    Story

    We are a new club for the old English sport of bandy! Popular in 26 other countries for 100 years, but not played here where it began! We now have many young players wanting to join in the fun. And a GB team are invited to play a first game against Lidkoping in Sweden, August 15, 2018. We have just had a sponsor for 5K for the GB strip for 20 players! But hotel and travel will cost another £6,000! Our players are putting in as much as they can, but many are students or at school! We also have to pay for ice time every week for our training sessions.So we are asking for this help from people who believe that this exciting sport, similar to football and field hockey on ice, that is healthy, non-violent and good for youngsters in the UK, is worth supporting financially to see it catch on in a big way!"

      We have received sponsorship for our strip from Sweden! Thank you! We now have a reduced target to accomplish our goals! This game is fun, non violent and promotes fair play and positive attitudes. It is skilled and competitive and is able to be played by all ages from 5 upwards to no limit and by all genders and cultures - and in mixed teams! Help us fly the flag for bandy! Uphold the game started in East Anglia in the 19th century by CG Tebbutt who wrote the rules, of the Bury Fen Bandy Club! Please donate! Any amount you can give will help!

    I spent my life as a speed skater establishing it as an accepted sport for women in the UK in the late 70's. I also started women's ice hockey in 1981. I am unable to skate now, but want to see new skaters get a chance to play bandy, this great game I would have loved to play!
