2018 is an exciting year for the sport with the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast and the Vitality Hockey Women’s World Cup in London. Vitality, the business changing health and life insurance for good, are also helping to develop grassroots hockey through their sponsorship of Back to Hockey.

Our 2018 Back to Hockey campaign will be returning bigger and better than ever before and more details will be shared shortly. However it’s not just us who think Back To Hockey can be great for your club - here are some of the benefits you have told us about:

·More Club Players - 40 players have started to play regularly again in just 18 months (Prescot HC)
·More Casual Players - We can target players who just want to play for fun and do not want to commit to a club environment (Belper HC)
·Additional Income - The pitch is already booked for other teams and we are volunteers so all subs go straight into the club's funds (Wimbledon HC)
·Extra Publicity - It is an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of our family club in the local area (Gillingham Anchorians HC)
·New Volunteers - Around a dozen members have supported the sessions, which is great as it also helps promote the social side (Gillingham Anchorians HC)
