The aim of the WHC is to provide some fun, relaxed and friendly hockey during the summer months, as well as an opportunity to bring on newer and younger players (and umpires!).
The tournament takes the form of a round robin league, with each team playing every other team once. Matches are held weekday evenings, typically with 7pm and 8pm pushbacks.
Matches are held at Abingdon’s home ground, Tilsley Park. Any team is welcome to enter (usually by the end of April each year), and most local clubs enter a team. We have had teams from as far West as Witney, as far North as Bicester, and as far South as Newbury enter the White Horse Cup.
Most clubs enter a team consisting of a mix of all their players from the eligible England Hockey leagues with the event lasting around two months.
Abingdon members and previous participating clubs will be contacted by the club towards the end of the standard season and if you are a new club looking to join, please get in touch!
See you in the summer!
Congratulations to our 2022 Champions – Abingdon Ladies C’s beat Wychwood Shipton 2-0 in the Ladies Cup Final with Abingdon Men topping the Men’s League! Well done to all our participants and we look forward to welcoming you in 2023!
