WALKING HOCKEY: Good attendances for first sessions
Spalding Hockey Club’s Walking Hockey sessions have got off to a great start.
Since the first session, just after Easter, attendances have been around the 20 mark, with many making a return to the game after a break of several years.
The sessions are held on the excellent all weather pitch at Glen Park, Station Road, Surfleet (PE11 4DB) on Wednesdays from 10.30am-11.30 am. Adults of all ages who consider they would like to play the game at walking pace are welcome and sticks are provided if required.
There is a weekly charge of £5 per session to cover pitch hire and equipment costs.
The original plan was to run a six-week introductory course with the hope of continuing afterwards. Such has been the enthusiasm that these sessions will now continue weekly through the summer months.
Newcomers will be given tuition as necessary, depending upon their previous experience.
The group looks forward to the first-ever walking hockey mini tournament, to be held at Long Sutton Hockey Club, on Saturday, May 25, 10.30am.
New members are welcome, just turn up. Please contact Fred Morris email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
