World Cup 2016

Agreement Signed

I am delighted to announce that an agreement was signed last month with Hockey Australia to hold the 2016 Grand Masters Hockey World Cup at Newcastle, NSW in May next year.

I am therefore now able to send you an invitation to enter teams in the tournament and attach the invitation letter and team registration form. I am also sending you a letter from Stay OZ, the preferred accommodation supplier for the tournament, and an aerial photo of the Newcastle International Hockey Centre.

Peter Sweeney, chairman of the organising committee in Newcastle, will be in touch shortly with his own first newsletter giving more information on his committee's preparations for the event.

WGMA is confident that Hockey Australia and Australian Masters Hockey will give us a warm welcome next year and will provide a tournament that will be every bit as good as the last two World Cups in Oxford and The Hague - I know it is their intention to make it even better!

I look forward to receiving your registration forms before 30th June 2015.

Kind regards
