Maddie Hinch attends #HockeyFest

Basingstoke HF

Basingstoke hockey Club were lucky enough to welcome Maddie Hinch to their HockeyFest where she met and chatted to juniors to adults. 

"Last year I was asked why you don’t give it a go, so me and my daughter Katie both started goalie training. When you watch something like our GB women win Gold at an Olympics you just think, wow we are doing that! Obviously not on that level but just to even call yourself a hockey player, it's inspiring. Watching Maddie in the shoot out was unreal."

"Basingstoke is a brilliant club! We are no where near the same level as some of the goalies at the club but they are very kind and help us develop which is great. The fact Maddie has turned up at our #HockeyFest is incredible. Olivia couldn’t sleep for two days!"

Mum Hayley and her twin daughters, Olivia and Katie were very excited to meet Maddie and her gold medal. "I love coming to events like these, chatting to the kids. I have had a busy day but I have been looking forward to this all day." Maddie beamed.
