Australia’s Best U21 Hockey Players Descend On Lismore For National Hockey Championships

Author: Mitch Wynd

The best Under 21 hockey players in Australia are descending on Lismore in their campaign to claim the national championship trophy. The championships, which include both a men’s and a women’s championship, start on July 10 at the Goonellabah Hockey Complex.

Last year’s champions, the Tasmanian men’s team and the New South Wales’ women’s team, will face strong competition from teams representing all States and Territories in the week-long tournament, said Hockey Australia (HA) CEO, Matt Favier.

“Australia is one of the best hockey nations in the world with our men ranked first and women second. The championships give players and officials the chance to develop their skills in a highly competitive environment and I have no doubt that the Championship will feature players destined to become a Hockeyroos and Kookaburras player.

Will we have dry artificial turf by Paris 2024

Monday, 8 July 2019 4:31:00 PM Australia/Sydney

Thierry Weil dropped a small bomb last November in his very first FIH congress that has gone unnoticed mostly by hockey followers and -media. Speaking about the playing surface Weil announced basically two elements:

  1. He called upon suppliers for turf, ball and footwear to work together towards the goal of a dry artificial turf by Paris 2024. The FIH wants no more waterbased pitches by 2024 in times where water is a scarce resource around the world.
  2. Hockey can be played on any surface! Today elite hockey requires waterbased pitches. that requirements has been abolished, though for the major global events it will still be upheld.

Media and hockey followers heard only the second remark and translated this into “hockey can be played on natural grass again”. Creating false hope among Pakistani and Indian hockeyfans longing for the good ol’ days of their supremacy on grass around the world.

The key of Weil’s message – in my opinion – was never about a return to natural grass but rather hockey can be played on any surface. Waterbased pitches are not the one and only option anymore for competitive events. This is something we can all agree upon I think. It’s common sense.

His first remark however is somewhat more controversial. No more waterbased pitches by Paris 2024 for the elite events is a noble goal, but maybe not a very realistic goal.

Let’s listen to his words from this announcement during the FIH global congress in New Delhi, India from November 2018…
