Tournament Info

The World Pond Hockey Championship was first held in Plaster Rock, New Brunswick in 2002. It was the first event of its kind to be held anywhere. The event was started as, and continues to this day as a fund raising event to help pay for the costs associated with the construction of a new recreation centre for the community. The new Tobique-Plex facility opened in November of 2007 and serves all age groups within the Tobique Valley region. 
From humble beginnings during that first ever event in 2002 that saw 40 teams compete, most of which were from New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Maine, the event has grown to feature 120 teams from around the world. Aside from the hundreds of hockey enthusiasts that travel to Plaster Rock each February to compete, the event attracts thousands of spectators and media from around the globe as well. The event is scheduled for the second full weekend in February each year.
