HockeyFest is all about the social side of Hockey, hockey players across the country have informed us that having a friendly and social club is a key influence in their playing experience. Supported by Notts Sports, HockeyFest is open to everyone and is a great opportunity for clubs to develop some club unity and enjoyment in the build up to the start of their season.

After Great Britain's Gold medal in Rio, HockeyFest is the place to be! Whether it’s as a hockey house showing live hockey, through to engaging with your existing players and encouraging new participants in a family and social day this is a great opportunity to show just how friendly, welcoming and social your club and hockey is.
