Approximately 4,000 high school girls are participating in the National Hockey Festival, held in at the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington, Florida, this weekend. About 260 girl’s teams from all over the country have traveled to South Florida to compete in a tournament that started yesterday and runs through Sunday. Coordinators of the National Hockey Festival project a $9 million economic boost from the tournament.

In addition to the players, parents, friends, coaches and other fans of the sport will congregate in Wellington to support the girls. This is the second year the National Hockey Festival is hosted by the International Polo Club. Admission is free and six of the eight fields have been converted and split up into 30 pitches for the players.

A recent article in the Palm Beach Post, states, “The $9 million economic boost that organizers project the tournament will provide provides to Palm Beach County would make it comparable to those provided by other top sporting events — Wellington’s Winter Equestrian Festival and polo matches, The Honda Classic golf tournament in Palm Beach Gardens, the Champions Tour’s Allianz golf tournament in Boca Raton and spring-training baseball in Jupiter.” The economic benefits are great incentive for the County and local businesses to do everything possible to accommodate for the event.
