Scratch Hockey Tournament Manchester, UK. Saturday 21st July

The Denton Unicycle Club (DUC) will be holding a scratch hockey tournament on Saturday 21st July.

This will be held at the same venue as usual. That being…

Egerton Park Community Arts College
Egerton Street
M34 3PB

This tournament is for everyone, whether you’re just a beginner or seasoned pro! 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.

Things will run as usual, between 12 noon and 6pm. The cost is £7 for adults and £5 for the under 16’s.

The hall itself is large, perfectly suited for hockey and has a good riding surface (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 stopover at our place Saturday night, then you’re more than welcome to. Just let me know beforehand.

See you all there.

We normally get about 30 players turning up for our scratch tournaments and are always great fun.

You don’t need to reply here - just turn up on the day. Everyone who turns up will get to play. Beginners get to play slightly more hockey, as we have the beginners only game to start things off with.

See you all there.

Hey mate,

unfortunatly I wont be able to make it - ill be in Devon.

Hope it goes well, and I look forward to the next one!


Bump. Two weeks to go now. :smiley:

It doesn’t look as though a lot is happening on the hockey front during the Summer months, so make sure you get to Denton, Manchester this Saturday for the usual 6 hours of hockey. It’s scratch teams, so all are welcome.

If anyone would like to stop over Saturday night then please let us know beforehand.

Unfortunately there won’t be any muni ride Sunday this time.

See you all there,

Steve & Stu

Can’t wait. Am polishing my hockey stick in anticipation.
