9th Grand Masters Hockey World Cup
Barcelona 2018 is over - Netherlands are men’s 60+ World Champions, England World Champions at 65+ and 70+ and Australia retain their 75+ title. England’s women’s 60+ take the World crown from previous holders New Zealand, who chose not to contest the title that they won in Australia in 2016, and England 65+ are unchallenged winners of the first women’s 65+ age group. Over 1200 players, 18 countries and 77 teams took part in the biggest ever Grand Masters Hockey World Cup which was hosted by Real Club de Polo Barcelona. 241 matches were played in 10 days of competition and thanks to some excellent work by the host club and tournament officials the schedule ran to time throughout the tournament. Club de Polo provided three of the tournament pitches and the fourth was made available by Castelldefels HC - approx 45 minutes away on the coast.
The Tournament Trophy again allowed an opportunity for those not selected for the national sides to enjoy this international event and was contested at all age groups - the men’s winners being Southern Cross (Australia) at 60+ and 75+ with LX Club (England) winning at 65+ and 70+. LX Ladies (England) won the women’s 60+ section and Alliance women won the club's first-ever gold medal at 65+.
