The Tullett Islanders Hockey Club
The Tullett Islanders Hockey Club

The Tullett Islanders Portsmouth Hockey Festival XI comprises the Islanders and Castaways Men's teams and the Islanders Women’s team. The club was founded 47 years ago and has life and honorary members who have been invited to join, the invitation being based upon their abilities– generally to be of County standard or above.
The club runs an annual tournament at the Royal Navy’s sports ground at Burnaby Rd, Portsmouth, on two synthetic turf pitches and 1 grass pitch, always on the last bank holiday weekend (Saturday, Sunday and Monday) in the month of May each year.
Teams are arranged in pools, with cup and plate qualifiers playing semi-final matches followed by a women’s final and a men’s final. There will then be a presentation of club awards, individual prizes and mementos for the winning finalists.
We provide qualified umpires for all games. Email if you require futher details or would like to join our Umpires pool.
Adequate car parking is near the grounds, and a wide variety of attractively-priced hotels and boarding houses can be found close by – many within walking distance. Details of these can be obtained by telephoning the Portsmouth Tourist Office on 023 9283 8382 or by visiting their website.
Tournament Entry forms and Umpires details forms can be found and copied from the tournament details page on this website.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the best Tournaments in the UK.
