Adult Championships

The Adult Championships offer the opportunity of further competitive games via a cup run. Aimed at Men’s, Women’s and Mixed teams of all abilities there really is a competition for everyone in the Adult Championships. The Championships details document in the Related links & documents section provides more detail on each specific competition.

Men's and Women's Championships

The Men's and Women's Championships offer four different tiers. These are designed to level the playing field and give all teams up and down the country the potential to reach a national final - regardless of whether you represent your club’s 1st, 2nd, 5th or 8th XI!

This knockout competition starts off regionally, but the pool of potential opponents widens the further you progress. It gives you the opportunity to come up against different teams of a similar ability level, which is determined by your league/division status. To find out which Tier your team is eligible for check out the Matrix of Leagues under the Related Links & Documents section.

Mixed Championships

The Mixed Championships are our most popular competition with over 150 entries in each of the last three seasons. Its social nature makes it very inclusive and great fun, with the competitive element tending to be a bit more relaxed.

Clubs can enter as many sides as they like in this competition and all participants get a second chance. If you lose your first match in Tier 1 you get another game in the Tier 2 plate competition.

Dates

The competition dates for 2020/21 are available to view and download in the Related Links & Documents section.

The entry system closes on Monday 21 September for all Adult Championships. The competitions department will be in touch shortly after this time with further details of the competitions, including the much anticipated draws.

Adult Championships Tiers 1-4: £66.00

***2020/21 in light of Covid-19***

We are hopeful of delivering an England Hockey Championships programme for the 2020/21 season. At present we are planning to operate a full suite of Championships over the course of a normal season, without disruption. However, it is carefully being monitored and managed as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. We will continue to relate to England Hockey's Return to Play Roadmap to determine when exactly competitive hockey can resume.

It may still be possible that some of the Championships have to be tweaked or altered slightly in order to comply with our policies on returning to play, however, we are doing our best to avoid this and have set out the following to support clubs in participating;

Entry fee price freeze - entry fees the same as last season, no inflation or increase on last years fees!

Enter now, pay & play later - no obligation to pay entry fees until it is confirmed the competitions will be going ahead!

First come, first served - enter early to avoid disappointment! If entries have to be limited to support reformatting of competitions, this will be done on a first come first served basis!

It is important to us that we support our clubs, and hope that in return, clubs will continue to support these alternative competitions. Without your entries these competitions will not be feasible, so we ask that you, like us, continue to plan for a regular season and enter the Championships as early as possible.
