Each age division plays three matches and the nation that wins the most divisions across the men’s and women’s competitions is declared the Trans-Tasman Champion.
The Trans-Tasman Hockey Challenge brings together approximately 608 participants across players, coaches, support staff and officials. The 2019 Trans-Tasman Masters Hockey Challenge will take place at both the Gold Coast Hockey Centre and the Nikki Hudson Centre in Runaway Bay.
