Another Successful Easter Tournament

This year’s Easter 7s Charity hockey tournament was a big success raising over £800 for Chestnut Tree House and acting as a fabulous ambassador for how much fun hockey is. 

The day was not only hugely entertaining, supported by current WHC members and hockey players but by visiting teams, friends and family who were all not turned off by the autumnal Easter weekend weather.

Hockey is a fantastic sport and our hockey family welcomed in two new converted hockey players who picked up sticks for the first time on the day to play! We look forward to seeing them join us next season. 

See you all next year!

U16 Boys through to Sussex Cup Final

Crowborough Junior Festival 16th October

14639645_10157549939380153_3999015708426602147_nWorthing entered a mixed U10 and U12 boys team at Crowborough 6-a-side junior hockey festival on Sunday 16th October. Both teams did fantastically well finishing in fourth position out of twelve teams entering each age group.  This was a great effort considering most had never played a competitive hockey game before.

The mixed side notched notable wins against East Grinstead A, Eastbourne B and Crowborough B. James picked up the man-of-the-match award and team sweets.

The U12 boys side had an excellent result against Lewes and a win over the hosts! Seb was man-of-the-match.

U10s: Sam, Daisy, Oliver, Fraser, James

U12s: William, Seb, Oaklee, Oliver, Fraser, James

Thanks to Crowborough Hockey Club for a really well organised and enjoyable event.

Amsterdam Junior Tour

Inspire Sport once again provided the infrastructure and support for the juniors hockey trip to Amsterdam over the bank holiday weekend and half term 29th May – 1st June.

The team of 13 juniors enjoyed a combination of training, matches and organised trips into the city as well as some free time for chilling out and enjoying the atmosphere.  Many thanks to the organisers and the 7 parents who supported the trip.

The two matches resulted in 1 win and 1 loss but the standard of hockey was high and challenging for all who took part.  Often training is less exiting but the opportunity to watch the GB ladies team in their morning warm up session before the international against Netherlands was an unexpected surprise.

The organised trips to the Van Gogh museum and Body World perhaps held more interest for the adults but kept everyone interested during the remainder of the tour.  A chance meeting for one of the team with Michael Portillo (who was on a city tour) was a shock and he may not have been recognised if he wasn’t wearing bright red trousers and a yellow linen jacket!

Golf Day 11th June 2016
