About Us

The Club

Scottish Thistles Masters Hockey Club has been created to provide good quality Hockey for both men and women from the ages of 35 onwards. At the moment, the club consists of men over the age of 60, but the whole club will be opening up to all others soon, including ladies. The groupings are in five year intervals, so 35 to 40, 40 to 45 etc

The members of the club have the opportunities to both go to International trial, or, play Hockey in our own competitions. Training and matches are open to all and the club endeavours to give equal opportunities to all of those wishing to play in friendly competitions. Our aim is to provide good Hockey and good fun for all players who wish to continue playing into eternity.
