Golden Oldies Festivals are designed to give players from the age of 35 the opportunity to play their sport in various Hockey centres around the world.

Themed with 'Fun, Friendship and Fraternity' and following the tenet ‘Let the love of Hockey take you places’, Golden Oldies keeps players in the game and as one of our recent converts exclaimed, is “a real blast”!

Golden Oldies gives all participants the opportunity to renew old friendships and to form new ones with fellow players across the globe. Competitive on the field and really sociable off, Golden Oldies players are part of a world-wide community of Golden Oldies Sports people who enjoy travelling to great sporting destinations for a Festival designed to allow participants to enjoy their sport and the socialising that goes with it.

The Festival is open to players aged 35 and over and is totally inclusive. The Festival welcomes players of all abilities, agility and experience. Teams are graded by age and self-judged ability and games range from Competitive through various grades to Social.

Friends, family and supporters are encouraged to attend the week-long Festival, where the social functions are just as important as the games.

Previous Festivals have been held in many great destinations with the most recent being Leipzig, Germany in 2015. 2017 saw us in Cape Town, South Africa and then we'll be in beautiful and vibrant Christchurch in 2018.

The Christchurch Casino Golden Oldies Sports Celebration 2018 is part of a great Golden Oldies Celebration Month featuring a total of 10 sports, all well established in Christchurch and committed to the enjoyment of their sport in a fabulous city.
