The area’s largest ever ball hockey tournament is set to take over the WFCU Centre’s parking lot this spring.

The Hearthwood Series Cup will take place Saturday May 31st and Sunday June 1st outdoors at the WFCU Centre on four street rinks with up to 100 teams competing.

The tournament has three divisions – Adult (Ages 17+), Youth (Ages 13-16), Youth (Ages 9-12). All divisions are co-ed.

“The Sport & Hobby Expo is the perfect opportunity to launch the Hearthwood Series Cup!” says Operations Manager, Michael Sourenian. “We are excited to have the ability to accommodate such a large number of competing teams of families, friends, and businesses.”

The Ball Hockey Tournament joins the Expo’s already impressive list of highlights including the Hockey Hall of Fame Legends Exhibit and Fanfest, Autograph Sessions, Hands-on Woodworking, NASCAR Tire Change Competitions, Yamaha Powersports Sale, Maximum Fighting Championship, and much more. With over 100,000 square feet of exciting sport and hobby exhibits, the Sport & Hobby Expo is one of the largest exhibitions ever held in Windsor.

We have a total fundraising goal of $50,000 to help support mentoring and coaching programs” says Event Producer Andrew Adam. “We are proud to offer such a great value to visitors, while also contributing to the community.”
