Aldridge & Walsall Hockey Club

New Adventure for Aldridge & Walsall 


With the start of the new hockey season around the corner, there is a sense of excitement around Walsall & Hockey Club as members look forward to the long-awaited relocation to Aston University Recreation Centre and Playing Fields on Birmingham Road. 

The new state-of-the-art synthetic pitch, due to open in August 2015 has promised to be a major development in the club's long term strategic plan of encouraging the younger generation from the local community to take up the sport of hockey, following the success of our athletes at London 2012. 

Club Chairman, Andrew Dickson explains, "the club has recently signed a Community Partnership Agreement with Aston University. This is an exciting new venture for the club with a brand new state of the art playing surface with changing rooms and a club house for drinks and after match hospitality on site."

The club caters for all ages and playing standards, but above all, Aldridge & Walsall Hockey Club has a sociable and friendly atmosphere, and provides a great environment to meet new people. The club currently runs four men's teams, one ladies team and a junior section, with plenty of opportunities to develop and progress within the club. The relocation has also provided the club with a new on-site clubhouse for members and opposition to socialise, as well as hosting regular social and charity events the club organises. 

We are currently welcoming new players. Senior training commences on Monday 7th September, 8-10pm at Aston University Playing Fields and Junior training starts later that week on Saturday 12th September, 9.30-10.30am at Walsall Campus (entrance via Magdalene Road). 

We are also hosting a fun club day on Saturday 5th September from 2.30pm at Aston University Playing Fields for an opportunity to meet everyone at the hockey club and then to play some friendly matches against each other before the season starts!
