Chairman of Kendal Hockey Club, Nick Davis said “Kendal Hockey Club is going through a fantastic period of growth at the moment. 2017 has been an exciting period for us, as the two previously separate clubs – Kendal Ladies Hockey Club and Kendal Mens Hockey Club have finally amalgamated into one, thus becoming Kendal Hockey Club.
“Membership numbers are on the rise and with it a fantastic team of volunteers are in place to help manage this. We have also been lucky enough to partner with local sponsors Story Homes who have provided us with financial support for the 2017/18 season and onwards.
“As with most sports these days, playing kit can be expensive and thanks to our partnership with Story Homes we have been able to provide kit and other essential items for the whole club, from juniors through to adult players – we can’t thank Story Homes enough.”
Kendal Hockey Club is made up of five senior teams and a large junior section which spans U14, U12 and U10 age range. The club plays in competitive leagues across the North of England with the ladies 1st team having previously competed at national level in the Investec League. Some of the players represent Cumbria at county level. The club has a strong junior section and has close links to local schools that are enabling them to grow their junior teams year on year.
David continued: “We receive so many applications for our support and it is great we can do something with this wonderful club. We are committed to supporting the communities in which we work and build our new homes, and I really encourage any charities and groups looking for funding to apply to the Future Story fund for their chance to receive sponsorship for their own cause.”
“The teams are stepping out in style and we hope they love their new kits. We wish all the teams every success in the season.”
