THE second Belogotex sponsored Kearsney Hockey 5s Tournament gets underway this weekend, 10 to 12 August, and is set to become a fixture on the South African schools’ calendar following last year’s success.
This is a simplified version of the traditional 11-a-side game, fielding five players a side, on half the regulatory sized hockey pitch, with an addition of boundary walls. It’s an exciting, fast format of the game, played with minimal disruptions and provides extensive opportunity to exhibit impressive skills and a feast of goals.
