Intercity Challenge 2022

The Merv Goodridge & Doug Dawson Cup

Sydney Masters Hockey Association will play host for the Intercity Challenge 2022. All games will be played on 19 & 20 November at Cintra Park (the home ground of Briars Hockey Club) in Concord. This was the 3rd field used for the 2013 Australian Masters Hockey Championships and is 10 minutes from Sydney Olympic Park.

The initial planning is for 2 games per Age Group (4 x 15 minutes quarters each game) commencing at 12.30pm on Saturday 19 November (to enable Canberra players to drive up in the morning).
