Summer League Is Back!

We are excited to announce the return of Summer League! Below is all the info you need about how you can get involved.

Location: Dulwich College

Dates: 7, 14, 21, 28 May, 4, 11, 18, 25 June, 2 & 9 July 2024.

Timings: 6:45pm, 7:30pm or 8:15pm - full schedule of matches to be sent out shortly.


THD Upper Club Mixed Summer League Tournament

Cost: £50 per player (due up front to your captain before the first match).

Day: Wednesday Nights

Location: Dulwich College

Dates: 8, 15, 22, 29 May, 5, 12, 19, 26 June, 3 & 10 July 2024.

Timings: 7pm or 8pm - full schedule of matches to be sent out shortly.


Who is this suited towards?

The lower competition is suitable for players from London Division 3 and below. The upper competition is suitable for players from Division 3 and above.


What's included in the cost?

10x weeks of matches (roughly 8 matches per team depending on numbers) with umpires.

1 free drink per player and nachos for the team after each match in the Alleyns Head Pub (5 min walk from DC).


Is there a pay per play option?

Sadly not, this was previously causing a lot of issues for the club being able to track who's played / paid. The cost of £50 per player covers the entire 10x weeks and when combined with the free drink is great value for summer hockey.


How do I pay?

Please pay your captain before the first week of matches. Each captain is responsible for making the entire team's payment into the club bank account before the first match.


Is there a mixed competition?

The lower competition on Tuesday nights is single gender. The upper club competition on Wednesday nights is mixed.


How do we enter?

Please register your interest here (deadline 30 April 2024).


When will I know what team I am in?

As soon as we have completed sign ups we will allocate everyone into teams and send out the schedule of matches. Team captains will be in touch to organise whatsapp groups ands payments are due before the first match on 7 May 2024.


Who can I speak to if I have questions?

Please see the list below of tournament organisers;


*Captains Needed* 

We need a number of captains to lead the teams. You'll need to organise your team (make sure they are there at the right time etc...), submit results, pick up the occasional bar tab and submit expenses to the treasurer (to be reimbursed) and organise umpires for the match before/after you. Please declare on the form if you are willing to be a summer league captain. You do not need to be a regular captain to be a summer league captain.

*Umpires Needed*

Summer League is a great opportunity to give umpiring a go for the first time (or improve your umpiring skills). Please get in touch with me or your captain if you are interested in picking up more umpiring. Similarly, if you are an umpire and want to get involved please let us know and we can ensure you get as many games as you want. 

We will be running a programme throughout the summer where experienced umpires will shadow newbies to assist and build confidence. The aim is to build a stronger base of umpires who are willing to step up for next season.

If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.


Kind Regards
