About the Hockey Section
The Hockey section has been running for a number of years, over which it has experienced varying degrees of success. Most notably would be the addition of our own pitch at the Clubhouse. This is a testament to many years of hard work and dedication, behind the scenes, by a team of committed individuals, both on and off the pitch.
The Hockey section is currently in the best position it has ever been in currently running the following
4 Ladies, 3 Menís, 4 Junior, 2 Mixed and 1 Vets team
The club is always looking for new players of all ages, abilities and experience; donít worry if you have never picked up a stick before we welcome complete beginners, please get in touch now! And give it a try
the club will be running informal Hockey sessions aimed at men, women and children who are looking for a great way to stay in shape and have some fun in a team environment without needing to commit to on-going regular training and competition schedules. The campaign is backed by England hockey board, the sports official national governing body.
We are a very friendly, highly successful, family orientated club with a packed social calendar throughout the year for all the family

The club has successfully brought through a number players into the senior sides, county and national teams and want this to continue, we are delighted to announce that starting in September 2013 the club are excited to be launching 4 new satellite centres at different venues across East Lancashire where boys & girls 6-16yrs will be able to attend, all this is thanks to the Backing and support of Blackburn Rovers Football Club Premier League 4 Sport project, The innovative Premier League 4 Sport (PL4S) project started in September 2009 and has helped tens of thousands of young people get involved in sport in their local community.
Delivered by the Premier League, Sport England and the Youth Sport Trust sees Premier League Clubs acting as a hub linked to community sports facilities, which in turn are linked to local secondary schools to create satellite sports centres, to find out more about the centres and junior opportunities please click on the juniors section
