    Pretty good Nic! It's Inverleith.

    Here's the EuroHockey Indoor Club Championships 2012 pool / venue update. They're in the Trophy competition, in Edinburgh.

    Didnt realise it was in Scotland! I must make a point to pop along and watch. It wont be in Edinburgh though as there is no indoor venues. Probably Perth (Bells)

    I think it will actually be held at the new sports hall at Napier.

    Thanks. What happened to Menzieshill?

    But it sounds kinda strange to me that there is no real indoor court in a big city as Edinburgh, or I actually feel more sorry :sorry:

    Is probably because we have one main sports centre ( meadowbank, which is on the brink of being torn down.. over 30 years old!) Cities such as perth, dundee, stirling etc. have much better sports centres, hence why they are used. Once, ( or if) Edinburgh ever get round to building the new sports facility at sighthill, then maybe indoor hockey will be back in Edinburgh!

    Looks like Napier has been confirmed (at the moment) as the venue, according to an article in The Scotsman. Apparently they are looking at creating tiered seating for 300 people to attend. Not sure if that is enough or will be too much. I'm certainly wanting to attend, cos i love indoor. Hopefully a lot of other people will too. :)

    Yeh, Napier.
    Not seen the article, but I heard some talk that it bould be 'across' the hall on the green mat of elvin Hall/Lagoon fame... easy room either side for all the fans (and his dog :p)!
