About BHF

The Breda Hockeyfestival will be held this year for the 19th time during the Whitsun weekend (May 18-19-20 2018). We offer you and your team a weekend filled with field hockey, entertainment, proper food and awesome party’s!

Each year we welcome many field hockey teams from from the Netherlands and abroad. In terms of age, the average ages vary  from 18 to 35 years. The BHF attracts a wide variety of people with one common goal for the weekend: hockey and partying! The majority of the teams are from the netherlands however over the past years we have welcomed teams from belgium, England and France, hopefully we will welcome you and your team this coming year!

For three days, the Breda Hockey Festival guarantees a gastronomic adventure, good performances, quality food, nice opponents and entertainment. The 19th edition of the Hockey Festival promises to be very special one. Despite the term “festival”, the hockey matches are what the weekend revolves around! Obviously there is always a party going on on were you can enjoy a drink and practic your dance moves!

Male, female and mixed teams from different hockey levels are welcome. Friday evening we start off with a spectacular opening ceremony. Saturday and Sunday (daytime) are characterized by a good game of field hockey during which are treated with culinary delights and live entertainment. The party on Saturday can off course not to be missed, but that is obvious… Are you a real die-hard? Then the banging afterparty Sunday after the competitions and awards are there for you! After the great success of last year, this year’s afterparty will be in “Café Boerke Verschuren” (within walking distance of the festival grounds). Of course you can camp another night in your tent and leave on monday!

We hope to see your registration! Registration is possible from the 1st of february!
