Bromsgrove’s Walking Sports Centre continues to march forward.
We now have 3 weekly sessions (2 hockey, 1 football) and after consultations with England Netball we will be launching Walking Netball in January 2020.
Additionally we are developing both Walking Cricket and Walking Tennis for a Spring 2020 launch.
We have also entered into an exciting partnership with Age UK and have the support of iCOPE and Reconnections. All 3 organisations have similar values to ourselves such as increasing the opportunities for our ageing population to remain active for longer.
Bromsgrove HC now holds 2 Walking Hockey sessions each week, one evening outdoor session at Bromsgrove Cricket Hockey & Tennis Club and one daytime indoor session at the Ryland Centre.

Here is our bold new logo which will change as more sports are added.
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.
