This morning we depart London and head west to Highclere Castle, which has been made famous for the TV show- Downton Abbey. We’ll enjoy a tour of Highclere Castle and grounds before taking part in an afternoon visit to the Reading Hockey Club, one of England’s most successful field hockey clubs. Founded in 1904, the Reading Hockey Club joined England’s premier field hockey league in 1972 and has been a site for international competition. Due to a size increase, the club moved to its current location in 1986 and today has 18 teams. Reading Hockey Club fields a men’s and women’s team in England’s top leagues and both teams have won premier league championships in recent history. After our visit we will transfer to the hotel for a pre-game meal and then be transferred for our field hockey game. After our game we will have a post game party with time to interact and become better friends with the team we just played.
