Why Hockey?

You may have never played hockey before but as the sport’s exposure in the media increases you may have thought it looks like a fun competitive sport to try. You may have tried hockey at school but not pursued playing in a club before. Or you may have terrible memories of hockey from school on a cold muddy pitch that bear little resemblance to the fun fast sport hockey is today.

We think hockey is great because:

It is a fast technical game. You can learn the basics quickly, but still be mastering your skills after decades of playing

It is fun and sociable team sport

Rolling substitutions help make it a tactical game and one where you can rest during the game, and re-enter the fray revived

It is played at all ages. You can start at 6 and still be playing, even at international level at 60 it is played equally by men and women. In addition to men's and ladies sides there are many social and competitive mixed sides. Hockey is a sport that has a mixed international teams. It can be played outdoors or indoors.
