Midlothian's hockey club...

Eskvale Hockey Club are proud to 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 Wednesday evenings from 14/8/19.  The first session is free and then it is only £2 per week after that or £5/month if paying by standing order.  A bargain, I'm sure you'll agree.  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.
