Great Britain vs Argentina: Double Header, 18 May – SOLD OUT
When it comes to passion, flair and firepower few teams come close to Argentina! With the Argentina’s men ranked second in the world as well as being the current Olympic champions, and their women fourth in the world and with a history of their own success, this is shaping up to be a cracking spectacle. Their incredible supporters are well known for their loud singing and loyal support.

Great Britain vs Belgium: Double Header, 19 May
Belgium’s men are Olympic and European Silver medallists and renowned for their strength and depth, harbouring a wealth of world-class talent including 2017 FIH World Player of the Year Arthur Van Doren.

Great Britain vs Australia: Double Header, 9 June 
Australia’s men and women possess incredible pedigree with plenty of famous players and teams well remembered in hockey history. The men’s side are currently number one in the world while the women, who made it to the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup semi-finals, currently sit in third.

Great Britain vs Netherlands: Women, Fri 14 June; Men, Sat 15 June
The Netherlands women’s team have dominated international hockey for a number of years and showed their skill and class in abundance to win the recent Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup in London. The men’s side possess equal skill and, although they sit fourth in the world rankings, can beat any side with their deep talent reserves.

Great Britain vs New Zealand: Double Header, 23 June, The Stoop 
This fixture has now moved to The Stoop, Harlequins rugby team’s home ground in Twickenham, due to high demand. New Zealand are a top 10 nation in both genders and many will remember their women’s match with Great Britain at the London 2012 Olympics as they faced off for a bronze medal which Great Britain famously won.
