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’s Walking Hockey Family strolled back in to action last night – Monday 9 September with four new people coming to join us.
Over 20 people played in two groups, those that are very competitive and those who are less so. It was a great session.
Today was meant to be a quiet day on the Walking Hockey front. I’m glad to say it’s been anything but.
We have been contacted and in touch with people from Denmark, Australia, Uganda, Kenya, South Africa, the Netherlands and several clubs in the U.K.
It’s brilliant to see the continued growth of and interest in our great sport !
Bromsgrove’s Walking Hockey Family are taking a short break to recharge.
We take a break after our 5th August session (after the cake!!) then restart Monday 9th September, 7.30-8.30pm, at Bromsgrove Cricket, Hockey and Tennis Club.
The new season is on the horizon!!
Bedford Hockey Club‘s hugely successful Walking Hockey returns for the new season. Bedford Hockey Club is a family-friendly club, in Queen’s Park, Bedford
Walking Hockey is low impact, so suitable for a wide age-range, and fantastic when high impact, faster activity is simply unattractive, or too challenging (possibly due to illness or injury). It is, also, a great way for those new, or returning, to hockey to have a go, with a view to moving on to playing mainstream hockey – looking to join the junior or veterans ends of the Club, or one of the 14 senior sides.
Above all, it is great fun, with much laughter, and sessions finish with Tea and Cake in the Club House.
Regular participants can join the Club, as an Associate Member (£55), for open participation in all Walking Hockey sessions throughout the season (to the end of March) or simply turn up and pay-as-they-play (£5 per session).
There are plenty of sticks available to use. Own shin guards recommended, but not essential.
Just Turn Up for a guaranteed warm welcome
