New	
  Beccehamian	
  Hockey	
  Club	
  (NBHC)	
  is	
  experiencing	
  an	
  unprecedented	
  influx	
  of	
  new	
  members	
  

following	
  the	
  success	
  of	
  Team	
  GB	
  at	
  London	
  2012.	
  	
  


“We	
  had	
  a	
  steady	
  flow	
  of	
  enquiries	
  throughout	
  the	
  summer,”	
  says	
  NBHC	
  club	
  secretary,	
  Steph	
  

Seeney.	
  “But	
  when	
  the	
  GB	
  men’s	
  and	
  women’s	
  teams	
  reached	
  the	
  Olympic	
  semi	
  final,	
  there	
  was	
  a	
  

noticeable	
  increase	
  and	
  especially	
  when	
  the	
  women’s	
  team	
  won	
  bronze.	
  It’s	
  obvious	
  people	
  have	
  

been	
  energised	
  by	
  this	
  summer’s	
  Olympic	
  success.”	
  	
  


For	
  the	
  2012/2013	
  season,	
  the	
  club	
  has	
  launched	
  a	
  new	
  development	
  side	
  to	
  introduce	
  young	
  

players	
  to	
  the	
  men’s	
  game	
  and	
  as	
  a	
  result	
  of	
  the	
  surge	
  in	
  interest	
  from	
  prospective	
  members,	
  it	
  is	
  

hosting	
  an	
  open	
  day	
  at	
  its	
  home	
  ground

Beckenham

  September	
  from

  to

“Not	
  only	
  is	
  hockey	
  a	
  great	
  way	
  to	
  keep	
  fit,	
  there’s	
  a	
  really	
  good	
  social	
  side	
  too.	
  We	
  are	
  very	
  excited	
  

about	
  the	
  new	
  interest	
  in	
  New	
  Beccs,”	
  says	
  Steph.	
  “The	
  club	
  day	
  is	
  set	
  to	
  be	
  an	
  entertaining	
  one	
  for	
  

anybody	
  that	
  comes	
  along,	
  with	
  some	
  7-­‐aside	
  games	
  and	
  a	
  bit	
  of	
  fun.	
  It’s	
  open	
  to	
  men	
  and	
  women	
  

of	
  all	
  ages	
  and	
  abilities,	
  and	
  children	
  aged	
  14	
  +.	
  It	
  doesn’t	
  matter	
  if	
  you’ve	
  never	
  played	
  before	
  or,	
  

inspired	
  by	
  the	
  Olympics,	
  you’re	
  dusting	
  off	
  your	
  hockey	
  stick	
  for	
  the	
  first	
  time	
  in	
  years.	
  Everybody’s	
  

welcome.”
