Teams from the WA men's and women's Masters cohort will go head-to-head this Saturday and Sunday at the UWA Superturf against the WA Country Masters teams in a high-quality round-robin hockey tournament, exposing our Masters legends to more game time in lieu of the cancelled National Masters Championships.

Games start at 11:15am on Saturday and 9:30am on Sunday, with the day sure to be action-packed with hockey fun for all!

With such a tournament held last year, there's hope from the Masters cohort that this tradition will continue, exposing our Masters players to high-level hockey in a warm-up format before the head off to the National Masters Tournaments in years to come.

Hockey WA President Michael Henderson and former-Vic President Peter Westlund are amongst the names competing on the day, showcasing that hockey is a lifelong sport for all, with many players over the age of 70 continuing their love and passion for the game through the Masters hockey format. Learn more about Masters hockey here.

A dinner will follow the tournament on the Saturday night, with approximately 170 people in attendance.

The tournament includes 11 teams, 6 from WA and 5 from WA Country Masters, with players aged 55 to 75 competing on the day. All teams will play each other in their age group twice.

WA 55, 65, 70, & 75 will play against the same WA Country aged teams on both the Saturday and the Sunday. WA 60/1, WA 60/2 and WA Country 60 will play each other both days, with shorter playing times.

A similar set of two matches will be held at the same venue between composite teams for the Over 50s Women's State Masters players.
