BACK to Hockey sessions are back for 2019 with sessions starting on Wednesday evenings.

Start date is May 15, 7pm to 8pm, running for five weeks. The cost is £3 per session. Please meet at Down Grange Astro turf pitch at 6.45pm.

These friendly sessions are aimed primarily at those adults who have not picked up a stick in a while, but also open to anyone who fancies just giving it a go, everyone is welcome.

If you have been thinking about taking up hockey, then this is the ideal opportunity. We’ll have sticks and balls available to use, and friendly and experienced coaches on hand to give you tips and advice, so all you need to do is bring yourself and wear clothes you’d normally be comfortable exercising in.

The timing is good as our normal club training will begin in August so this really is the perfect starting point.

Several ladies and gents have progressed from taking part in Back to Hockey sessions in previous years and are now regulars on the pitch representing Basingstoke Hockey Club.
