North Wilts Hockey Club Summer Sixes Hockey Festival

9 July @ 9:00 am - 10 July @ 4:00 pm


The North Wilts Summer Sixes Hockey Festival is a friendly & competitive 6-a-side hockey competition with free camping held in Swindon, Wiltshire.

The 6-a-side matches are fast & fun affairs. The matches take place on a third of a pitch, using full size goals, rolling substitutes and most of the normal hockey rules.  Think of a blend of indoor hockey style, energy and pace, but played outside! Squads are a maximum of 12 players.  Matches are officiated by our own qualified umpires and are centrally timed.  This means that you can concentrate on your hockey (or other activities – as there is a fully licensed bar pitch-side).

The format of the competition is designed to make sure that all teams play as much hockey as possible.  We generally start with a league format followed by two knockout competitions, for a cup for the stronger teams, and a shield for those  who err on the side of having fun above all else!  This way all teams will get their fair share of pitch time.

All the matches are played on the sand-based astroturf pitch at Dorcan Leisure Centre in Swindon.
