Doncaster Hockey Club are hoping to cash in on the interest in the sport generated by the recent televised European Championships.
Both the men’s team, captained by Doncaster-born Barry Middleton, and the women’s team, enjoyed successful tournaments and the club are hoping for a good turn-out for their Hockey Fest/Fun Day this weekend.
The event, to be staged at their Bennetthorpe base on Town Fields, will run from 1pm-5pm and is open to everyone of all ages and ability.
There will be various hockey-related activities throughout the afternoon, in addition to face painting, tombola/raffles and a BBQ and bar.
In addition to various coaching sessions throughout the week for both juniors and seniors, the club also run a popular mixed ‘Back to Hockey’ session every Monday at 7pm for people who wish to return to the game or who are new to the sport.
