Field hockey is extremely popular in Circular Head,
Smithton has a first class AstroTurf field catering for local and state competitions. Other improvements include the installation of an electronic scoreboard and extending the covered spectators area. The facility is managed by Smithton Turf Incorporated, a volunteer organisation.
Although a predominantly winter sport, with local competition games played from April to September each year, there is also a summer roster with fewer teams. The summer roster is generally run on a non-competitive basis.
Circular Head also has senior men’s, women’s and underage hockey teams that compete in the Greater Northern and North West leagues.
