We are pleased to announce the winner of the 10 England tickets for the best event is .. St Ives hockey club on the out skirts of Cambridge.

As part of Your World Cup campaign we ran a competition to win 10 England tickets for the best event idea. We shortlisted ten events and we got some of the England Athletes, including Captain Alex Danson to pick the winner.
Alex said; ‘It is amazing to see how many amazing events clubs are hosting, where they are embracing the World Cup fever. It was a tough decision but we decided St Ives as the winner as it sounds like a great event that can really showcase hockey in the local community.’

On 29th of July St Ives HC will be attending 'Sports Festival in the Park' with the aim to increase visibility and promote the activities at the club. 

‘As England will be playing in the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup that day, we will use this as a catalyst to encourage people to come and talk to us.’ 

The club continued; ‘We will offer free come and try it with an assault course and target scrim and promote free taster sessions at the club for anyone who is introduced to us at the Festival.’

St Ives Hockey Club Chairman, Julia Jones said; 'The home World Cup this summer is such an exciting event for Hockey and as a small town club, we were keen to get as involved as possible to bring the event to the local community!'

'Winning the 'BIG IDEA's' competition is such an exciting achievement for us. At SIHC we try to offer something for everyone and this is a chance for us to reward all our fabulous volunteer coaches who make that possible.'
