I’m Still Not Sure Hockey/Nottingham Players is Right for Me
That’s OK. We know that playing a sport is a commitment in time and money, and we know it is sometimes hard from initial impressions to judge whether a club will have the right feel and opportunities for you. We would invite you to get in touch via our enquiry form if you have any questions or concerns. You can also come along to one our training sessions to have a look around, meet some of the other players and have a go before you need to commit yourself to signing up.
Here’s why we think you will….
You may have never played hockey before but as the sport’s exposure in the media increases you may have thought it looks like a fun competitive sport to try. You may have tried hockey at school but not pursued playing in a club before. Or you may have terrible memories of hockey from school on a cold muddy pitch that bear little resemblence to the fun fast sport hockey is today.
We think hockey is great because:
It is a fast technical game. You can learn the basics quickly, but still be mastering your skills after decades of playing
It is fun and sociable team sport
Rolling substitutions help make it a tactical game and one where you can rest during the game, and re-enter the fray revived
It is played at all ages. You can start at 6 and still be playing, even at international level at 60 (we have members in their 70s!!)
It is played equally by men and women. In addition to mens and ladies sides there are many social and competitive mixed sides. Hockey is a sport that has a mixed international team
It can be played outdoors or indoors
Visit England Hockey for more information on the game.
