Hockey for Heroes Op Endure

2 months ago By Nik Bentley

Starts in just 14 Days and includes our own Molly Pallett

On the 26th May 2018, Hockey for Heroes will commence their first ever ladies operation starting at the National Hockey Centre in Glasgow and finishing on the 2nd of July at Canterbury Hockey Club, all in aid of Help for Heroes.

#OpEndure will involve the ladies team traveling across the UK taking part in 8 military challenges and playing 28 hockey games over the course of an 8 day period.

The team will start their tour in Glasgow on the 26th May and will finish on the 2nd June at Canterbury.

The final day will include hockey games along with a family fun day featuring various activities including a bouncy castle, inflatable pitch racers and many other family themed activities.

Throughout the tour the squad of 25 will start the day with a physical exercise set by a military instructor including log races, assault courses, interval runs and other physical challenges that will push the ladies to their physical and mental limits .

Following the physical challenges the squad will play up to 4 games of hockey each day against teams from across the armed forces and local clubs.

‘’In May 2018 we embark on our first ever Hockey For Heroes Ladies Tour. Operation Endure, a full on, 8 day endurance event incorporating 3/4 games of hockey a day. The name of the task is very much reflective of what the ladies are going to go through. Each day there will be a military endurance task from Log Races to weighted speed marches similar to that of the Royal Marines and The Parachute Regiment. The Girls are going to go through some serious physical and mental pain barriers during the execution of Operation Endure.” Says Joel Forrester, Hockey for Heroes CEO.
