Where and when our finals events will take place this year!

Surbiton Celebrate
In December we announced the exciting news that the two pitches at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre will be replaced with brand new surfaces for the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup in 2018.

Work on the new pitches will start in the first week of March, just after the Investec Schools Championships for Girls. 

The main stadium pitch will be replaced first and is due for completion in mid April. Work on the second pitch will start in mid April and the target for this to be completed is the end of May.

The £600,000 investment provides two Poligras Platinum World Cup pitches which will give widespread benefits to the hockey community. The new pitches will be enjoyed by England and Great Britain’s national and development squads as well as the many regular local university, school and hockey clubs that play at the venue.  

In addition they will of course be used for England Hockey’s domestic Championships although this year, with only one pitch being available, we have had to make changes to previously used schedules. 

We have endeavoured to maximise use of the stadium pitch at the venue once it is completed but it is not possible to host all matches on the scheduled dates at the venue and there are some changes. 

As only the second pitch at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre scheduled to available the Girls and Boys U16 Tier 1 Club Championships  on 7-8 April will be held at Nottingham Hockey Centre.

With the main pitch due to be completed in mid April the finals of the Notts Sport Schools Championships for Boys will be held at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre but with a revised schedule. The Under 14 tournament will be held on Monday 23 April, the U16s on Tuesday 24 & Wednesday 25 April. 

The U18 Tier 1 and Tier 2 finals and 3/4 matches will be played on Thursday 26 April, the semi finals of these competitions will be held the day beforehand at Old Loughtonians Hockey Club.     

The Men’s and Investec Women’s League finals, featuring the top four teams in each Premier Division playing off in semi finals and then finals to be crowned league champions will be played at Lee Valley and Tennis Centre on 28-29 April.

With only one pitch available it is not possible to incorporate the Men’s and Investec Women’s League play-offs featuring the three Conference winners and the ninth placed Premier Division team playing of for two Premier Division places in 2018-19. This tournament will conclude at University of Birmingham on the same weekend; the first round of matches having been held at Nottingham the Sunday beforehand, 22 April.

The May Bank Holiday weekend, 5-7 May, has become a feature in hockey clubs’ calendar and will feature the majority of the Adult and Masters Championships finals. Due to the high number of games some Masters T2 finals will be played in conjunction with other events as detailed below.

The following weekend, Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 May sees the conclusion of the U14 Tier 1 and U18 Tier 1 and Tier 2 Championships.   The Girls and Boys U18 finals will be held at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre on the Saturday along with the four classification games in the Boys U14s Championships.

Earlier in the day the U14s pool games will be held at Old Loughtonians. On the Sunday the Girls U14s will be run with all games at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre.
