Taranaki Stampede take on Motueka

Despite the upheaval of Covid-19 on 2020, and it’s impact on the scheduled array of games within the world of Roller Hockey, the sport has still managed to rustle up a few tournaments.
The most recent of which was held in Motueka.
One 12-seater van loaded with players along with a car and  trailer load  taking the overflow of players, family and equipment road-tripped to Wellington, caught a smooth strait crossing to the sunny South Island.
Whanganui, Motueka and New Plymouth Roller Hockey clubs competed respectively in a formidable tussle for the pride of winning.
New Plymouth were so close to that  elusive title but not quite close enough to take out all the wins. The club  came away with 1st in Premier Grade, 2nd in the 2nd Division and 2nd in the U13’s. In total the club had 17 New Plymouth players and three borrowed players who made the trip south to represent Taranaki Rink Hockey.
Great sportsmanship, community and team spirit grew and the players now move forward into preparation for their  next tournament in Whanganui later this month.
**The club will then prepare to host Nationals, in their hometown early next month (October 8-9-10) at the East End Skating arena, New Plymouth. **
Look out for this event, spectators are welcome, subject to Alert  Level restrictions in force over the dates. Local support is encouraged, players will be on hand to answer any queries. The event runs over 3 days providing indoor exciting and entertaining sport .
