Fixtures are now LIVE!

BHF are pleased to announce that fixtures for #BlackpoolHF 2016 are now LIVE.

Once again there are two grass pitches (weather permitting) at the Cricket Club which accompanies our two excellent astro pitches next door at the Sports Centre.

This year sees one of the biggest changes being implemented since the new committee took over in 2012. Games from Friday to Sunday will now be 15 minutes one way with playoff games on Monday 25 minutes as per previous festivals.

Teams will now play 15/16 games over the weekend, depending on which format you are entered in.

The change comes in light of feedback that we have received from players and umpires during the 2015 festival.

We hope that the shorter games will encourage a more attacking game with the focus on playing ‘actual’ hockey!

Hopefully everyone enjoys the change and we encourage you to feedback to committee members over the course of the Festival.
