5 months ago By Sarah Powell

We're always looking to welcome new players and the summer is a great time to try out a new club.

Whether your young, old, experienced or new, the summer is a great time to find and try out a new club. It gives you the chance to scope out the kind of club you're joining and also the kind of training, development opportunities. Bournville are always looking to welcome new players. Below is a summary of the opportunities to get involved over the summer.

Summer Leagues for Men and Women
Over the summer we are running summer league matches and we welcome new player involvement. See our club calendar to see the dates. The ladies play at King Edward's Girls School, Park Vale entrance (B5 7SP) on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7pm- 8:30pm against other local clubs. Please email Sarah Powell if you'd like a game (recruitment@bournvillehc.co.uk). The men play also play at King Edward's Girls School for home matches and travel locally for away matches. Lifts are available if you don't drive. Contact Dan Mcconaghy to find out more (dan@a6n.co.uk)

Back to Hockey 2017

Thinking of getting back into hockey? Or trying it for the first time? Looking for a club in Birmingham but want to try us out first?
Back to Hockey is for everyone, from beginners who have never picked up a hockey stick before, to those who have been away from the game for a while and want to shine up their rusty hockey skills. You’ll have the opportunity to get a bit fitter, learn new hockey skills and play hockey in a fun and sociable environment.
Bournville Hockey Club is hosting sessions on:

Tuesday 18th July
Tuesday 25th July
Tuesday 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd August

Please meet at 6:30pm for a 6:45pm start at the bottom AstroTurf pitch at King Edward VI High School for Girls, Park Vale entrance (B5 7SP).

Your first two sessions are absolutely FREE to see if it’s for you. After that sessions are £2 each.
We will have hockey sticks available for people to borrow but we recommend you bring shin pads with you. Wear clothes suitable for sport, and trainers or astroturf shoes if you have them. A drinks bottle is a good idea too for a quick drink during the session.

The sessions will be for two weeks - Tuesday 16th and Tuesday 23rd May between 6:30 and 7:30pm at King Edwards School for Girls.

The Head Coach will be England O55 player, Adrian Bailey. The sessions will be fun and aimed at developing young players. Sticks will be available to borrow. Both new and current youth players welcome.
