Mixed Summer Hockey In Glasgow

2015 Summer Hockey

RottenSox Mixed Summer Hockey begins in the first week of May, and will run until the beginning of August.

Every Thursday at 18:30 we will be playing a friendly 11-a-side game at Titwood water-based pitch (they have Sky TV and a bar for afterwards!) The two teams will consist of gents and ladies from Rottenrow BlueSox Hockey Club, new recruits, family and friends – with a range of abilities from complete beginners to seasoned players.

Everyone is welcome! These sessions are ideal if you want to get back into hockey, or if you want to pick up a brand new sport. Extra sticks can be provided upon request.

There are other friendlies organised against other clubs to be played on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday each week (see fixtures page for details).

Please contact Ally Millar  for further details, or to be added to the RottenSox Mixed Summer Hockey mailing list.

All Summer Hockey fixtures are now available on the website.
