There are a number of competitions available to women’s clubs affiliated to England Hockey. These take place throughout the season on designated Sundays with teams drawn either home or away. They culminate in a finals day when a number of finals are all held at one venue. The major competitions are sponsored by Investec.
At the top level is the Investec Women’s Cup. This is open to all affiliated clubs and offers the smallest clubs in the country the opportunity for giant killing against the top teams from the Investec Women’s Hockey League.
The Investec Women’s Trophy and Investec Women’s Vase competitions offer the opportunity for 1st XIs outside of the Investec Women’s Hockey League and the Premier Divisions of the five Regional Leagues to play against teams of a similar level to themselves. The Trophy is for 1st XI teams higher up the hockey “league pyramid”, the Vase for smaller clubs.
There are also competitions for club 2nd XIs in the 2nd XI Cup & Plate.
