Recap - What is Vintage Hockey?
Vintage Hockey is the latest sport to join the growing Vintage Sports Movement that already includes rugby, cricket, softball, golf and football. Vintage Sports Carnivals are designed for players of all abilities, agilities and experience, over 35 years of age. And if playing the sport you love isn't enough, carnivals are staged in attractive destinations where the chosen sport, in this case hockey, has a significant presence.
In summary, a Carnival can be the ultimate experience for an avid mature sportsperson (over 35 years of age) who whilst never reaching representative status can now ‘compete' against and relax in the company of similar aged people from all over the world - every 2 years!
One More Day of Play
Since the delivery of the last Vintage Hockey newsletter in June, we have had a number of people request an additional day of play. A fourth day of hockey games will be offered on Thursday the 25th October to those who wish to take advantage of playing more hockey in sunny Barbados.
Beautiful, Balmy, Blissful, Barbados
The wild Atlantic-battered east coast is a legend with surfers; those looking for action will find wind-surfing, hiking, diving and more. Barbados is a great destination, and despite its popularity, you'll have no trouble making it your own. Away from the glitz, it's still a place of classic calypso rhythms, an island-time vibe and world-famous rums.
Half a million people can't be wrong. That's the number of visitors Barbados attracts annually, and it doesn't take long before you see why they come by the planeload; the coasts are ringed by the kinds of azure-water and white-sand visions that fuel the fantasies of Brits, Americans and Canadians stuck shivering away in some snowy winter clime.

The Vintage Hockey Caribbean Cruise
If you are in a Barbados mood, then why not join one of the relaxing Tiami Catamaran Cruises. Five hours on a luxury Catamaran spent swimming, snorkelling, exploring the coastline, enjoying a fabulous lunch and having the odd drink or three (…or four). The cruise visits a shipwreck, crosses the reef and allows those who want to swim with the turtles in a brilliant clear Caribbean sea. Then enjoy an exhilarating sail back to base enjoying the wind, the sea, the sun, the sounds of the Caribbean and a relaxing rum punch. It doesn't get any better than this.
