This Tuesday, July 23rd, is the final night of Summer Hockey at Grange Road! We hope to see the largest turn out yet to finish off in style. We will have Love Island on the TV, the bar will be open and we may even have pizza! It is all dependent on numbers so car pool, cycle, take the bus (16 drops you right outside the club) and bring a friend(s) to finish off in style!
7.30-9pm this Tuesday, spread the word!
