Felixstowe Hockey Club is running six weeks of free hockey sessions over summer to inspire the community to get active and encourage individuals to meet new people.
The ‘Back to Hockey’ programme is aimed at those who have not played for some time and would like to get back into it, as well as total beginners. The Back to Hockey sessions are a great way for anyone to get fit while socialising- and all for free.
The sessions, which welcome both men and women aged 13 and above, will run on Tuesday evenings for 6 weeks from 7pm-8pm at Felixstowe Academy, starting on the 9th July.
Sessions will be held by qualified coaches in a fun, social and informal manner with the aim of developing grassroots hockey and encouraging those who have previously played to return and pick up a stick. Current club members will also participate in the sessions in order to ensure that everyone feels welcome and a part of the hockey family right from the outset.
Keira Booty, who has now been a member of Felixstowe Hockey Club for 4 years, said “I used to play hockey for another club when I was at school and when I relocated to the Ipswich area, Felixstowe Hockey Club were my first choice of club because they were so welcoming. Since joining I have become a mum and my 20 month old girl is at the clubhouse every Saturday cheering me on and making new friends herself. I appreciate being able to continue to enjoy playing hockey and have some ‘me’ time, which I would not be able to do without Felixstowe Hockey Club being so hospitable. I would encourage everyone to come along and try it out- there is nothing to lose and everything to gain.”
Currently, Felixstowe Hockey Club has three men’s and three ladies teams who compete in a variety of leagues across Suffolk and East Anglia. The club also has a thriving youth section which takes over the all-weather pitch on Saturday mornings.
Felixstowe Hockey Club prides itself on being a family orientated organisation, welcoming all those young and old to join and spectate. The club holds regular social events for all ages with an open invitation to bring along friends and family.
