The W65s on a recent Thistles playing trip in Barcelona.

The second Spirit of Masters Festival of Hockey will again be held in Dundee.

Scottish Masters Hockey players will use the festival – between August 12-14 – as a springboard for the Masters World Cups that are coming up in the next few months.

In the Dundee Men’s Over 60+ side there are seven Masters players, while every one of the Scottish Bluebells Ladies Over 60 team and the Scottish Thistles Ladies Over 65 team are using this event as a warm-up for the International Grand Masters World Cup taking place in South Africa.

There will be 19 men’s and women’s teams aged between 55 to 80 years attending, including squads from the Alliance Club, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Supporters are welcome to and watch the hockey on display.

Find out more about the event or, better still, make a point of coming along and supporting Masters Hockey.
