The new North Norfolk Hockey Club got their debut season off to a flying start with a successful fun day at Cromer Sports Centre.
England Hockey's Hockey Nation initiative is all about getting people involved in hockey and a lot of people certainly did just that.
Formed as a merger of North Walsham and Holt Harlequins, the event was about bonding as well as inviting new players to get involved.
The morning session for the Under-13s was well attended with over 30 children participating in the tournament and skill games demonstrating some really good potential and that the club has a really good future.
The adults' tournament in the afternoon was graced by a healthy turn-out with many new faces across all abilities. Anyone wanting to get involved in the club, regardless of ability , should contact the club, who are always looking to grow their membership.
