The New Zealand and Australian Masters do battle in Whangarei from 2-6 May as both teams set their sights on the Trans-Tasman Challenge Trophy.
Thirteen grades will take to the turf up north – 35+, 40+, 45+, 50+, 55+ and 60+ in both Men and Women, and the 65+ Men will also take to the field.
The Trans-Tasman Challenge trophy is awarded to the country who obtains the most points across the 39 total games played over the week. Three points are awarded for a win, one point for a draw and zero for a loss.
The heat will be on from the get go, with the 55+ Men getting the series underway at 10am at the Whangarei Hockey Centre.
The Grant Hunt coached New Zealand side, including former Black Stick Hus Bhikha are looking to get the New Zealand contingent off to a strong start.
Interest will also center on the 40+ Women’s side, led by Black Sticks legend Suzie Muirhead, fresh off a gold medal winning performance at the World Masters Games.
Entry to the Whangarei Hockey Centre is free throughout the week, with the action finishing on Saturday 6th May.
