Hockey sessions

Have your say

TWO-THIRDS of County Durham kids are inspired by sporting heroes to become more active, according to a new survey.

Now the Hockey Nation Give it a Go programme is going to Durham City Hockey Club, on Wednesdays from 7pm to 8.30pm, where they can test their skills.

Sally Munday, of GB Hockey, said says: “Having seen hockey participation increase over the past six months, we are determined to retain this growth and use the excitement of the 2012 Olympic Games to engage thousands more people in hockey.

“It will be an incredibly exciting and inspirational time and I am confident that with the enthusiasm of the amazing people involved in hockey, we are ready to welcome new fans to the sport.”
