Red Pips Green in Pikinini Hockey Competition
The Vanuatu Hockey Federation held a
month-long mini hockey tournament for boys' and girls' at Wan Smol
Bag Sports Court with the finals being played on Tuesday. Four teams
entered; six to a team which included at least two girls and the
average age of participants was eleven.
Playing every Tuesday and Sunday
afternoons the competition was a round robin format and the Red team
showed the way throughout, advancing undefeated and were too strong
for the improving Green team in the final 6 - 1. The playoff for
third saw the Yellow team work well as a unit to crush the Blue team
7 - 1.
The mini competition was held to finish
off the year of training and plei plei games for the kids which has
seen a substantial improvement in the standard of play for this young
sport and its' young players.

start on Tuesday 22nd January from 5pm and anyone young or old
interested in trying out hockey is encouraged to come along.
