​​​​​​​Location of games: The majority of games are played at our three turfs at Tauranga Hockey Centre, Mt Maunganui. It depends on team entries as to whether games are also played at Tauranga Boys' College or/and Bethlehem College satellite turfs. The draw clearly states which turf your game is on.

If games are played at BC and TGA Boys please ensure you keep to the times on the draw. Umpires need to manage this. If games get behind time, then warmups need to be shortened so time can be caught up and later games start at the correct time.

Cancellation Procedure

Game by Game, Turf by Turf

If there are major storms due then the Competition Administrator can decide to notify that the whole night of competition has been cancelled before the start of games.

Alternatively, and more likely, if the rain radar shows that the bad weather will come and go, then cancellations may be on a game by game, turf by turf basis with umpires and the competition coordinator deciding on the state of the turfs. ​​​​​​​

For notifications of any cancellations: Click here 

Team Lists & Player Registrations

​​​​​​​All players must register through PlayHQ. On the team list/player registration due date, all registered players in PlayHQ must be allocated to a team. The team lists will then be downloaded from PlayHQ and will be the official team list of the season. Any adjustments to the team lists after this date must follow the handbook rules.

If there is a protest about a player who is not listed on your team list (therefore classified as being unregistered) this may result in your team forfeiting match points as per the handbook.
