RGS is building the Worcester International Hockey Centre at Perdiswell, located at just over one mile from RGS Worcester and RGS Springfield, half a mile from RGS The Grange and less than a 15 minute drive from RGS Dodderhill.
This fantastic new sports facility will create opportunities for RGS pupils and for Hockey players from across the local community. This £2.9m development is being funded innovatively by working closely with Worcester City Council and Worcester Hockey Club. To help offset the cost, we are asking parents, staff, alumni and the local community to consider ‘buying a brick’ and/or to sponsor aspects of the facility.
John Pitt, Headmaster, said, "RGS teams are now competing as one of the top Hockey schools in the country. We wish to replicate this opportunity with Hockey for boys at RGS. This new Centre will provide our pupils and staff with the facilities needed to progress rapidly. While we strive for honours and success, our core principal at RGS remains ‘Sport for All’. Put simply, this means that we wish for every child to have the opportunity to find their level across a wide range of sports, including Hockey, with expert coaches to guide them."
Tim Curtis, RGSW and AOS Foundation Chair of Trustees, said, "The Foundation is raising funds to contribute to the cost of the Centre. Grants have been applied for through the Foundation Office and the ‘buy-a-brick’ opportunity launched in conjunction with Worcester Hockey Club has proven to be popular. We would like as many RGS parents and alumni as possible to purchase a brick or paving stone which will be installed at the Centre. This prominent display will reflect the support given to the Worcester community.
The bricks are priced with options ranging from £25-£348. There are also larger sponsorship items available which offer high-profile opportunities to promote businesses at the new Centre."
