On the 9th of August at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton, the England Cricket women’s captain, Heather Knight, passed on the World Cup baton to England Hockey women’s captain, Alex Danson as part of the TeamUp initiative.

The day was action-packed with Heather and Alex giving a series of brilliant interviews with The Daily Telegraph, ITV Meridian and BBC GNS, which syndicated 11 regional radio interviews. The athletes discussed the rise of women’s sport, shared valuable insight into tournament preparations and how to inspire the next generation. During the day youngsters from Trojans Hockey Club were treated to a hockey session followed by a Q&A session with both Alex and Heather.

With the 2017 ICC Women’s World Cup finished, TeamUp’s attention now shifts to the 2018 Hockey World Cup in London where England Hockey will hope to emulate the success of the cricketers.
