Mid-Summer Sixes – 23rd June 2018
While it’s not quite the world cup, you could be a champion this summer by taking part in our Summer Sixes tournament. Held on the MUGA at the clubhouse (Fords Grove, N21 3ER) from 7pm, this is the perfect antidote to the off season blues. It’s also the perfect opportunity to bring your ‘member get member’ target down to the club to enjoy a casual introduction to the game. This tournament is open to anyone regardless of experience – we will have spare sticks available to borrow. Enter a team or just come along as an individual!
If you have any questions or would like to register your interest in taking part get in touch today firstname.lastname@example.org – we look forward to hearing from you!
Spectator Village – 21st July 2018
After England’s opening match (or for it, if you don’t have tickets!) We will be gathering in the spectator village in the Olympic Park. The village is free to enter for the duration of the tournament and England Hockey will be giving spectators a chance to meet the players. Where better to watch the national team than with your hockey family?

You could even use it as a fitness target as the season starts!
Local Festivals – throughout September
This summer’s recruitment drive continues at a number of local festivals across the borough including Palmers Green Festival (3rd September) and Enfield Town Festival (23rd September).
These events are a great way to get our name known in the local community and recruit new members across the section. They are always enjoyable and if the sun shines- even more so!
It would be great if as many members as possible could give up an hour or two to come down and show what a friendly club we are.
