Guildford Hockey Club
Whether you're 5 or 65, there's never been a better time to play hockey. 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, 5 Ladies’ teams, Mixed hockey and a thriving Junior Section with 600 children from 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 with training, matches and 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.
Under 12 Boys and Girls in County Medals
The Under 12 Boys and Girls A teams both earned bronze medals in the Surrey County Cup Finals. This qualifies the Boys for the South Regional Finals coming up in April.
Also a massive well done and congratulations to the Under 12 Boys B team who won Silver in the Surrey Plate competition. The boys didn't lose a match all day, scoring 16 goals and letting in 0 - though the penalty shoot-out didn't go their way hence silver instead of gold.

GHC Director of Junior Coaching
We are thrilled to announce the appointment of two-time Olympian Dan Fox as GHC's Director of Junior Coaching.
Our Junior Section has been improving year on year both in numbers of young players we attract and also in the quality of what they achieve as individuals and teams. The past five years have seen GHC Junior teams in ten National Finals including three National Champions and many awards at Regional, County and even International level.
And we have more players than ever before succeeding in the England Hockey Player Pathway, including a handful who competed in the recent National Selection tournament.
This progress has been thanks to our huge and dedicated band of volunteer parents and siblings, without whom GHC wouldn't exist. We recognised two seasons ago, however, that introducing professional coaching would benefit our players and volunteer coaches alike and that as the game of hockey progresses, so do we need to keep improving to deliver the best hockey experience we can for our junior players.
The Director of Coaching role is one that will build upon our successes by improving the quality and learning of our large coaching pool. Read about the role from Dan's letter to the coaches here.
Dan is a two-time Olympian (2012, 2016) with 164 England and Great Britain caps. He was named UK Sports Writer of the Year 2016 and England Hockey Performance Player 2017. He played his most recent club hockey with Holcombe HC including in the Euro Hockey League.
Dan is Director of Hockey at Charterhouse and coaches with England Hockey (U21s, U18s, Performance Centres and more). We are really looking forward to the season!
National Champions 2017 - Under 14 Girls!!
GHC Under 14 Girls won the England Hockey National Clubs Championships Sunday 14th May at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre.
In what the EH announcer described as unprecedented, all four places in the pool were decided on penalty flicks with Guildford overcoming Spencer to top the group for progression to the Gold medal match. A very tense final against Surbiton ended 0-0 resulting in the team's second shoot-out of the day which was won at 3-1 following excellent flicks from the takers and three outstanding saves!
Fantastic day - congratulations and well done to all!
