From Thursday 24th September, Indoor adult (18+) team sport will no longer be exempt from the Government's rule of six. This new ruling means that the planned restart of The Indoor Hockey Leagues in Bristol has been cancelled. Teams have been informed.
However, all organised Indoor Hockey activity for children continues to exempt from the rule of six. Therefore we are delighted to announce that registration for first regular Indoor Hockey League for young players is open!
The leagues will run on a Friday evening from 7pm and will be open to U12 boys, U12 girls, U14 boys and U14 girls teams. each category will play on a different week in rotation, so teams can expect to play once every four weeks. We hope that this provides enough of a regular taste for the Indoor version of the game without impinging too much of other commitments.

The inaugural Indoor Hockey League in Bristol came to a close last week with the completion of the men's league. In a closely fought competition which epitomised the spirit of the league: sociable but competitive! An unfortunate forfeit by Clifton Robinsons left the door open for Bristol Sharks to claim the top spot without even playing. Wotton ended the league well with a win over the Keynsham & Bath City team. All of the teams (which have varied in terms of indoor hockey experience ) have reported positive feedback of their experience of the league all have left wanting more.. The league will take a short break now before starting up again later in the summer - keep your eye on social media for registration details and share the love with your fellow Bristol clubs.
The women's Indoor Hockey League in Bristol ended this week with Firebrands HC sneaking the top spot by just 3 goals from Westberries HC. An entertaining if a little (OK, very!) sweaty evening of indoor hockey brought to a close the first season of The Indoor Hockey league for women in Bristol. The games have been played with a fantastic competitive but social spirit with players often helping opposing teams out when short but still giving it all on the pitch. There has been lots of laughter, learning (of the indoor rules) and a growing love for the indoor game with teams wanting more! The league will take a short break now before starting up again later in the summer - keep your eye on social media for registration details. Enjoy the summer - when it arrives!
