England Hockey’s Knockout Cup competitions have been given a bold makeover and rebrand, and entries to the all new England Hockey Championships are now open.

The England Hockey Championships have been designed to be more inclusive, enabling more of your hockey clubs and teams to participate in a national championship – with the aim of more evenly contested games.

Enter as many teams as you like

The championships are open to all club teams – not, as in previous years, just your first and second XIs. Tiers of competition have been created in a bid to both level the playing field and to create more games, matching up teams of similar abilities.

The new Men’s and Investec Women’s Championships allows any team from your club to enter – from your women’s 1st XI right down to your men’s 7th XI.

The Mixed Championships offers a great chance for the men’s and women’s teams of your club to play together. Clubs can enter more than one team into this competition, and the lively social scene that runs alongside the competition makes this an extremely popular event.

Any team can enter the Adult and Mixed Championships, while four tiers have been created to make the competition more even. Entry to any of the four tiers of the championship is based on which league/division your team play in.

And there are Junior and Masters competitions too. The Masters event is open to teams in over 35s and over 45s in the women’s championships, and in the Men’s Championships teams can enter in over 40s, over 50s and over 60s. In the juniors, u14s, u16s and u18s categories are open and revamped, with second tiers introduced to give more opportunities for youngsters to compete.

Over 200 teams have registered so far. As well as the chance to compete and pit your wits against rivals old and new, it’s a great chance to enjoy the camaraderie of away days with the team. Should you have any queries you can email. The deadline for entries is 17th September, and you can find out how to enter here. Get involved!
