Hockey in 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 with 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.

Holland has much to offer outside of the astro turf, so inbetween fixtures you can spend your time exploring famous sporting stadiums, learning about history, enjoying day trips to the capital and taking part in some adrenaline pumping activities.
