The Denton Unicycle Club (DUC) will be holding a couple more hockey tournaments. One on Saturday 10th February and one on 10th March.
This will be held at the same venue as usual. That being…
Egerton Park Community Arts College
Saturday 10th Feb
This tournament is for everyone, whether you’re just a beginner or seasoned pro! For the first tournament on the 10th Feb, we’ll be splitting everyone into scratch teams to balance the sides out as best as possible. Nobody will be left out - if you turn up then you’ll be put into a team.
There will be a beginners only game to start things off. Then everyone will be put into scratch teams for the tournament proper.
Saturday 10th March
The second tournament, on the 10th March, will form part of the new hockey league (still being set up) and will be for organised teams only. If you don’t happen to be a member of a team, then not to worry, as we’ll put you into scratch teams. If there’s any time over once all the teams have played each other, then we’ll mix everyone up into scratch teams for more games.
[B]If your team can make it to Manchester, then please reply to this thread as I need to have an idea of numbers. If we struggle to get sufficient team interest, then we’ll resort to scratch teams only (as usual).
For the ones wishing to enter in one of the scratch teams, you don’t need to reply - just turn up on the day.[/B]
Both these tournaments will all take place between 12 noon and 6pm. The cost is going to be £7 for adults and £5 for the under 16’s.
The hall itself is large, perfectly suited for hockey and has a relatively new floor (plastic pedals only). There are shower facilities for the ones that require them.
There will be free tea, coffee and soft drinks throughout the afternoon.
For the ones among you without SatNav, here are the Directions:
From junction 24 on the M60, follow the sign for Denton A57 to the second set of lights (sign posted Audenshaw, Arrow Trading Estate) where you turn left. The road then bends to left and then to the right. After this right bend take the first road on your right into Egerton St. We’re 200m on the right, just after the college main building.
Alternatively, join the M67 at junction 24, turn left at the first exit (junction 1A) and Egerton St is the 3rd turning on the left.
Note: please ensure that you use plastic pedals and NOT metal ones.
We’ll be able to do pick-ups and drop-offs from Stockport station if you’re arriving by train.
If anyone would like to stop over at our place Saturday night, then you’re more than welcome to.
There will be the usual MUni ride the following Sunday mornings. I’ll give details nearer the time for the ones that are not stopping over who may like to come along.
See you all there.
