We are delighted to invite you to take part in the opening of our exciting new hockey pitch at Langley Park School for Girls.
The club has invested over £120,000 in the upgraded facility, along with £150,000 from Sport England and £50,000 from England Hockey. This will allow us to reinvest more money into hockey, as well as provide more hockey opportunities during the week and during school holidays.
