Zim represented at over-40s hockey World Cup

HARARE - Zimbabwe will next week send a team to the Masters World Cup Hockey tournament in Rotterdam, Netherlands, for the first time in the country’s history.

The Masters World Cup is an unofficial World Cup for former hockey players over the age of 40.

Managed by sports enthusiast Kevin Whatman, a Mashonaland hockey captain in 1976 who still plays squash, badminton, cricket and Tiger Fishing, the Zimbabwe team includes both former national and first-class players with experience locally and abroad.

A notable inclusion in the team is former Zimbabwe Test cricketer Stuart Carlisle, a hockey fanatic who represented Natal in the sport while at university in South Africa. 

Louis Mnyama, a veteran of several hockey tests for Zimbabwe, is also a member of the touring party. 


Peter Tate, Stuart Armstrong, Neil Evans, Louis Mnyama, Simon Scott-Elliot, Stuart Carlisle, Dave Hurst, Gav Forster. Manager: Kevin Whatman.
