Welcome to Walking Hockey World – from the home of Walking Hockey -Bromsgrove Hockey Club

Every so often an idea comes along that fits the time, and we believe Walking Hockey is one such idea. Born out of someone wanting to keep playing but finding regular hockey too much, it has really taken off.

On the website find out how Walking Hockey went from an idea to a reality in a few months and how it is now attracting attention across the hockey World.

We have Walking Hockey photos and videos to share and will let you see how its appeal seems universal, from teenagers to nearly octogenarians!

For starters here is a video explaining how we got going and where we hope to get to. It features Alan Gormley, the founder of Walking Hockey and John Inverdale, the well known sports broadcaster.

Bromsgrove Walking Sports Centre

Bromsgrove’s Walking Sports Centre continues to march forward.

We now have 3 weekly sessions (2 hockey, 1 football) and after consultations with England Netball we will be launching Walking Netball in January 2020.

Additionally we are developing both Walking Cricket and Walking Tennis for a Spring 2020 launch.

We have also entered into an exciting partnership with Age UK and have the support of iCOPE and Reconnections. All 3 organisations have similar values to ourselves such as increasing the opportunities for our ageing population to remain active for longer.
