We are pleased to announce that we are launching walking hockey at Westbury.

No limitation on age, gender or ability but a great opportunity for anyone to extend their playing “careers” at a gentler pace or to return to hockey after a bit of a lay off.

Starts Tuesday 3rd December at Golden Hill 7.30 – 8.30 pm and every Tuesday thereafter.

No match fee in December, £5 per session will be charged when we resume early in January after the Christmas break.

Please bring usual hockey kit but if you no longer own a stick we’re sure that plenty will be available to borrow if required.

The format for the hour long session will be:-
1) a (very) gentle warm up.
2) some skills coaching (rediscovering skills of long ago)
3) 3 or 4 a side matches (no running!) on reduced size pitches.
4) have fun and enjoy ourselves playing the game we’ve always loved but now at a slower pace.

In addition the Beehive just down the road has been lined up for drinks afterwards.

We will be setting up a separate walking hockey membership database but in the meantime, in order that we may gauge likely numbers for the first few sessions, please either text or email Dave Holliday (07979728156 or dbholliday@btinternet.com) if you would like to attend or if you have any questions about the above.

The concept of walking hockey was started by Bromsgrove Hockey Club a couple of years ago and has become tremendously popular all over the country.  There’s loads of information on the web so please check it out.  At Westbury we are extremely proud to be the first club in the Bristol area to play it.
