Mackay will see an influx of visitors between 24th to 26th November with the hosting of the Under 13 Girls and Under 13 Boys Indoor State Hockey Championships.

The Championships present a great opportunity to showcase the state’s incredible hockey talent in a round robin competition and are used as a selection process for the Queensland Indoor Under 13 hockey teams.

Mackay Mayor Greg Williamson stated, “This event serves as a platform for our budding athletes to sharpen their skills and compete against some of the best hockey players in their division in the state.

“Good luck to all the players competing to today’s event, we trust this will be a fantastic tournament.

“Council is proud to support this event through our Invest Mackay Events Attraction Fund, which aims to attract visitors, generate positive economic results and foster community pride.”
