England is hosting the above event at the Bellevue Hockey Centre in Manchester from 18-26 August 2007 with both Men's and Women's teams participating. For more details, go to http://www.eurohockeymanchester2007.com -- this can also be accessed via the Useful Links section of our website.

It has been suggested that HHC members might like to combine attendance at the tournament with playing a few games against local sides on an informal tour basis. This is traditionally the time of year when the club has toured in the past and the event would provide a good reason to revive the tradition. Didsbury, who our men played a few years ago in the EH Vase competition, spring to mind as a side that might like to provide some opposition and I have good contacts at Bowden if required.

Should anybody wish to take on the task of organising a touring group for this event, please contact me.
