I Love Tuesday Evenings

Since moving to UK, I wanted to do a lot of things and on top of those was join a Hockey Club. Half of those plans have either been forgotten or I plan to do once I get a decent job but I couldn't stop myself from joining a Hockey Club, as soon as we setled in Cambridge. I go for regular off-season training on Tuesday evenings at South Cambridge Hockey Club and its real fun.
My Old hockey stick was giving me trouble and hence thought of changing it with a new one.

This was being used on and off since past 4 years and it was time for it to go.
Even the Color Started fading.
Got a Slazenger stick and it was pretty costly too. But there is no value for passion. Got the one which the English Olympic team had in 2008, just to boost the passion to play. Sad that the British team defeated India in the Qualifying.
The Grip is pretty soft and there isn't any jerk when I take the Hit.
The Hook's good for scoop and drag flicks. Would cost you 60 quid in the Slazenger website try getting a bargain if you can
South Cam has 4 mens teams and 4 girls teams, casual trainings involves playing in mixed teams or mens teams. Last Tuesday the second team captain came and asked me if I was intersted to join them for the season starting in October, looks like I impressed him. I was thrilled at that invitation. :-) So till October I would like to train lots and then put fight to find place in the regular team.
Tata... It is time...

Virdi, I got so excited seeing the new hockey stick and your induction into a hockey team. Its great to be playing back esp when you have been a regular player (as you were). And the picture at the top looks damn good and the shot looks so picture perfect! Good luck on your hockey sessions and more than anything - ENJOY!
