Regional Teams

South Regional teams are also a great way to play a high level of hockey and meet up with other players from across the country. Many players from the South also represent their country and renew old friendships and on-pitch rivalries in Home Internationals, European and World Championships played all over the World.

Anyone born in, or before, 1983 is entitled to play Masters Hockey for their Region, or indeed for England. In the South we have Men's Masters Teams at ages Over 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70 and 75 and Women's Masters Teams at Over 35, 40, 45, 50, 55 and 60. 

In recent years we have been very successful at Regional Masters Tournaments, with many South players going on to represent England. But we feel that many potential players are unaware of the possibilities of representing the South and how our squads are selected.
