Summer

Overview 

During the Summer months, Wellington Hockey (WHA) organise competitions for participants of all ages and abilities.  

Summer Hockey Block 2 starts late January, early February depending on the grade you're registering for.

The purpose of the Summer Hockey is to entice new players by offering a social and fun element to the sport. We also want to lure our regular players into our summer competitions which allows them to play hockey in a relaxed and non-competitive manner.

WHA operate Summer Hockey out of the 4 venues we manage;

  • National Hockey Stadium, Berhampore
  • Fraser Park, Lower Hutt
  • Maidstone, Upper Hutt
  • Elsdon, Porirua
