We want new beginners equipment for hockey so that everyone can get involved!

Our motivation

The University are currently working on raising £500 to invest in beginners equipment so everyone can take part in hockey! The University of Essex Hockey Club currently have the aim to raise money for equipment for beginners such as sticks, cones and bibs etc.

Why you ask? Surely they have these items already? Why would they need more?

Well, to tell you the honest truth, we want more beginners to join hockey and most importantly to get more people involved with sport! The current equipment we have ready for newbies to lend such as sticks are very old, worn out and not really adequate anymore. Equally, we want be able to have equipment such as spare sticks so that anybody who wants to join hockey doesn’t necessarily have to have a stick to come!

Old equipment

The current equipment we have such as spare sticks, bibs and cones are becoming are currently very worn. So we would love to be able to raise the funds for this new equipment so we can invest more into providing equipment for beginners so they feel confident to play! The most important aim of this click project is to above all else, get more beginners involved with hockey and equally get more people active!


If we reach our target of £500 a lot of the money will go on buying new spare sticks but will equally go towards buying new cones and new sets of bibs.

Cost of Equipment (Estimate)

  • Set of 10 bibs = £35
  • 1 Hockey Stick = £25
  • Set of 50 Cones = £10

If we reach our target of £500 we will buy

  • 12/13 hockey sticks = £300/£325
  • 5 sets of bibs = £175
  • 2 sets of 50 cones = £20

If we fundraise more than our goal, we will invest that money in buying more spare sticks!
