Olympic Hockey Gold Medalist to Visit Daventry

A member of the history making Great Britain Women's Hockey team who famously won their first ever Gold medal in the sport at the Rio Olympics this summer in one of the most dramatic moments of the Games will be attending an event organised by Long Buckby Hockey Club on Sunday 20th November 10am – 12:30pm.

Forward Nicola White who scored the amazing late equalising goal against Holland in the Final which led to them going on to win the tournament in a nail biting penalty shootout will be at Daventry Sports Park, Browns Road, NN11 4NS. Members of the public are being invited along to attend the event by the club to have a go at the sport, meet Nicola and see her Gold medal.

The first of these opportunities is for juniors aged 7-13 who can take part in a session 10-11:30am. Then there will be a chance for anyone aged 14 and over to get involved when the senior session takes place 11:45am – 12:30pm.

Both sessions cost just £3 to participate in, equipment can be provided if required, so all participants need to do is turn up in suitable sports clothing about 15 minutes before they are due to start, and bring a drink.

No previous Hockey experience is required and it's open to all levels of ability, so come along, have a go at this fast, fun, exciting sport, and get inspired by meeting one of Team GB's Olympic Gold medal winning history making stars.

If anyone requires further information about the event then they can contact Amanda Becker from the club via email on amanda.t.becker@gmail.com. Alternatively have a look at their website, or connect with them via social media on their Long Buckby Hockey Club Facebook page and Twitter handle @LongBuckbyHC.
