Sevens will kick-start new season
HOCKEY returns to Queen's Park this weekend with six teams playing in the annual Condamine Sports Club Sevens.
The mixed competition has been held for the past three years, and Warwick Hockey Association officials decided to go ahead with the tournament on grass despite the loss of the synthetic surface in the two floods.
Organiser Phil Rolfe said two teams would travel from the Sunshine Coast and one from the Red Lions club in Toowoomba.
“We have three teams from Warwick, Saints, Wyverns and Harlequins,” Rolfe said.
“Harlequins will be boosted by some players from the Gold Coast.”
All games will be played on the northern grass field.
Rolfe said the southern field had been top-dressed with sand to make the surface more level for the start of Warwick fixtures.
The Warwick teams are organised by Gary Millard (Wyverns), Steve Farrell (Saints) and Harlequins (Sheryl Windle).
Any Warwick players, aged 40 and over, keen to play are welcome at the grounds on Saturday from 8am. The Sevens dinner is on Saturday night at the Condamine Sports Club.
The hockey association holds its senior sign-on this weekend.
Players interested in men's and ladies' A-grade and mixed reserve-grade competitions are welcome to sign on from 10am Saturday or Sunday at the hockey grounds. More information from Rolfe on 0403402594.
