Increasing in popularity, Walking Hockey is perfect for players who are looking for a less physically demanding version of the game but still enjoy showing their skills and being involved in the team and social aspect.
Walking Hockey is exactly as the name suggests - you play Hockey, walking. It’s designed to help people keep an active lifestyle regardless of age, health and ability, as well as getting those back into hockey who had to stop due to injuries or other reasons.
As well as the health benefits associated with most forms of physical activity; keeping fit and active, weight loss etc there are also many social health benefits that come with playing Walking Hockey. Taking time to socialise, meet new people or even build confidence are all part and parcel of taking part in this version of the game.
Swindon Hockey Club launched their Walking Hockey sessions as part of the SHC100 project to mark the Club's centenary in the 2019/20 season.
New players are always welcome. Come and join us at our Walking Hockey sessions on Monday evenings, 7-8pm at The Deanery CE Academy, Wichelstowe. No experience necessary. The club has equipment for these sessions thanks to our Sport England Lottery Funding. All you'll need to take part is a pair of training shoes - we have sticks that you can borrow. You might want to wear shin guards as well.
Please see the Membership Information section for more details on joining the club.
