Great tournament!

Introduction

Valencia is an enchanting city and the ideal place to go for a field hockey tournament. Spain’s third largest city boasts of beautiful beaches, a warm Mediterranean climate, state-of-the-art sporting facilities, many restaurants and museums as well as a lively nightlife.

Make your trip one to remember with a bike ride through the architectural wonder of La Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, a tapas tour in the heart of the enchanting old city or by simply sitting back and soaking up the sunshine in one of the many botanical city gardens. With around 300 days of sunshine per year, who could think of a better place to play hockey with your mates!

The Paella Cup Tournament is now in its forth edition and owes its success to its perfect blend of competitive, culture and social activities. Play on the same turf as Olympic finalists at one of Valencia’s top-notch hockey facilities and host of the World Hockey League two years running (2016-17). Enjoy making new international and local friends at the different social activities we organise.

Our friendly, local staff can help minimise the hassle of organising a group trip as well as make sure you have someone close by to assist you with whatever you need during your visit.
