7th July 2016: At the second venue of our #EuroHockey5s Future Heroes Cup they started yesterday at Olympic Centre in Walcz. Walcz welcomed us with rain, but the rain didn’t disturb our tournament so the opening games were played according to the schedule. Maybe it’s because of that very good pitch drainage?

During the 1st, the 2nd and the 3rd matches, the difference in scores was high. The rest of the matches were even.

General Secretary of The Polish Hockey Association said “The games were so dynamic and spectacular, plus the Olympic Centre has prepared very well for the tournament.”

The players played hard and in spite of the big differences all fought hard to the end of the games.

Although the games are 30minutes (3×10 minutes) – as the ball is almost always in play, the players had to work very hard during these short games!
