the 28th of May we will be hosting a Mini Olympic Hockey Tournament in Garryduff for all Munster players aged 16 and over to participate in. This will be a fun blitz for men and women of all abilities to take part in. Teams will be assigned as per the countries that have qualified for the Olympics. Everyone is welcome to play.

Here’s how its going to work (subject to minor adjustment):
– €20 entry fee from each player goes to the Irish men’s Rio fund;
– Everyone will be assigned a Country in the Olympics;
– 1/3 pitches games;
– 7 a side games of 15-20 minutes;
– No keepers or kicking backs (scoring area marked off);
– 5 group games before quarters, semis and final.

This is a great opportunity to support the Green Machine, get to meet other players in Munster and get a buzz going for the upcoming Olympics. We will also arrange a social night to top the day off – details to be announced closer to the time.

This event will only go ahead if we get sufficient numbers so please sign up fast. The closing date is the 21st of May so register fast to avoid disappointment. If you have any questions just contact
