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 here.
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’s a short video clip from a recent Walking Hockey session. It’s so good to hear laughter on the pitch.
We were looking forward to a nice break over a Christmas but some very exciting projects have raised their head.
The Netherlands Walking Football organisation have been in touch and they want to present Walking Hockey to the Dutch Hockey Body. We’ve provided them with lots of help. Really great to hear from them.
Watch this space for some incredibly exciting news – but it’s very very secret at the moment……………….
Where to start?

We had an amazing day out the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup in July.
42 club members joined us for the coach journey to the National Hockey Stadium on the site of the 2012 Olympic Park in London where we put on an exhibition match. This was attended by the Development Director for hockey in the USA, the Chair of England Hockey amongst others. The video below gives a flavour of the day.
We also watched two excellent matches – Belgium v Japan and New Zealand v Australia.
Our trip and kit was part funded by Brewin Dolphin, One Sports Warehouse and Chris Bloore from Bromsgrove Council. Many thanks to you all.
