There was fun to be had for players of all ages at Newmarket Hockey Club’s annual open day on Sunday.
Players both young and old took to the artificial surface at Newmarket Leisure Centre for a packed day of skills, drills and fun challenges.
In the morning dozens of young players were put through their paces by junior coach, and current men’s first team player Alex Andreou, while the afternoon saw a full scale mixed game take place featuring players the past, current and future all getting involved.
Running alongside both the training session and the match was a series of fun challenges including beat the goalie and penalty flick contests.
“The day run very smoothly and was a great success with lots of new faces giving great feedback and becoming members of the club,” said Chris Routs, club chairman.
“Special thanks must go out to The New Astley Club for their promotion and attendance, England Hockey, ICENI Water, Mr Hockey and Newmarket Leisure Centre for supporting the day.”
