Last summer, Great Britain’s women’s hockey team thrilled the nation with their wonderful victory at the Rio Olympic Games and sowed the seeds of a legacy that could last for years to come. At HockeyFest 2017, clubs across the UK will open their doors to celebrate all things hockey with their local community to get the new season underway.

Sign ups are now open for a season of events that will run from August 19th to September 10th.

HockeyFest – a successful and positive event

HockeyFest is now in its third year, and last summer saw over 300 clubs hosting events nationwide to hugely positive reviews. 23,500 players attended their local HockeyFest 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.

It is a chance to showcase the game of hockey, to showcase what your club has to offer and to attract new members and players.

Organisers and national governing body England Hockey will support your event with resources, decorations, top tip guides – while some lucky clubs will receive a visit from an international player!

Sign up now!

Research tells us hockey players believe having a friendly and sociable club is key to their playing and training experiences. Supported by Notts Sports, HockeyFest is open to anyone and everyone and represents a great opportunity for your club to showcase to the community what it has to offer, and to foster more camaraderie in the build up to the start of the hockey season.

You can sign up here – get involved!
