Hockey is always looking for new ways to make the sport attractive and available to all sections of the community and Braintree Hockey Club have always been ready to try new formats of the game .
Walking Hockey is in it's infancy based on an idea by Bromsgrove Hockey Club and with the assistance from Active Braintree District Network we are running sessions at Braintree, aimed at people who for a variety of reasons cannot run around to play the game. The profiles of the types of people who may be interested in this format include:
Former players who have given up hockey due to age and /or injury.
People who have never played the sport before but were looking for a gentle sport to help recover from illness or injury.
People who have not played the sport for years who might be attracted to a new angle on a sport they like previously.
Older people looking for a walking sport.
People who want to improve fitness and reduce weight.
Even if you do not come into the category but want to have a go, you are welcome.
