With the success of the British Olympic teams, hockey has really taken off across the UK in recent years. The sport can be played on variety of pitches, such as indoor, artificial, and 3G astroturf. Whether you’re an avid hockey player, or just trying out the sport for the first time, here’s where you can play in Manchester.
The Albion Academy in Salford, West Manchester, has an astroturf pitch with hockey markings and goals, but it’s worth calling ahead to check that hockey sticks and a ball can be provided should you require them. The outdoor pitch has floodlights so you can play well into the evening. There is a nearby bus stop for those who wish to travel via public transport, but there is also the option to use the parking facilities.
