On Sunday, September 2 Naas Hockey Club held a club day for all its members and opened the club to the whole local community.

The event doubled as a registration day for the junior club and saw hundreds of children from age seven and older join up to their local county Kildare Hockey Club for the forthcoming season.

Since the success of the Olympics, there has been a lot of new found interest in hockey and the club day was the perfect opportunity for curious admirers to see what the game was all about.

Club President, Angus Dunlop, explained that this day marked a revival of Naas Hockey Club and that the whole club is very excited about the new season ahead.

“As well as a large junior section, the club has three senior ladies teams and one me’ns team. We have people here today who haven’t played hockey in 10 years and are planning to join us next week in training.

“Naas is a club for the whole community and always welcomes new members. We have great facilities here in the Naas Sports Centre and would encourage anyone interested in Hockey to come down and give it a go.”

Naas senior teams all compete in the Leinster Leagues and train every Tuesday and Thursday evening at their home pitch in the Naas Sports Centre, just off the Caragh Road.
