The School is creating a fantastic new sports facility that will create opportunities for RGS pupils and for Hockey players from across the local community.
Be a part of the Centre: 'Buy a Brick' and have it engraved. This is the perfect way to show your support and also makes an ideal gift for the Hockey player in your life. Gift certificates can be issued in time for Santa to place them under the Christmas tree for your loved ones!
RGS is leading the construction of the Worcester International Hockey Centre in partnership with Worcester Hockey Club and with the support of Worcester City Council. It is an innovative collaboration that draws together the skills and expertise of an educational charity, an amateur sports club and local government to create a Hockey Centre accessible for the local community and that will become a 'jewel in the crown' for Worcester. This sports facility will comprise two international standard water-based pitches, two football pitches, changing facilities, and on-site parking.
The Centre will provide RGS pupils the space to develop their Hockey skills combining superb facilities and outstanding coaching and adding to the astroturf pitch at RGS The Grange. Partnering with Worcester Hockey Club offers a pathway for RGS pupils to participate in the sport locally at Club level as well. It will raise the bar for Hockey provision in Worcestershire and the West Midlands, with the potential for international fixtures to be held at the Centre. Construction commenced in October 2020 and will be completed in time for the season in September 2021.
Sponsorship and naming opportunities are available at the Centre, please contact the Foundation Office for more details.
