Beeston’s men and women are gearing up for an exciting doubleheader in the Premier Division, set to be followed by a fireworks display at Nottingham Hockey Centre. Both Beeston teams are determined to make an impact at the top of the table as they face rivals University of Nottingham. Currently, the women’s team is in fifth place, while the men’s team holds the sixth spot in their respective leagues.

Beeston will be hosting their games in doubleheaders with the men’s 1s this season, an initiative aimed at boosting engagement and raising the club’s profile as a leading Midlands club.

Sordillo recognized the club’s efforts to create a unique experience for fans, fostering a sense of community and engagement.

The upcoming clash against the University of Nottingham promises to be an interesting matchup between contrasting styles, with Beeston looking to outshine their rivals. Sordillo acknowledged that it’s essential to maintain control, create opportunities, and put on a show for the crowd.
