If you haven’t done so already, there’s still time to start your Road to Lee Valley by entering our knockout competitions.

The entry deadline for Trophy, Vase and 2nd XI Competitions has been extended to 8 September meaning you haven’t got long to get your entry in!

Many teams have already tasted the glory of triumphing on a sunny day at our home of hockey and there’s no feeling like it. What could be better than getting your hands on some silverware on the same pitch graced by the likes Alex Danson, Maddie Hinch, Ashley Jackson and Sam Ward?

There’s also still time to enter our various Masters and Junior Competitions. Everything you need to know, including our easy online entry system is here.

The draws for the Men’s Cup and Investec Women’s Cup First Round have already been made, throwing up some interesting clashes.

Men’s Cup holders Beeston start the defence of their title with a tough assignment at home to a University of Birmingham side bursting with rising stars. Beaten finalists Chichester will go to Premier Division outfit Hampstead and Westminster- one of their high profile scalps en route to last year’s final. Bowdon vs Didsbury Northern should be a superb battle whilst Trophy holders Guernsey take the trip to 2015 cup winners Reading.

In the Investec Women’s Cup, holders Clifton Robinsons start their defence with a matchup against Bristol Firebrands. 2016 runners-up Buckingham have a bye. Bowdon Hightown vs Brooklands Poynton promises to be a keenly contested battle whilst Bedford will hope to claim the high-profile scalp of Investec Women’s Premier Division outfit University of Birmingham.     

It promises to be a gruelling and exciting #RoadtoLeeValley, make sure you don't miss out on your chance to get there!
