Women urged to come back to hockey

THORNBURY Hockey Club is hoping to encourage women players of all backgrounds to return to the sport through ‘Back to Hockey’ sessions.

It is appealing to women who might have played at school or college, whatever their age, to give one of the adult sessions a try at the Castle School astro pitch.

Organisers promise it will be informal, sociable and a great way of improving your fitness.

A spokesperson said: “Do not worry if you are nervous about picking up a stick again, cannot remember or don’t know any of the rules. We promise it’s nothing like the old school days of muddy pitches and standing around waiting for a touch of the ball.”

The free sessions take place on Thursdays from 7pm to 8pm.
