About the North Wilts Summer Sixes Hockey Festival: We are a friendly 6-a-side hockey competition held in Swindon, Wiltshire. There are separate mens and ladies trophies to be won!
The 6-a-side matches are fast & fun affairs. The matches take place on a third of a pitch, using full size goals, rolling substitutions and most of the normal hockey rules. Our matches are officiated by our umpires and are centrally timed. This means that you can concentrate on your hockey (or other activities – there is a licensed bar pitch-side).
The format of the competition is designed to make sure that all teams play as much hockey as possible. We generally start with a league competition followed by two knockout competitions for a cup for the stronger teams and a shield for those who err on the side of having fun above all else! This way all teams will get their fair share of pitch time.
Matches are officiated by OUR trained umpires and centrally timed.
All the matches are played on the sand-based astroturf pitch at Dorcan Leisure Centre in Swindon.
We have FREE camping available a short distance away at Swindon Rugby Club where the evening entertainment will be.
There’s a Fancy Dress competition Saturday night. This years theme is RIO CARNIVAL, (think feathers, and bright colours!).
Squads are a maximum of 12 players.
Register your teams!
