Rush Hockey has arrived in Burton on Trent!

It’s fast, it’s furious, the new era of hockey has arrived. Do you crave the rush of a team sport, but can’t find the time to commit to one? Now there’s a game that fits around your hectic lifestyle! East Staffordshire Borough Council’s – Sport Development Team are excited to introduce the new game “Rush Hockey”.

The taster sessions will inject excitement and adrenaline back into the lives of local hockey players and non hockey players throughout the summer.

The Rush Hockey sessions will take place, every Wednesday evening between Wednesday 3rd July and Wednesday 7th August 2013. The sessions take place between 6.30pm and 7.30pm at Shobnall Leisure Complex. The sessions are open to everyone over the age of 16.

Developed by the England Hockey Board (EHB), Rush Hockey is set to attract a new generation of player. Not only will it welcome all abilities but past and present, male and female hockey players will enjoy the thrill of the new format, in the way that hundreds of recreational players have become hooked on 5 a-side football.

Councillor Bernard Peters, Deputy Leader for Service Commissioning, said: “Rush Hockey is just what people in Burton need to remind them how much fun the sport can be. It’s a great way to play whether you are new to the sport or play regularly. It tackles lack of space and time with 40 minute games. It smashes through fitness worries with smaller pitches and can be played indoors or outdoor and with much smaller numbers than the traditional game”.

Rush Hockey is furiously fast, fun and simple to play. If you would like to come and feel the Rush please come and join us. The games will be played outdoors please wear suitable clothing, hockey sticks will be provided.
