Funding Pitches/Projects

Hockey is played on pitches of varying ages and with many venues now looking to replace carpets it is critical to ensure that sufficient funding is in place for the next generation of hockey surfaces.
Sinking Funds
Sinking Funds are used to pay for large planned expenditure – by setting money aside, clubs can make regular contributions to ensure that they reach their goal of having sufficient funds for replacing a pitch over a given timescale.
