By Jawwad Qamar

New York: 59 Teams are set to compete in the 2022 Big Apple Memorial Six-a-Side tournament at the Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn on Saturday and Sunday during the Memorial Day weekend. Competition will take place in four divisions: Women, U-19 Girls, U-16 Girls and U-14 Girls.

The Big Apple Memorial Six-a-Side tournament is held every year to honor the memory of those field hockey lovers who are no longer with us. They all contributed to hockey and are missed by all.

The trophy for the U-16 and U-19 girls divisions is donated by Rosemary and Michael Serrette in the name of their beloved daughter, Michele, who passed away in 1983 at the very young age of nine, after getting hit by a ball while standing on the side lines watching her father play in a tournament in Trinidad. “She always loved to watch her father play,” said her mom, Rosemary. “We want to encourage the kids to play because they are the future of the sport and that is why we have dedicated this trophy in honor of Michele.”

The trophy for women competition is dedicated to:
