Tunbridge Wells Sports Partnership Hockey Competition- Tuesday 21st March

Yesterday our Hockey team took part in the Annual Hockey Competition at Hawkenbury Recreational Park. We were in Group 1 against St Peter’s, Long Mead, Temple Grove and Claremont B. The tempo of the games was really fast and the team enjoyed playing on a fast surface. We played some excellent Hockey and certainly improved with our short and long corners throughout the games. We produced some superb team passing with Jonathan and Sahith making strong runs. Defensively, Isabelle and Elsie produced some goal saving tackles whilst Maddie, Sophia and Louis played well in midfield while Teddy made some brilliant breaks up front as our striker. In the play off’s we played a strong St Marks team and managed to win 2-0 with goals from Jonathan and Teddy in Southborough best game of the day. In the end we finished in 11th place in a hugely competitive tournament against some good club players.

All the pupils really enjoyed playing the matches and moving forward if pupils do want to play Hockey out of school we recommend Tunbridge Wells Hockey club who play between 9am-12 midday on a Sunday at Tonbridge Boys School. 

Well done to all the pupils that took part in the Hockey: Jonathan, Sahith, Teddy, Louis, Maddie, Sophia, Elsie and Isabelle.
