As one competition reaches its conclusion, another begins. Whilst the Odisha World Cup in Bhubaneswar, India stages the semi-finals, third place playoff and final this weekend, Surbiton Men will be at Bromsgrove School to begin their Super 6s Premier Division campaign.

The address of the venue is Bromsgrove School, Worcester Road, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire B61 7DU.

Having won the Championships at Wembley Arena in 2017, Surbiton lost out to East Grinstead at the semi-final stage in 2018 at the Copper Box Arena and in 2019, Surbiton will be aiming to finish in the top four to have another crack at lifting the indoor national title at the latter venue.

Surbiton start at 11.30 on Saturday (15 December) when they take on newly promoted Hampstead & Westminster, winners of promotion last season from Division One, in second place behind Canterbury. At 4.30 pm on Saturday, Surbiton face another London derby against local rivals Wimbledon, and then on Sunday, Brooklands Manchester University are their opponents at 11 am before an eagerly anticipated meeting with East Grinstead concludes the first weekend at 4 pm.

On the second weekend of the competition (5/6 January) Surbiton will have a Kent triple header against Sevenoaks, Holcombe and Canterbury before finishing against Team Bath Buccaneers.

Surbiton’s progress over both weekends can be followed in real time at the England Hockey Altius website where information about all England Hockey indoor competitions will eventually be available.
