PHF Inter-Academy Hockey Tournament postponed


The PHF Inter-Academy Hockey Tournament, which was scheduled to be held at Sialkot Hockey Stadium from November 26 to December 10, has been pushed forward for about two weeks. The event will now be organised at the same venue from December 10 to 22 due to pre-occupation PHF Officials in the Champions Trophy in New Zealand.


  1. There is only one internationally recognized hockey academy in Lahore which was managed by the late legendary Captain of Pakistan Hockey team Munir Ahmad Dar. This academy is known as late legendary Tanvir Ahmad Dar hockey academy. He was the fearful penalty corner expert in the world during his days. Top penalty corner experts of the yesterdays like Paul Litjens, Michael Krause, Ties Krousie and Surjeet Singh said Tanvir Dar was the best in their autobiographies. Well now 1984 Olympic Gold Medalist Tauqeer Ahmad Dar son of Munir Dar and nephew of Tanvir Dar is managing the academy with out any assistance from PHF.Tanvir Dar academy even go to on international tours through small sponsorships by different departments and companies.The private companies financial support and personal contacts of late Munir Dar and Tanvir Dar help arranging those kind of outings and son Tauqeer Dar continues to work very hard to keep in touch with these contacts and shows personal committment to continue his Father and Uncle's cause of promoting the sport of Hockey in the country.I will suggest PHF to assist Tanvir Dar Hockey academy with some Financial aid in order for the management of the academy to continue peoducing the players for Pakistan Jr. and Senior teams.
