Section Logo WomenWelcome!

Women's hockey is thriving at GHC! We are adding two new teams and will have 8 teams in the new re-structured England Hockey leagues from 2021/22!

Come and give it a go - we have something for all ability and experience levels from beginners and those getting back to hockey to those pushing for National League.

We pride ourselves on providing fun and engaging hockey for all.

Please contact our Women's Section Captain, Jo Collins, for more information:


Clubhouse and Pitches

DJI 0044 smallOur Clubhouse is located behind Broadwater School - GU7 3BW - where we have access to two newly re-laid pitches and are building a practice/warm-up area.

We also use Charterhouse - GU7 2RS - where we have access to two excellent quality pitches.

After each home game we invite our opposition and umpires to join us in the clubhouse for a hot meal and a cup of tea or a beverage (or two!) from the bar.

You are Very Welcome

We welcome new members at all levels as we have a wide spread of abilities across our membership. Please contact for more information about our Women's section or click on any of the names in the table above or on our Club Contacts page.

Our Women's Section has more than 80 members with 8 teams entered into Leagues, indoor hockey and thriving Back to Hockey sessions for those who are new to the sport or who haven't touched a stick in some time.

Many of our Juniors are invited to train and play with our Women's teams; our coaches work with individual players to manage this transition when it is right for the player.

We have our own Clubhouse overlooking two newly re-laid astropitches (re-laid in 2019 and 2021). We are building a new practice area as well for warm-ups and extra training sessions.

Our Back to Hockey sessions are designed for women who maybe haven't touched a hockey stick since their youth and are looking to brush up on their skills, have some fun, get fit or meet people (or all of the above). Beginners are also welcome. Many of those who come eventually play in a match once their confidence is up and if they so choose - no pressure, but the opportunity is there for it.
