Congratulations to Chanré Bond, our Head of Hockey, for being a driving force in helping the England Hockey Women’s Over 45 team to win Gold at the World Masters Hockey European Championships!
Miss Bond, who plays on the forward line, scored four goals during the tournament, which took place at the prestigious Nottingham Hockey Centre during the last week of term. Miss Bond was the joint second highest goal-scorer in the tournament for the Over 45s age group.
The England Over 45s won all six matches in the tournament, including against Germany in the semi-finals, and against Spain in the finals, when they won 4-0; two goals of which were scored by Miss Bond.
The squad also recently won the Four Nations Tournament in Swansea, Wales, meaning that they have won two Gold medals this year!
Miss Bond, who was born in Cape Town and has been teaching at King’s since 2005, said: “Playing Hockey at an International level, with a group of dedicated, hard working, and inspirational athletes (and winning Gold!) is the best feeling ever.”
Miss Bond is a shining example of the specialist teaching and coaching that pupils receive at King’s. She will also be trialling for the 2024 Hockey World Cup in Auckland, New Zealand, later this year!
