INVERLEITH WALKING HOCKEY
Available for Men & Ladies over 50's
The idea of Men & Ladies Walking Hockey is new concept to Scotland and was started by Eskvale Hockey Club just before lockdown. They meet on a Wednesday from 19.30 at Lasswade High with an open age group.
The IWH arrived in July this year and meet on a Tuesday at the Edinburgh University Playing Fields, Peffermill Road, EH16 5LL from 12.00 to 13.00. A good excuse to meet up for a chat and maybe even feel your heart beat a little faster. Afterwards, it is onto the Salisbury Inn (opposite the Commonwealth Pool) for a light lunch & Latte !!
The IWH design is to offer Men & Ladies over the age of 50, regardless of their health and ability, an opportunity to return to a more active lifestyle, build up your confidence, look after your mental health and enjoy a bit of banter ?
We play at the Peffermill small pitch area with a larger lightweight plastic yellow ball. The suggestion is you bring fluid for the drink breaks between our 3 x 15 min games. It is a pushing game, so no hitting !! and the ball should not rise above knee level. The cost will be £4.00 per session payable on arrival. Please bring a white and coloured top. At present, we have no access to changing rooms so bring a fresh top for afterwards !!
If you would like to be involved with the IWH, you are welcome to contact Neill Sinclair at firstname.lastname@example.org with your Name, DOB and Contact Mobile Number.
