A group of mum's in Teddington who have started their own hockey team have now been earmarked for an award.

Teddington Ladies 5th is made up of women who started playing hockey last year during the Olympic games.

They're part of the Elderflowers Back to Hockey group based at Teddington Hockey Club.

Now, almost a year into the game, and they've been put up for a public vote by Stylist magazine to win the Fair Games awards.

You can cast your vote by visiting this link.

Many of the women, who are in their 40's and 50's have never played hockey since going to school.

After watching children play the sport, one mum, Cathy Withycombe came up with the idea to put together a team, using their children's equipment.

If they win the competition, they could see a boost in sponsorship.
