On Tuesday 22 October 2019 we launched our brand new Walking Sports Centre here in Bromsgrove, England. We have added Walking Football to our Walking Hockey groups and are working on Walking versions of Tennis, Cricket, Basketball and Netball. We will feature news on these developments here alongside our Walking Hockey news.
We now offer two Walking Hockey sessions a week here in Bromsgrove, England. This week we added a daytime session to our well established Monday evening group.
We had 14 players come along including 7 brand new players.
Our two sessions are now:
Mondays 7.30-8.30pm Thursdays 10.30-11.30pm
The latest information from England Hockey is that over 50 clubs in England are playing or have tried Walking Hockey – and we hear of new clubs regularly. We are very proud of how our sport is taking off.
Yesterday we were contacted by people in both Japan and Canberra, Australia asking how to get Walking Hockey started – amazing! Thank you folks.
Our new Walking Sports Centre in Bromsgrove goes live on Tuesday 22 October, 10.30am with Walking Football. This ambitious project has had great support from many parties.
