This site hosts all the general info regarding the European Veteran Roller hockey Invitational Cup, an event to be held once a year (in the Spring or Autumn) throughout Europe to promote veteran roller hockey at its highest level. There are two categories, the well known 35+ tournament (since 2003) and the 50+ tournament (since 2009).
Welcome Suisse 35+
Delft - In Darmstadt (2010) and Castiglione della Pescaia (2010) the delegates of the participating veteran teams made the appointment that the EVRI Cup-circuit must grow to a maximum level of 16 teams of 35+ and 8 teams of 50+ . The extension must come from England, France and Suisse. That will give the event an even more international rollerhockey image.
Today we received the decision of the GENEVE RHC VETERANS to participate in the EVRI Cup edition (35+) in Sintra (Portugal), next 1,2,3 and 4 june 2011. In Sintra there are participating at last 8 nations : Italy, Belgium, Portugal, England, Spain, The Netherlands, Germany and Suisse !
Rob Verbeek, secretary of the I.E.C. : "We are very proud that the sportfriends of Geneve will participate during the next EVRICup edition in Portugal. Our next goal is the participation of teams from France and Austria. The EVRICup at this moment is growing to be the biggest international veteran rollerhockey event in Europe !"

On November 15, more than a month after the event in Castiglione della Pescaia, Phil gave the following comment: "I have had the plaster tasks off today. It's still sure but the doctors are happy with it. I have to go back in 4 or 5 weeks to get the final all clear. So hopefully I will start playing hockey again in January, next."
