Field Hockey Training Gran Canaria
Playing field hockey on the Canary Islands is possible!
Hockey is possible here, because Las Palmas, the capital of Gran Canaria, has been in the Spanish Primera Division for years. That is also why you will find a good water based pitch at the venue.
In Gran Canaria we offer different accommodations: from hostel to hotel, all centrally located and very close to the beach.
Gran Canaria has many faces. If you leave the tourist areas, you will get to know a different island. You will find beautiful mountains with a huge variety of subtropical flora and fauna. There are numerous beautiful villages, where you suddenly notice there are no other tourists.
One of the most important places of interest is Roque Nublo, a 80 meters high rock. And do not miss the Dunas de Maspalomas, a beautiful collection of sand dunes. Which are situated at the southern part of the island, next to the sea.
In February, Carnival is celebrated throughout the Canary Islands. The island is famous because of this big “fiesta”. That is why it is a good option to combine field hockey with an evening stroll and watch the spectacular Carnival parades in the streets.
Gran Canaria is famous for its delicious temperatures, with an average of 25 degrees throughout the year. Ideal to combine training with a visit to the beach for a swim, surf, sailing or padelsurf training.
