"

SURREY, BC – The City of Surrey and the Canadian Tire Wickenheiser Female World Hockey Festival (Canadian
Tire WickFest) invite members of the media to attend a luncheon and exhibition hockey game between India’s
National Female Hockey team and the Surrey Falcons. After years of hard work on and off the ice, and thanks to
special invitation from six-time Olympian Hayley Wickenheiser, the players from Ladakh, India will arrive in
Canada for the first time. The team, who overcame strong societal and familial pressures in an effort to grow the
game of women’s ice hockey in India, will compete in the ninth annual Canadian Tire WickFest. Before heading
to Calgary, the team’s first stop is in Surrey, where they will attend a media luncheon and play an exhibition
game.
