Redhill ladies have entered a mixed team with Nottingham Hockey Club (collectively known as ‘Nottinghill Mixed’) into a Nottinghamshire League after joining them last summer to play rush hockey. The team has had some tough opposition so far, facing plenty of other teams who have played together for years. Nottinghill have developed into a determined and close-knit team; the goals will be coming soon! The league has been extended because of bad weather, giving us plenty of time to prepare for the upcoming games. We also hope to enter into a mixed league this summer, so that we can really take next season by storm!

I joined Redhill Hockey Club as a junior aged 13. Starting off in the third team everyone was really supportive and encouraging helping me to progress up through the teams. By the age of 16 I was playing in the first team, the youngest player of the first team. I love playing for this team, we are really relaxed and always have a laugh - I was worried about feeling pressure of letting the team down but nobody cares and we support each other to be the best we can be. The social events we do as a club help us to gel and be friends on and off the pitch.
I started playing with Redhill in their Fourth team (when they had four teams :-)) and I have been able to progress through the teams and I am now playing for the First team. I really enjoy being part of the team and it so great to play together. It does help if you win, but you can have a good team game regardless. It is great to be part of this club and I feel I can make a difference in the club.
I joined the club at the start of last season after moving from another club. I was nervous after only ever playing at my old club for 9 years. At the start I was very nervous and scared about making mistakes and would shy away from the ball and not really get involved. The girls made me feel welcome and were very supportive now I don't care I turn up and have a great time. The atmosphere in all the teams are great we all aim to get the job done, motivate each other to do our best and pick each other up when we are down. And if you do make a mistake it's not really a big deal we shrugg it off and laugh at it together. We want to get better together but have a laugh along the way.
Iv'e just finished my first season with Redhill, after not playing hockey for a couple of years. At first I was nervous of joining a new club but everyone has been very friendly and welcoming! I'm looking forward to getting more involved with the club in the future.
I've hit a ball with a stick since 1991 and still love every second. Famed for my knees across the East Midlands, and loving playing ladies and mixed hockey at Redhill HC.
