Back To Hockey – Summer 2019

Summer 2019 is an exciting time for our sport with the new FIH Pro League bringing world class hockey to London during May and June with the GB men’s and ladies teams competing in this exciting new international league. England Hockey’s “Back to Hockey” initiative also returns – again supported by Vitality, the positively different health and life insurer, who are helping to develop grassroots hockey through their sponsorship of Back to Hockey.

Here at Winchmore Hill & Enfield Hockey Club, we welcome you to join us for our very own Back to Hockey / New to Hockey sessions for men, ladies and youth players (13+). This year we are running FREE sessions for people in the boroughs of Haringey and Enfield, starting on Saturday 29th June and running every week until Saturday 17th August 2019.

What is Back to Hockey?

Back to Hockey sessions are fun, social and informal and aimed at people who either have not played for a number of years or are looking to play for the first time. Do not worry if you are nervous or cannot remember any rules; our Back to Hockey coaches will gently guide you through this series of fun and friendly sessions. We promise it is nothing like the old school days of muddy pitches and standing around waiting for a touch of the ball! Our coached sessions will provide you with a great opportunity to learn/refresh your skills and play hockey with like-minded people in a friendly and relaxed environment.

What do you need to bring?

We have hockey sticks available for you to borrow so there is no need to go out and buy kit before you decide if you like it. Just come along in trainers or astroturf shoes if you have them. There are changing facilities, toilets and showers which you can use and, of course, we’ll be heading into our clubhouse for refreshments and more socialising if you would like to join us after your session!

How to register?
