Whether you're 5 or 65, there's never been a better time to play hockey. We hope the Team GB Women's fantastic games and results in Rio have inspired you to give it a go or come back to hockey - we can help you find your game.
Players, parents and supporters have been enjoying the sport and social life that thrives around hockey at GHC since 1912. As the the game of hockey has evolved, so has Guildford - we have 7 Men’s teams, 4 Ladies’ teams and a thriving Junior Section encompassing more than 500 children from the ages of 5 to 18 years old. Our Clubhouse is located at Broadwater School in Godalming with two all-weather pitches. The Club is brimming with activity on weekday evenings and 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.
