Hi, and welcome to the women's section of Cheltenham Hockey Club!
We have three women's teams competing in various leagues within the West Women's hockey set-up and we cater for players of all standards and abilities.
During the season, women's training for all players takes place at Balcarras School from 6.30 - 8.00pm on Thursday evenings. Players are expected to arrive at 6.00pm to take part in the club training run and warm up, prior to stepping on to the pitch. A typical training session covers work on basic skills, stick and ball work, set pieces and sessions on game play, either new or prompted by events from the previous weekend's match. Sessions are split into squads with Will Pearce responsible for overall training, with a support team that includes Peter Duffy, Simon Padley, Ross Polgrean and Chris Purnell.
