PEOPLE are being urged to get into sport while keeping fit with a new indoor hockey programme launching in Bromsgrove.

Designed for adults of all abilities, whether in search of a different activity to get active this New Year or looking for a way to get back into the sport, indoor hockey is a fun way to experience the beloved British sport.

The pitch is smaller, the ball lighter, and you don’t have to be put off by bad weather ruining your fun!

This rewarding five-week indoor hockey programme commences on Wednesday 12th February at South Bromsgrove High School’s gymnasium. Sessions continue weekly through til 25th March, with break weeks in between on 4th & 18th March.

The first two weeks include introductory sessions from 7:00pm – 8:15pm (12th & 19th February) led by Bromsgrove Hockey Club’s coaches, to provide basic skills training and help grow your confidence on the ball.

Then every week enjoy sociable gameplay from 8:15pm – 9:30pm in mixed teams of 6 a-side to hone your abilities.

Register individually or join with friends and family, all ages (18-64+) and playing levels welcome. Each week players will be encouraged to mix teammates to provide the optimal experience for everyone involved.

Hockey sticks can be provided but we recommend shin pads and gumshields are worn along with suitable activewear and trainers.

The 5-week programme is just £20 (equivalent to £4 per week) for new members who register and pay before 5th February. To sign-up or for more information please visit our dedicated Facebook page -
