Boys Design New KaBo Hockey Sticks
Monday, 04 July 2022
Over 30 pupils in Bolton School Boys’ Division took part in a competition to design a new hockey stick for KaBo Hockey Limited, an internet-based company that sells hockey equipment and clothing.
Awards to winners were made by Rob Alty of KaBo at the School’s final hockey practice for the year. Two winners were announced: Sixth Form student Simon Whitmore for his ‘Bukavac’ design and Year 11 pupil Jayden Luhar for his ‘Nemesis’ stick.
The competition came about through the burgeoning relationship between Bolton School and KaBo, which sees pupils enjoy subsidised costs on hockey equipment. On the evening, the young hockey players were thrilled to try out a range of new KaBo sticks.
Hockey in the Boys’ Division has risen in popularity since the opening of the all-weather pitches at the School’s Leverhulme Pavilion in September 2019.
In the last academic year, the Year 11 team competed well against schools from across the region, despite not playing at all when they arrived at School in Year 7. The Year 10 team has almost 40 players in its squad, whilst more than 25 Year 7 boys train on Friday evenings and over 40 Year 8 and Year 9 lads train on Wednesdays after school.
Last year the AEGIS and Junior School England Hockey (North-West) Tournaments were held at Bolton School
