Hockey Club Luxembourg is organising an international hockey tournament this week-end (8-9 July 2017) with teams from the UK, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands playing at the Terrain de Sport Boy Konen in Luxembourg-Cessange.
This will be the 7th edition of the Luxury Hockey Tour, this year named “Safari” Tour.
As with previous years, this is a charity tour - all funds raised will go to worthy causes, including KriibsKrank Kanner (which has been supporting children fighting cancer or a rare life threatening disease and their families for over 28 years), as well as Pour un Sourire d’Enfant (PSE, a charity supporting poor children in Cambodia, giving them an education to ensure they have a better life).
All bar takings and sponsorship goes directly to the chosen charities. This event's record year raised €12,000 in one day.
All matches will be played with 8 players, incl a padded goalie and at least 3 ladies on the pitch at all times. Matches will be played on half-size pitches and will last 25 minutes one-way. Indoor rules will apply.
