Hockey Tours to Holland

Posted March 30, 2015 BLOG-HOCKEY-TO-HOLLAND

Hockey is one of the most popular sports in The Netherlands. At just one club alone, 150 children are playing hockey on Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings as well as at school. There is an abundance of hockey clubs to compete against, all providing top quality astro turf facilities, and due to the number of players representing each club with a large range of abilities, there is certainly no problem in finding opposition that will stretch your team and give them a run for their money.

The Dutch sides are known for being incredibly hospitable. Not only will the supporters come out in full force, but they certainly put on a good spread after the match which often includes becoming familiar will the local Dutch cuisine.

Festivals are also plentiful in the country and teams are welcomed from Australia, Spain, New Zealand, South Africa, Russia, USA and many more. Being just a 45mins flight away from London Gatwick Airport, it's the perfect destination where your team have the opportunity to compete on an international basis.
