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.
This Monday we were honoured to welcome Ulster Hockey who flew over to see what Walking Hockey is all about. They very much enjoyed both playing and watching. It won’t be long before Walking Hockey is being played in Ireland.
This week we have received news that Hockey Ulster, part of Hockey Ireland, will be coming over to see us. They are really interested in Walking Hockey, Back To Hockey and how we are growing as a club.
Also, Hockey Germany are very interested indeed!
Wow! Some fantastic news arrived in our inbox on Friday 26 January 2018. The World Governing Body of hockey published an article about Walking Hockey under their Global Projects initiative.

On Monday 15 January some of the founder members of our Walking Hockey group joined the players for a celebratory Walking Hockey session followed by cake and drinks in the bar. Roll on Year 2!
Can you believe it? We are ONE YEAR OLD!
So much has happened in the past twelve months. It is still difficult to understand how a sport set up for 10-15 people here in Bromsgrove has over 20 clubs playing in England, several in Wales and is live in Australia and New Zealand too.
Over the next few weeks we will be recalling some of the many highlights but for now we’d like to thank everyone who has made this possible and invite you all to join us for birthday cake on Monday 15 January, 8.15pm in the clubhouse at Bromsgrove Cricket Hockey and Tennis Club.
