Hockeyfest @ Clumber Park

The Sport Development Team at Clumber Park have been in post for a couple of months and are busy organising lots of different sporting offers to their visitors. Currently they are planning their summer holiday programme where they will be running informal, fun sport challenges one of which they hope to be hockey.

They’ve recently hosted a very successful tennis event (as part of a national partnership with the LTA). Coaches from local clubs came along to Clumber to promote their clubs and have chats with visitors whilst they made their way round 8 or so tennis challenges e.g. how many times can you bounce a ball, or how many forehands can you hit over the net etc. It was a really good fun event which over 200 people took part in. The LTA used this to promote their Great British Tennis Weekend.

They will be duplicating this format with a number of different sports and would like to have some local clubs along when they run their hockey activities? They would love to have coaches or club volunteers at the event just to mix in with the visitors and promote what their clubs offer (and maybe recruit some new members!).

They hope to run the event around 5-6 times over the 7 week holiday so there will be a range of dates which hopefully one or more might work for people.
