Showpiece event: Surbiton's Big Weekend

Surbiton in action Investec Women's League 2012-13

This coming weekend Surbiton Hockey Club will be hosting its Big Weekend as part of England Hockey’s series of showpiece events.

The Surrey-based club is currently one of only three in England with both its men’s and women’s first teams in the Premier Divisions. And with current internationals featuring heavily in both sides you’re sure to spot some familiar faces as the teams line-up to do battle.

Saturday 2 March - Surbiton women v University of Birmingham – 2:00pm
After getting promoted last season Surbiton's women have made an impressive mark on the Investec Premier Division. They will be eager for victory against league strugglers University of Birmingham as they push to reach the play-offs at the Investec Finals Weekend in April.

Sunday 3 March - Surbiton men v Beeston – 2:00pm
After losing some key players at the start of the season through injury and transfers Surbiton's men have done well to find themselves in the mix to reach the finals weekend. Beeston however could prove to be tough opposition as they sit comfortably atop the Premier Division with their place at Reading in April already confirmed.

Surbiton have brought in temporary seating for this showpiece event to give fans an even better match day experience and as well as the scintillating hockey on show there will be a children’s fun zone, a chance to meet Olympians and plenty of food and drink available.

Tickets on the gate: £7.50 for weekend pass, £5.00 adults, under 16’s free.
Location: Surbiton Hockey Club, Sugden Road, Long Ditton, KT7 0AE.
