Grassroots hockey is thriving across London and Waltham Forest is a hotbed for the popular sport. This borough has lots of hockey venues to choose from and these can be booked online using MyLocalPitch.com. Astroturf pitches are most common in the borough and these tend to be water-based or sand-based surfaces. Floodlights are installed at a number of the hockey facilities and this means games can be played for twelve months of the year. Internal leagues and tournaments are run by hockey clubs for those wanting a regular competitive game in east London.
