DROITWICH Spa Hockey Club have been rolling out different forms of the sport over the summer to attract players.

Since May they have been growing back to hockey and walking hockey.

Droitwich have benefited from extra sticks and balls sent by England Hockey.

New participant Nicky Jones said: “I have always wanted to play hockey but never wanted to play on a full pitch and the reduced size of the pitch has allowed me to play a sport I have not played since school in a fun way and allowed me to increase my fitness."

Another new convert Simon Denby said: “Other family members are already playing hockey and so it seemed the perfect time to join as I had already played on the grass. It helps me with fitness as I compete in other sports including triathlon."
