by Barford Tigers Hockey Club in Birmingham, West Midlands, United Kingdom

Barford Tigers is a community based hockey club. Formed in 1966 it has become one of the most successful hockey clubs in the area with the Men’s first team playing in the National League and nine teams playing on a regular basis, including the Ladies section. We thrive by working with the local community to encourage physical activity, providing sporting and wellbeing opportunities and promote physical activity in culturally sensitive ethnic groups. As a hockey club we also believe it is important to increase youth sports here in Birmingham, hence the development of our large Youth Section which involves circa 50 girls and boys and that number is growing every year. The success and growth of our club has put considerable pressure on the Club's resources and therefore we need to raise funds to maintain our position as an inner city hockey club and continue to serve the local community. We are also raising funds to enhance and grow our youth section. Every Sunday we provide coaching for girls and boys in Handsworth area. Our coaches are qualified and many are former Internationals so children from 6 years to 16 years can learn and develop life skills in a sporting environment. We also reach out to local schools to offer free coaching to encourage accessibility and participation for a wider diverse and inclusive group. This allows us to offer hockey Scholarships which provides free hockey and equipment to those with financial constraints.
