It’s a big year for hockey in the UK – and HockeyFest is back for 2018.

Make the most of a World Cup summer

HockeyFest is a great opportunity for hockey clubs to open their doors to the community and showcase what they’re all about. With the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup hosted in London this summer, there is sure to be a spike in interest and your club should be prepared to fully capitalise.

Now in its fourth year, HockeyFest routinely sees over 300 clubs hosting events nationwide. 23,500 players attended their local HockeyFest in 2016, and over 2500 of them were new to the sport – while 89% of clubs said they saw a positive impact and 97% said they would take part again

Hockey has something for everyone

HockeyFest is focused on the friendly and social side of hockey, with new and existing players alike all invited. There is something for everyone, whether that’s joining a junior section, being a parent coming back to the sport or volunteering. Hockey is one of the few sports – sadly – that is split equally between men and women, a highly inclusive sport that welcomes all ages and abilities – while many clubs see multiple generations playing together.

It makes perfect sense to take this chance to showcase the game of hockey, to showcase what your club is all about, and – crucially – to attract new members and players. If you register your event on the Your World Cup portal by 2nd July you’ll be in with a chance of receiving an exclusive HockeyFest pack – and you can also access free marketing and promo materials including posters and top tips.
