The senior section is planning for our annual ‘Revelry’ Day, which will see most of the Men’s and Ladies Premier League Teams playing at the Wanderers Astro over the weekend of 29/30th June. All welcome to come down for a fun weekend of hockey and entertainment, see you there!

The Junior section has once again had a very busy month. The Crusaders u5-u11 tournament was held at St Stithians College on the 8th June and our players showed great skill and sportsmanship. The JSA u5-u13 tournament is taking place on Saturday 22 June at St Andrews School and Saheti School, good luck to all our Wanderers Bugs. A big thank you to the coaches and parents who continue to show support at these tournaments and are always happy to help.

The u11 Boys, u13 and Colts Friday Night League teams have been the stars of the Wanderers Hockey section this month. The girls and boys have shown dominance in all the leagues and are making us very proud. Keep it up!

Good Luck to The SA Ladies Side competing in the FIH Series Finals in Valencia, I’m sure you will make us all proud.
