2011-12

18-Apr-12 - Hornets Confirm Entry to the one and only LadyBoys Festival @ Guildford HC for July 2013.
Guildford Hockey Club As usual the Hornets have confirmed that they will returning to action at the LadyBoys Festival in Guildford in July. A Hornet favourite and one of the teams that has never missed a festival since its inception, this was never really in doubt. Coming shortly after the disappoing news that they will not be attending the revamped Bath festival, this may now be the last festival of 2013..
   
14-Apr-13 - Bath Convert Festival to 7s.
Team Bath Buccaneers After the disappointment of last year's festival being cancelled due to a lack of interest or - to be fair - being unable to compete with the Olympics, Bath have announced that for 2103 the format of the competition has changed to a 7s tournament. The Hornets have been ever present at Bath since it's inception back in 2002, but there is little appetitie for a 7s tournament within the club so there will be no representatives from the Hornets this year.
   
10-Feb-13 - Hornets Return to Folkestone Optimists HC for Easter Tour 2013.
Folkestone Optimists Hockey Club As expected the Hornets return to Folkestone for the 2013 Easter Tour. Not only to sample the delights of the Sunny Lodge Guest House but also to see the development of the new facilities at the Optimists ground. Hopefully it will open in time!
   
14-Jul-12 - Bath Cancel Festival due to Olympics.
Team Bath Buccaneers Unfortunately, Bath has cancelled the 2012 Festival due to the Olympics clashing with the event. In an email from Bath they said "We simply don't have enough teams coming to run it. Many are stating the Olympics being a factor as players are committed to tickets or volunteering. Rest assured, we will be back refreshed and renewed in Summer 2013. You can't keep a good hockey festival down!". Of course when the festival returns, so will the Hornets!
   
16-May-12 - Hornets Confirm Entry to the LadyBoys Festival @ Guildford HC for July 2012.
Guildford Hockey Club As usual the Hornets have confirmed that they will returning to action at the LadyBoys Festival in Guildford in July. A Hornet favourite and one of the teams that has never missed a festival since its inception, this was never really in doubt. Coming off the back of their 2nd place at Folkestone Optimists Easter Tour and being a 3 time previous winner at the LadyBoys Festival, then the Hornets are looking to secure more silverware.
   
06-Feb-12 - Hornets Return to Folkestone Optimists HC for Easter Tour 2012.
Folkestone Optimists Hockey Club Back in time to one of the best Easter Festivals that the Hornets have ever attended. After a 7 year break the Hornets returned to Folkestone Optimists and walked - staggered - away with the runners-up spot in the Champions Trophy. Congrats to all who took part. Moreover, with two new waterbased pitches, the grass pitches being retired and a new clubhouse being built... plus a very friendly local guest house... this may be the venue of choice for 2013 too!
   
16-Jun-11 - Hornets speculate over 2012 SuperHornets Tour.
Anglo-Dutch Super Hornets After the social success of the 2011 Superhornets Tour, concern was expressed over the lack of hockey. Increasingly, over the last few years, the Dutch tours have resulted in little or no hockey played - as the Dutch venues seem to cater more for the social side despite the great hockey facilities. Chris Ek & Gareth ran into a dutch bloke in Einhoven who recommended a tour for next year (twice actually, as he told the same story when he was drunk): The tour is at Hockeyclub Groen Geel near The Hague. "Haags Hockey Open (HHO) toernooi" www.haagsehockeyopen.nl. It's in the WHITSUNDAY holiday, there are loads of themes and costumes, and, more imporantly, hockey games are actually played!

Guildford Hockey Club
After the succes of winning Trojans HC for Easter Tour, the Hornets have confirmed that they will returning to action at the LadyBoys Festival in Guildford in July. Coming off the back of their win at Trojans and being a 3 time previous winner at the LadyBoys Festival, mood remains expectant of the team to secure more silverware.
   
25-Apr-11 - Hornets win Trojans HC Easter Festival 2011.
Trojans Hockey Club After recent succesess at Guildford & Bath, the Hornets return from Trojans HC Easter Tour victories. Two days of questionable hockey in the soaring heat saw the Hornets keep their cool and remain undefeated over the weekend. Crowned by Mike Selby aka Hogger rinsing the opposition in the presentation one-person-boat-race of a 2pt 'Boot' of snakebite.
   
04-Apr-11 - Hornets Return to Trojans HC for Easter Tour 2011.
Trojans Hockey Club After the succes of last year's return to Trojans HC for Easter Tour, the Hornets have confirmed that they will beback again for 2011. This will complete the plan of attending this festival for three years - with a slight gap int he middle coinciding with the Hornets 10th year anninversary when they went back to the original tour where it had all begun - Bournemouth.
