Guildford Hockey Club
Welcome to Guildford Hockey Club where players, parents and supporters have been enjoying the sporting and social life that thrives around hockey since 1912. As the the game of hockey has evolved, so has Guildford to comprise 6 Men’s teams, 4 Ladies’ teams and a thriving Junior Section encompassing more than 400 children from the ages of 6 to 18 years old. We are situated at Broadwater School in Godalming with two all-weather pitches and a Clubhouse that is brimming with activity on weekday evenings and on weekends during the season when we are training, playing matches and running social events.
We pride ourselves on providing an enjoyable and productive hockey experience for all age groups and all ability levels. Please have a look at our website and if you are interested in playing or getting involved. We welcome new players. Come and see why Guildford is ‘A Great Place to Play.’
