Tring Hockey Club is looking to build on a memorable season which saw the ladies first XI and men’s second XI both winning promotion.

The club’s reputation throughout the age ranges was reinforced with a number of men representing their country at over 50 or above, and junior players making the most of development opportunities at county level.

With the new season about to start, the club is on the lookout for players and volunteers to help develop the club further.

The club’s Chris Hartley said: “We are on the hunt for players of all ages, from seven to 75+, and of all abilities.

“With five mens teams including vets and super vets squads and three ladies teams there is plenty of opportunity for anyone wanting to play.

“We also run a junior section for players aged seven and up, who train every Sunday morning at Tring School astroturf and play in a number of tournaments throughout the year.

“The colts section, for school Year 9 and above, trains on a Wednesday night and we run a number of age-based teams for them.

“In addition, we have brought in professional coaches at every training session we run this year to help develop those skills further.

“It promises to be an exciting season, so why not give hockey a try? You are never too young or old to start and if you haven’t played hockey for a while, then simply dust off your hockey stick and get hitting those balls.

“Of course, it is not all about sport. The club also has a vibrant social life with events planned through the season. And of course after the match, the teams head back to the clubhouse to discuss the finer points of the game over some food and drink.”
