Welcome to my hockey blog. I hope that you enjoy the site and the adventure of the Australian 60s team to the Grandmasters World Cup to be played in Oxford, England from 14th to 24th August, 2012.
We leave for Dubai on Sunday 5th August and after a day or two of sightseeing, we will play the Emirates Over 45 team in a practice match at a new Hockey Stadium at Dubai Sports City at 9.20pm on Tuesday 7th August. Even at that time in the evening, it will be oppressively hot. The stopover in Dubai was planned to be a good way to break the 24 hour trip to London, to add excitement seeing the marvel that is Dubai, and to play a game of hockey there. Hopefully great memories will be made.
