This week we hear from our President, Matt and our Tour secretary Emily about how they've been getting on with our summer challenge! Click on read more to find out how they've been doing.
This summer some of our members from Warwick Mixed Hockey club are taking part in a summer charity challenge with our new charity Coventry Haven.
We are either giving something up, for example crisps, chocolate and pizza. Or starting something new and challenging ourselves in new ways by doing things like walking 10,000 steps every day, working out for an hour a day, running 15km per week, doing cheer and ballet style stretching each day or attempting to cross the distance of the English channel by swimming/running.
We aim to raise £450 between us to help support Coventry Haven. To learn more about Coventry Haven please visit their website at http://www.coventryhaven.co.uk/.

A disappointing result, a 2-1 defeat with our goal coming from James Anderson, but there was still a great performance put in by all our players. Especially in the first half, we were all over them in their half and were unfortunate not to convert that into more goals. Our defence came under a fair bit of pressure, but still kept the work rate up with Eddie Ayoub winning MOTM for his performance at the back.
Great play from everyone, especially considering the heat!
Today saw the very first UWMXDHC ladies v UWLHC match. We played 15 minute halves since the heat was so intense everyone playing was at severe risk of heat stroke. Mixed started off strong going 3-0 up in the first half. Our team was much stronger on the ball and worked as an effective unit despite the lack of experience together.
A close second half left the final score was 4-2 to us.
A confidence-boosting win from our ladies, with goals from Ellen Percival(twice), Abi Parsons and Natasha McFann. Our Player of the Match was Ellen Percival, but well done to the whole team, especially given how bloody warm it was.
A great result from the first Mixed vs Ladies match!
