Lord Coe's endorsement for our Club Weekend

Give it a Go on Olympic Park young people 450x261

Lord Coe gives his thoughts on the National Harvester Club Weekend 2013, and the idea of getting people involved with hockey at their local club.

"During 2012 the iconic blue and pink pitches and constant buzz from the Riverbank Arena in the north of the Olympic Park showed the British public just what a fantastic sport hockey is. It’s great to see England Hockey build on the enthusiasm of last year with their Harvester National Club Weekend - a chance for people to visit their local hockey club and try their hand at the game. Who knows, maybe some international hockey stars of the future will be discovered!"

Not only that, but some of our international players will be paying a visit to some of the clubs, so take a look at the table below to find out where you can meet the some of the best and brightest international hockey stars! The players could be there in the morning or the afternoon, so why not make a day of it to make sure you get a chance to meet them?

If you're not a hockey player, all the more reason to come along... Club Weekend is open to everyone from regular players to those who have never picked up a stick, and is open to all ages.

Taking up hockey is a great opportunity to make new friends and get regular exercise in a fun and sociable environment. And you'll love the satisfaction of scoring your first goal!
