Back to Hockey.
Alderley Edge Hockey Club were a pioneer for 'Back To Hockey' activities a few years back. The 'Back To Hockey' activity has grown with so many Women inspired by the Olympics wishing to return to the sport and a good number of women wanting to take up the game and 'Give it a Go'!

Do you miss it, want to be part of a team and help your fitness/well being? Come join us…
We’re well involved in England Hockey’s ‘Back to Hockey’ and 'Give ita Go' campaigns. Back to Hockey provides a gentle introduction or re-introduction to hockey. It’s open to women/girls of all ages whether you’ve played before or not.
We started this group last season is response to local demand with great success. We now have 55 mums signed up and between 20-30 turning up in the season each Monday at 8:00pm.
' Back To Hockey' offers women the chance to play hockey again by making it as easy as possible to take part; helping them relearn, refresh and replay the game and giving them opportunities to continue to play, whether for fun or as part of a competitive team.
'Back to Hockey' is designed to achieve this with a focus on fun, fitness and friendship. It is particularly aimed at women who currently do not play hockey but have played hockey before at school, college or university, or perhaps in a club or work team, and who we might be able to persuade play again. We also welcome new participants who have never played before.
'Back to Hockey' is about getting women to play hockey again in a relaxed and encouraging environment, with the emphasis on taking part, learning new skills (or relearning skills) and enjoying playing with others.
The activities and coaching provided cater for all levels of skill and fitness and avoid being highly competitive.
Anyone who’s played hockey knows the sport provides a great workout – burning calories, improving cardiovascular fitness and toning those all important female targets of thighs and bottom. The Alderley Edge Hockey Club's 'Back To Hockey ' sessions are incredibly popular with women looking for a fun, social way to get fit and stay in shape.
It's highly sociable, so come along and join in!
