The growth and popularity of our sport is shining through at the moment with more ways and opportunities to watch some top class hockey from around the world and closer to home !
Where you're starting out in your hockey life as an academy player, an old hand in the masters, club player or 1st team player there's something everyone can learn by watching hockey - the more people who watch hockey the more coverage we'll get on mainstream telly !
This weekend its the Men's Euro Hockey League the Champions League of European Club Hockey - if you've not watched any top men's club hockey take a look over the next few days - Watch on BT Sport (3) or online at EHL EHL Hockey Schedule. England's Holcombe were knocked out earlier today but there are some fantastic club teams to watch - plus the added excitement of using the two goals for a field goal and one for a Penalty Corner - all adds to the excitement. Simon Egerton of this Parish (well Bowdon) is playing for Rotterdam.
Watch England Men and Women at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 4th - 15th April 2018 - see the full playing schedule (attached) - tune into the BBC Commonwealth Games Coverage Live, highlights, online and on the red button
If you went along the Manchester2002 Commonwealth Games at Belle Vue its probably a good reminder of how far our sports come over the last 15 years !
