Morpeth celebrate their pitch opening

England Hockey is well underway writing a National Facilities Strategy, and we need your help to ensure we get the right facilities in the right places for hockey.

The National Facilities Strategy will underpin the needs for hockey over the coming years, and it is important we understand the current state of the hockey stock. We anticipate there are approximately 500 pitches alone due for refurbishment.

As a sport we are only 17% asset owning, meaning we rely heavily upon 3rd party providers to allow us significant access to the facilities on which our sport is played. It will be important moving forwards we secure the future of a number of sites and this work will help us to help you.

Over the next few months we will be looking to collect a few pieces of information from all hockey clubs. A number of you will have already provided this information to your Regional Hockey office, but we still have quite a bit of information missing.

The templates below can be downloaded (NB make sure you click on the 2facilities tab at the bottom of the page to get started) and the information filled in and returned to your regional office. Alterntatively  you can answer the questions below and send back.
