WHA NEWSLETTER // HOCKEY NEWS #14

October 09, 2020














Dear Hockey Community,

 
We have come to the end of the strangest season most of us have ever known, and it is time to celebrate.

We have gone from not knowing if we were even going to have a season this year to reaching finals day.

This would not have been possible without the help and support of the whole community.

Thank you to all the volunteers from clubs who have put a significant amount of time to ensure the season could go ahead under difficult circumstances, to the supporters who have followed all the instructions given at the different alert levels, and to the players who have given their all each week for the sport we love.

Special thanks to our umpires, without you our sport could not happen, and we do not underestimate the contribution you make.

We hope you enjoyed finals weekend, it is the culmination of months of hard work and is a true celebration of Hockey.

We look forward to seeing you all back in 2021.

Lisa Jones
CEO, Wellington Hockey
