Walking Hockey is exactly as the name suggests – you play hockey while walking. It’s designed to help people maintain an active lifestyle regardless of age, health and ability, as well as getting individuals back into the sport who had to stop due to injuries or other reasons. Most importantly – IT’S FUN!!!

First introduced 4 years ago in Atherton, Walking Hockey is a modified version of traditional hockey. The slower and less-impact format makes the game more inclusive for all. The 6-a-side game is modified with simpler rules to increase engagement and enjoyment of the game.

At Atherton, we have a designated ‘Walking Hockey’ field, approximately 1/4 of the size of a regular hockey field. This makes it perfect for players who are looking for a less physically demanding version of hockey. It allows them to be involved in a team sport, whilst promoting physical and mental benefits. It allows people to socialise, meet new people and enjoy staying active.

Walking Hockey will be returning in 2023 – We look forward to seeing you – please contact us if you want any information.
