Hockey club on move

REDLAND Ladies Hockey Club are moving to a new home at Lockleaze Sports Centre.

From this month, they will use Bristol’s latest new blue astro pitch for senior training on Thursdays as well as Saturday home fixtures and teas.

To celebrate the move, they are holding an Adult Open Day (Ages 16+) on Sunday November 19 between 11am and 12.30pm. New players, returners to hockey and those just wanting to have a go are welcome for a fun morning of drills and games (all equipment provided), with a cake sale and drinks in the bar after.

Club president Cath Coombs said: “By becoming part of the Lockleaze Sports Centre family, we are thrilled to be part of this vibrant local multi sports-based community.”

Club captain Chris Chan said: “No matter your skill level or background you are welcome to join training on a Thursday night and there is plenty of opportunity for regular Saturday match play too.”

Redland Ladies are an England Hockey Clubmark accredited club with a mixture of players, across a wide age range for seniors (13 to over 60) and all levels of ability. The club runs four senior league squads, competing in the regional leagues – West Women’s Division 1 and Berkeley Divisions 1, 2 and 3.

This season the club are again participating in West Hockey’s new Development League structure which was a great success last season and suits both progressing junior players and Back to Hockey players as a step towards playing at competitive league level.

Additionally, the club’s Masters teams Redland Wereys (O45s and O55s) compete at national level. 

The O55s were 2022 winners of the England Hockey O55s
 Tier 1 Cup and runners-up in 2023.
