British Unicycle Hockey League: London, 9th June

On the 9th June, the Lunis will be hosting another hockey tournament. This will be the first tournament of this year’s British hockey league and will be primarily for organised teams only but let me know if you are inteested in forming part of a scratch team.

The court is booked from 12 noon ‘till 7pm. As things stand we can only accommodate 8 (or at maximum 10) teams over the seven hours.

The hockey will be strictly 5-a-side. Teams may have any number of subs if they so wish and rotate their players during the day.

Note: please ensure that you use plastic pedals and NOT metal ones.

The cost per team (regardless of numbers) will be £20.

This event will be held at…

Westway Sports Centre
1 Crowthorne Road
London

It’s outside, but underneath the A40 flyover so you don’t get too wet when it rains. The surface is smooth Tarmac, it’s a bit abrasive on sticks, but OK to play on and great for fast turns!

If anyone would like to stop over on the Saturday night, then you’re more than welcome to. Floor space will be at a premium. so if you’d like to stop over then it’s essential that you let me know ASAP.

Register you team name to confirm a place in this hockey tournament by emailing me, Rocket, at:

We appreciate that many of you are travelling long distances for this tournament, but because of the time slot and the number of teams attending, it’s imperative that everyone arrives no later than 11.30am for a 12 noon start. Registration fees will be collected on arrival.

See you all there.

Directions to the Westway by car are below,

To get to Westway Sports Centre by car from the north or west

Approach along the Westway (A40). Take the exit marked Hammersmith & Shepherds Bush (A3220). The road comes down to Holland Park Roundabout, a very large one with a central glass tower. Take the first exit signed Central London. Immediately turn left into Royal Crescent and immediately left again into St Ann’s Villas. Continue, bearing very slightly right at the junction before the railway bridge (the road is now called Bramley Road). Drive under the railway bridge to the flyover bridge ahead. Drive under the flyover bridge and immediately turn left into Crowthorne Road - the car park entrance ramp is then immediately in front of you, the car parking is in the Centre’s own underground car park (below the full-size football pitch).

To get to Westway Sports Centre by car from the south

Approach on the one-way system that comes past the Earl’s Court Exhibition Centre (Warwick Road) - follow the system up Holland Road to the major roundabout (Holland Park Roundabout) with a central glass tower. Take the third exit signed Notting Hill Gate (A402). As you drive round the roundabout ensure that you are in the left lane at the point where you leave it, because you need to turn left almost immediately; turn left into Royal Crescent and immediately left again into St Ann’s Villas. Continue up this road, bearing slightly right at the junction before the railway bridge (the road is now called Bramley Road). Drive under the railway bridge to the motorway bridge ahead. Drive under the motorway bridge and immediately turn left into Crowthorne Road - the car park entrance ramp is then immediately in front of you, the car parking is in the Centre’s own underground car park (below the full-size football pitch).

Attended last year (2008) as a spectator and had a blast. Traveling to London again later this year so would love to try to catch another game. Anyone have the 2009 schedule?


I :slight_smile: London

Saturday 23rd May is 2009’s LUni tournament and it will be in Hackney, not at the Westway. There is the possibility of a scratch unicycle hockey event on the Sunday (still to be confirmed). This will be 6 hours of continuous hockey so you can join in, no matter your skill level :slight_smile:
