We Need You

TAP banner
The biggest challenge to hockey development in West Africa is a huge lack of equipment. It is not uncommon for players not to have their own sticks and teachers regularly have to deliver to classes of 40+ children with less than 10 useable sticks!

This is where we hope you can help.
With the support of Barrington Sports, England Hockey are asking the hockey family to donate any unwanted hockey sticks, shin pads and goal keeping equipment to Africa. To help spread the message please like our Facebook page and use #HockeyKit4TheWorld on Twitter and Instagram.

Stick collections

  • Are you treating yourself to a new stick this season?
  • How many sticks do you have tucked away in the garage? 
  • Has your child outgrown another stick?
Why not give your stick a new life and give someone else the opportunity to play?

At every England Hockey event there will be donation buckets situated outside the England Hockey Shop so bring your old sticks along. If your club or school think that you could organise your own collection for a number of sticks, please contact Lucy Rowe by emailing her at lucy.rowe@englandhockey.co.uk to discuss logistics.

High Performance
With the support of Gullivers Travels, the Ghanaian women’s national team will be coming to England for two weeks in August for a training camp and fixtures in preparation for the African Cup of Nations in October.
If any clubs are interested in arranging some friendly fixtures with the Ghanaian ladies please contact lucy.rowe@englandhockey.co.uk.
