HALVES OR QUARTERS?

By Halifax Hockey

Are we moving to 15min quarters, or sticking with the 35min halves?

England Hockey has, in recent years, endeavoured to apply a consistent set of rules throughout all levels of the sport.

However, the proposed change to 15-minute quarters has caused considerable concern.

The Board of England Hockey met on 16 July and agreed the following changes:

1. To apply 17.5 minute quarters (without the clock stopping at Penalty Corners) to the elite domestic club game specifically:

a. All Divisions of the England Hockey Leagues (the Investec Women’s Hockey League and Men’s England Hockey League);

b. Tier 1 of the Adult Club Championships.

2. For season 2019-20, to leave the rest of the club game played as halves, usually of 2x35 minutes (or shorter formats in the junior game as appropriate).

The implementation of quarters at lower levels will be considered over the course of the 2019/20 season, in light of the experience at the higher levels.
