Hockey Fever launched in April 2016 and its intention was to share all the positives that sport and physical activity can bring to life; fun, confidence, self-esteem, teamwork, commitment and sportsmanship... to name but a few.
We believe that everyone can gain something from participating in physical activity in a team environment and we are extremely proud of the community that Hockey Fever has become.
I’m the one behind the scenes on the admin and organising front, but I do like to get out there and just play! My passion for hockey started at school, in Cheltenham, with the formidable Mary Eyre teaching me. I made my way over the years through County, District, West and England trials before realising that the 50% of me that was Welsh was the left hand side where my heart lay.
I then spent 15 years representing Wales in both Women’s and Mixed sides, and playing National League. Along the way I have trained as a teacher, spent 6 years as a Firefighter and continue to work alongside Ed, my husband, in our business as a training provider, training personal trainers and delivering Strength and Conditioning sessions, particularly to juniors.
The last 10 years have been busy with the arrival of four little Archers, but now there is just enough time for me to squeeze in some hockey again.
I’m really excited about being able to make hockey accessible to everyone, from those who just want a bit of team sport fitness, to those who love hockey and want to play through the summer to those who haven’t played since school and want to see if they can still hit a hockey ball, to those who’ve played before but can’t manage Saturday fixtures due to family commitments. I can’t wait to meet you all on the side of a pitch, please come and say hi.
