The 2015 National Hockey Festival, presented by CranBarry, is the largest event of its kind in the world that brings together field hockey enthusiasts across multiple divisions ranging from Under 14 to mixed adult to men all to celebrate the sport. Taking place at the Empire Polo Club in Palm Springs, Calif. for the second year in a row, the annual Thanksgiving weekend tournament will run from Thursday, November 26 to Sunday, November 29.
“We are delighted to be hosting the 2015 National Hockey Festival at the prestigious Empire Polo Club in Palm Springs,” said Simon Hoskins, USA Field Hockey Executive Director. “We have 3,000 plus families from across the U.S. thrilled to be spending their Thanksgiving weekend in the Palm Springs community.”
