The Spike or Victoria College Review 1937

Women's Hockey Club

Women's Hockey Club

From the point of view of success, Women's Hockey has been disappointing this year. We entered two teams in the local competitions, one in the Senior A grade, and one in the junior, but neither has had very great success. There are several reasons for this, the chief being a lack of recruits from secondary schools; and also, as few players are full-time students, it is difficult to arrange effective practices in order to train new players. However, in some part, it must be attributed to want of enthusiasm among the players. The Junior team is composed almost entirely of new players who have shown considerable keenness, and should some suitable system of coaching be inaugurated to ensure that Juniors with ability and practical experience would be coming on, we might build up a strong Senior team.

Holding the annual Tournament at Auckland this year, marked a departure from the ordinary procedure, but it proved so successful that, in future, Tournaments are to be held at the four centres consecutively, instead of at Christchurch or Wellington as previously.

We extend our congratulations to Miss N, Bayfield on her selection, and on her play, for New Zealand against the Fijian team, and also to Miss B. Thompson, who was selected as emergency.
