      UniHoki is the single best way to learn to make sharp turns in both directions.

      Not only will you be able to play, you'll also be getting better at it as the afternoon progresses.

      At first, just focus on staying on your uni. You'll be tempted to try some heroic turns and lunges just to get to the ball else you might feel you're 'letting your team down'. In reality, you'll be doing your team more of a favour by just staying on your uni. You might miss that one ball but if your teammate manages to tackle that player and get the ball, you might very well be in the perfect place to receive a defence-splitting pass. And if you're still busy trying to remount, you can't play.

      So take it very easy, stay on, and have fun.

        Do come along Ollie. As long as you can ride, then you'll be fine. It's not an issue either if you don't have your own hockey stick as we have plenty spare for all. We'll have riders of all abilities there, from beginners to expert and of all ages.

        Looking forward to seeing you there.

          Re: Hockey Tournament Manchester (UK) Saturday 10th December

          Hiya,
          I was at the Unimeet on the 26th of Nov and heard about the tournament
          there. Had a look at multimap for egerton street, and you wouldn't
          believe how many there are in Manchester, anyway, eventually found it
          and looked for train to the nearby denton station, and there's only
          about one a week! Would anybody be able to give me a lift to the venue?
          I'm in Sheffield, but could easily get a train to nearby stockport or
          anywhere else local if it works out easier. Thanks very much, am eager
          to play hockey again!

          Thanks

          Simon C

            I would think the Stockport to Denton bus service is worth a try. See

            http://www.stagecoachbus.com/timetab...725May2003.pdf

            Looks like a bus every hour . Stocport bus station is a couple of minutes ride ( downhill ) from the rail station.
            The dress in which I unicycled was not THAT short, but in retrospect, I think that maybe the blue one would have been more appropriate to the terrain.

              Hi Simon,

              If you can get the 10.11am train from Sheffield, arriving in Stockport at 10.53, then I'll be able to pick you up at the train station. Let us know if that's OK?

              I'll also be able to drop you back at the station after the hockey. It seems the trains run 1/2 hourly to Sheffield so you shouldn't have any problems getting home.

              Let us know if you want me to pick you up, plus confirm that I've got the times right.

              Pleased to hear you can make it on Saturday.
              Email me your mobile number just in case.

                  Down the long flight of steps to the bus station could be quite entertaining...

                    Would there be any space in your vehicle for another bod? If so I would be much obliged!

                      Hi Kit,

                      No probs. I'm picking Simon up at 11am ish outside the station so I'll see you there. Either PM me or email me your mobile number, just in case there's any problems.

                      See you sat,

                        Er ....agreed, although I might well seek out a route with rather less bumps myself. ;-)
                        Sadly I cannot be there on the day, but best wishes to all, and hi to the few that I actually have met.

                            Unfortunately I won't be able to make it either, which is even more annoying seeing as I'll be in Manchester on saturday...
                            Have Fun!

                              You can if you stop over at our place Saturday night, with the option of a 2 hour muni ride Sunday morning before heading home. There's quite a few others also stopping over and riding the following morning. Let us know if you would like to stop over. Don't forget to bring a sleeping bag and mattress.

                              Hope to see you there Saturday.
