Ambleside Hockey Club opened their season with a successful Hockeyfest event, encouraging new players to join following the gold medal success of Great Britain at this summer’s Olympics. HockeyFest is a national campaign organised by the National Governing Body, Great Britain Hockey, and has seen great numbers across the country picking up their sticks as the sport enjoys the effects of GB’s victory in Rio.
Players took on a variety of mini-games, including the ‘Olympic Ring’ challenge to test out their shooting skills, and facing Ambleside’s keeper in a Penalty Shootout.
There was also a range of tasty baked treats on offer, raising £75.39 in total, with proceeds from the sale going towards Rosemere Cancer Foundation, supporting their work with cancer patients across Lancashire and South Cumbria.
Interested in joining the fun? We welcome players of all ages and experience. Please check our About Us page for details on all the club has to offer.

A depleted Ambleside team showed great character to battle back from a 2 goal deficit to secure a point in a rainy encounter against Keswick.
Despite a solid start by both teams, it was Keswick who took an early lead from a short corner, adding a second after the break.
Ambleside fought back, however, with Lauren Wade, Lucy Dixon and Holly Strickland combining well up front to open up the Keswick defence. Their hard work was soon rewarded as a strong shot by Lucy beat the keeper, followed closely by a second when Holly was on hand to guide home the rebound off Lauren’s initial strike.
Keswick fought back, but were thwarted by a stubborn defensive display- and were even denied a late winner by the grill of keeper Holly Price’s helmet.
Ambleside will be particularly pleased at how their younger players stepped up to the plate in this match, and will look to build on recent performances in preparation for next season.
