Quicksticks

Sport England has today announced significant investments into a number of sports as part of their new strategy for sport. As part of this investment, England Hockey has been awarded £9.03m for the four years from 2017-2021.
 
England Hockey Chief Executive Sally Munday said, “We are delighted with the continued support from Sport England and the National Lottery for hockey. We have worked closely with Sport England to articulate our plans to maximise the impact of Rio. The club game has seen huge growth - particularly at junior levels - on the back of medals at the last two Olympics. This is testament to the outstanding work of hockey clubs, schools and universities to help grow hockey and promote the sport to all ages and both genders.

“We are hugely ambitious about where we can take hockey in this country over the next decade, we are making great progress on broadening investment into the sport and with commitment from Sport England and UK Sport now in place we can look ahead to the next four years with confidence, starting with the launch of our new strategy in 2017.”
