East London Primary Schools Love Quicksticks!

Quickstick Festival 2015

Over 300 primary school children from across East London took part in the first ever England Hockey Quicksticks Festival at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park earlier this month. The event forms part of a Sport England and GLA funded four year programme to create a Community Where Hockey Matters.

The Unibet EuroHockey Championships are coming to East London in August and local children are being offered the opportunity to attend the event free of charge.

Charlie Farrow the event organiser was delighted, “We are grateful to many local colleagues especially school sector partners in Tower Hamlets, Newham and Waltham Forest, for supporting not only this event but the wider programme which will provide further opportunities to get many more young people and indeed adults playing and watching hockey”

Volunteers from four local clubs joined venue and England Hockey staff and young leaders from local schools in providing a wonderful showcase event which demonstrate the Hockey’s London 2012 Legacy is alive and kicking!
