Discover Masters Hockey

Are you turning or over 35 and looking for exciting ways to play hockey? Why not try Masters!

Masters is a fun and exciting opportunity to play hockey for your club, County, Area or even country with players your age.

With the 8 Areas, England Hockey and World Masters Hockey providing all manner of activity such as ‘Play and Pay’ sessions midweek and throughout the summer, to leagues, tournaments and tours across the UK and abroad from O35 up to O70 for women and O35 up to O80 for men, there’s a way for everyone to get involved.

Where to play


Many clubs offer Masters, and even if your local club doesn’t have its own, there’s bound to be a team near you that would gladly have you play! You can find your local team here.

England Hockey run masters Cup and Plate competitions open to clubs or groups of clubs/counties for men O40s, O50s and O60s and women O35s, O45s and O55s age groups.


Represent your Area in the Area Masters tournaments. These are for all age groups and are held in May/June/July every year at venues across the country.

With the change from 5 Regions to 8 Areas last year, many more players are getting involved with this level of hockey and loving it.

Areas have open trials and welcome everyone. For details of age group contacts and trials as they are published. Head to the Masters Representative Teams page – Link to Masters Representative Teams page


Are you aiming for the top?

Why not represent your country and play at incredible venues across the world in competitions like the annual UK 4 Nations, and bi-annual World and European Cup events for all age groups, both men and women, or at England indoor and in ‘Spirit of Masters’ competitions. European and world level competitions widen the scope of opportunities to play in the top-flight.

An increasing number of players who represented their country at national senior level are now getting involved in post-35 age group activity, but the vast majority are club and Area players that have stayed fit, skilful and at the top of their game.
