Midlothian's hockey club...

Eskvale Hockey Club are proud to announce that we will be the first club in Scotland to offer Walking Hockey on a weekly basis.  These sessions will take place outdoors at our home pitch from 7:30pm on Tuesday 4th June 2019 and are completely free for the whole of June.  All you'll need to take part is a pair of training shoes - we have sticks that you can borrow.  You might want to wear shin guards as well.

Increasing in popularity, Walking Hockey is perfect for players who are looking for a less physically demanding version of the game but still enjoy showing their skills and being involved in the team and social aspect.

Walking Hockey is exactly as the name suggests - you play Hockey, walking. It’s designed to help people keep an active lifestyle regardless of age, health and ability, as well as getting those back into hockey who had to stop due to injuries or other reasons.

As well as the health benefits associated with most forms of physical activity; keeping fit and active, weight loss etc there are also many social health benefits that come with playing Walking Hockey. Taking time to socialise, meet new people or even build confidence are all part and parcel of taking part in this version of the game.

For more information on our sessions or to sign up, contact us here.
