February 20, 2012…. Ksh. 40,000. That is the amount that the Kenya Hockey Union wants Greensharks Hockey Club – one of the oldest self-supporting clubs in Kenya – to pay to use the City Park Hockey stadium for two days.

And not only that; the amount must be paid upfront before any person sets foot at the stadium.

Greensharks have been planning the tournament (Greensharks David Olalo’s (Patron) memorial Hockey Tournament)  to honor its club patron, who passed on in a tragic road accident in December 2011.

The demands by the union has now forced the self-supporting club to change the venue of the tournament to the less expensive Barclays Sports Club along Thika road.Though having a murram surface, the club has better and cleaner facilities than the run-down city park stadium.
