The NSW Police Games Hockey event will commence at 10am at the Hockey Field (next to Building 9), University of Wollongong, Northfields Avenue, Wollongong.
The event will run alongside other sports, such as, Swimming (pool), Squash, Netball and Basketball. This will allow for a very social but competitive competition.
The facility features change rooms, toilets, showers and other University facilities, allowing for a great sporting atmosphere.
There will be a social gathering on Saturday night at the Northbeach Novotel in The Admirals Room, which I encourage all hockey players to attend. This is a child free event (Sorry!).
