TOURING

In keeping with the Jokers' tradition of maintaining a "healthy social element" to their hockey, the VRC Jokers Club has toured the world extensively.  In fact, Jokers were the first overseas team to play in Cuba, Colombia, Tobago and Taiwan.

From the formation of the club in 1964, the Jokers wasted no time and began travelling the world in 1966. So much is the Jokers' touring tradition that a special International Touring Side was formed, known as Jokers International. Since 1985, Jokers International has attended all but one of the Golden Oldies Festivals.
