The Cantebury Senior Teams attend the National Senior Tournament in September which currently runs alongside the National Hockey League.
In recent years the teams have created their own identities, with the Beavers (Men) and Barracudas (Women) becoming prominent names within the hockey community.
The Beavers headed to Wellington with the intent of bringing home the trophy that slipped from their grasp last year. After moving through their pool play and quarter-finals and semi-finals unbeate the Beavers came up against a strong North Harbour side in the final and were unable to bring home the coveted trophy, going down 0-3.
The Barracudas were also keen to go one better than their 2nd place last year. They finished 2nd in their pool but then lost their semi-final to North Harbour which put them in the bronze medal playoff. Another loss, this time to Tauranga/BOP saw the Barracudas head home in 4th spot.
