Inaugural Hockey Festival proves to be huge success

More than 200 girls took part in the first ever Newcastle Schools Hockey Festival, which proved to be a huge success.

18 teams from around the region entered the tournament, 10 in the U13 category and 8 in the U14 category, in the hope of winning some silverware. 

Each team played a minimum of five matches across the day and having received such praise in its initial year, the hope is to make the festival an annual competition.
