Quiet New Year? I don’t think so

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……………….

Amazing World Cup Experience

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.
