Club Day – Sunday 8th September

We hope you’re all looking forward to Club Day, which this year is being held on Sunday 8th September. It will be a great opportunity to catch up with teammates and meet some new faces, as well as getting in a bit of game time before league matches are upon us!

There will be fun 7-a-side games for all abilities – please try and bring along both white and blue shirts so we can easily mix up teams. The pitch at Oxford Brookes has been booked for the following times, so make sure you come along early enough to get warmed up and ready to go.

– Ladies: 12.30-2.30pm (meet at 12.00)

– Mixed: 2.30-4pm (anyone is welcome to join in)

– Men: 4-6pm

A BBQ will be running all afternoon and our kit supplier, Onhand Sports, will be there with kit samples to try on and order. Gumshields can also be purchased from FirstLine mouthguards, who will be at Brookes from 11.30-1.30 to take impressions. Pre-ordering is essential – more details are available here and the order form can be downloaded here.

New members are very welcome: this is a great opportunity to try out the club and meet our captains and coaches. If you’re new to hockey, or looking to get back into the game, this is the perfect time to give it a go in a fun and relaxed setting – just get in touch via our Join us form.
