GO Hockey Festivals have been designed to ‘let the love of Hockey take you places‘ and have been held in some of the world’s best tourism, sporting and lifestyle destinations.
The name ‘Golden Oldies’ does not mean your team cannot play Hockey to the best of its ability or to its strengths. The sides you are drawn against will reflect the level of play which you have told us your team prefers – ranging from ‘competitive’ to ‘social’ and anywhere in between. The difference is we don’t publish the scores and there is no overall winner. Age is no barrier except you have to have reached 35 years to participate.
Golden Oldies World Hockey Festivals were first launched in 1983 when the inaugural Festival was held in Auckland, New Zealand.
The philosophy of the festivals have always been the same – to provide an opportunity to travel to different places, for a fun week of sport with like-minded enthusiasts. Its advent has changed people’s lives and resulted in many of them travelling away from their home countries for the first time.
