The Hockey Museum

For those interested in hockey and its history. Please feel free to sign up for further information and publicise on social media.
The Hockey Museum (THM) was launched at the end of 2011 and the aim of this new organisation is to preserve, share and celebrate the rich heritage and history of the sport of hockey, not only in Britain where the modern game started, but also from all round the world.
The Museum is now home to a growing collection of hockey archives, artefacts and memorabilia. A key part of the work of the Museum’s team of volunteers is to register, collate and store these fascinating records and items and over time, to make them accessible to the hockey family and the wider public through the website, newsletters, displays and other exhibitions.

England Hockey Umpire Membership Launch

See the latest information from England Hockey for our current umpires and anyone interested in getting involved in umpiring.

EHUmpire Membership Launch

We are delighted to launch a subscription based offer for umpires at all levels of the game. With the commencement of online educational forums and workshops throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve decided to open our libraries of specialist individuals’ advice and guidance to anyone within the “umpiring family” through an exclusive membership offer.

There will be 2 levels of membership (including a free membership level) where specialist, insightful and supportive educational material and comment boards will be made available for individuals to help undertake their own development for their umpiring.

The EHUmpiring membership is available now! A brief overview of the details of what benefits members can experience, please see below and click on the button to become a part of England Hockey Umpire Membership.

National Lockdown: Latest updates

As a committee we first hope you are all keeping well and continue to through this difficult period.

Over the last week we had been discussing whether we could resume hockey on Wednesday 6th January as a Tier 3 club and there were valid arguments on both sides. Sadly, this decision has been made for us after the announcement of another national lock down last night.

The 2020/21 season has been up and down and I am sure we are all glad that we have been able to have some time on the pitch together.

Hopefully with the role out of vaccines the situation will have improved over the coming months.

We hope you and your families stay safe and well, best wishes.

Club Kit – website ‘live’

Over the past few months, we have been looking at a new playing kit, that we are going to introduce next season (not yet available).

To go with that, and for purchase now, we are also offering some branded training gear – hoodies, tracksuit tops & bottoms, hats, etc.

Our online store is now live (link below), and some of this gear might make excellent Christmas presents for yourself, or for someone who plays hockey for the club.

Please note – to guarantee delivery before Christmas, you need to get your order in BEFORE next weekend (12th December).
