Sponsorship for Carlisle Hockey Club
Walby Farm Park announced their support for the children’s section of Carlisle hockey teams after confirming it will be the shirt sponsor for all primary school aged teams at the club.
Carlisle Hockey Club is the only Hockey Club in Carlisle with three senior women’s teams, two men’s teams, hockey for secondary, primary school ages, for those who want to get back into hockey and beginners. The club prides itself on player development and a family ethos, with the children’s section being pivotal to its success. Hockey is great for boosting children’s confidence and ensuring a positive experience of physical activity that has a beneficial effect throughout their lives.
Kath Illidge, Club Chairperson, said
‘’We are excited about our partnership with Walby Farm Park and, as a grassroots sports club, rely on local businesses such as Walby and Smileville Orthodontics, who sponsor our senior teams, to support us. The club has grown considerably over the last few years, with our five senior teams having amazing success, and our junior development has been pivotal to this. It’s great to see so many different ages loving hockey in Carlisle!’’
Katie Milbourn, Owner of Walby Farm Park added,
“We take immense pride in our partnership with Carlisle Hockey Club and our sponsorship of their brand-new kit. Hockey holds a special place in our hearts; it’s a shared passion within our family. My three daughters and I have all embraced the sport, both at school and club levels, with each of them launching their hockey journey at Carlisle Hockey Club. We strongly believe in nurturing a love for sports from a young age, and we are thrilled to be a part of this initiative, fostering the growth and development of the children’s team.”
