We have a Bavarian themed night planned in on Saturday the 28th of October to tie in with Oktoberfest!  We have a Bavarian band on at the Henhurst for an Oompah night! It will be £10 per ticket, but totally worth it!

If you are interested in buying a ticket please let me know either on my facebook or 07728744566, or you can contact your captains!

Money can be paid into the club account (please put a recognisable reference) or cash/cheque. 

Thanks

For those of you who may have missed the action...you missed some outstanding hockey -

Big news is that England beat Germany! not just once but twice in two days - bronze medals for both the women and the men. Some very unhappy looking Germans, and quite a few female tears, at the final whistle.

After an unconvincing start in the pool games, England men improved dramatically in the semis and final - actually dominated Holland for half a game before giving a couple of soft goals through unforced errors, and in the final came back impressively from a goal down to win 4-2. Some great goals.

The women played excellently and were unlucky to lose to Holland 0-1 in the semis. Then outplayed the Germans in the final, having lost to them in the pool.

Have to say that there's little obvious relation between the hockey played by these guys and the game we played in days of yore...

Highlights/goals should be available here - https://www.eurohockeytv.org/

Well Done to our Ball Patrol volunteers Tom Shenton, Sarah Louise, Elin Mills, Elizabeth Snelling, Sophie Carlton-Greaves and Megan Ridley who have been helping out at the U16 and U18 International Tournament taking place at Highfields at Beeston this week. Some brilliant hockey on display to inspire our young players!!

 

Vijay is Inviting us all to a free Fitness Challenge!
On August the 19th, a group of us from Burton Hockey Club (and my mum) will be running 5K down at Rosliston Forestry Centre at 09:00. It's a free run, organised by some top volunteers and would be a great challenge to aim to complete, especially tying in with some preseason fitness. How fast do you have to be? Times last week ranged from 18-58 minutes where 218 people took part.
Like this comment to show your interest, it would be great to get a good turnout and get as many people involved too!
