Section Logo MenWelcome!

Guildford Hockey Club offers fun, competitive hockey for players at every level. Training with outstanding coaches takes place on weekday evenings and matches run each Saturday from September to April. 

We added two teams in the past two seasons and are adding two more for 2021/22 and beyond! We also offer Back2Hockey sessions on Friday evenings, mixed hockey on Sundays and chances to play as a family during the regular season and throughout the summer.


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.

This season we look forward to being part of the new England Hockey South East Area - the green dsection on the New Area Map below.


New Leagues - South East Area

England Hockey New Area Map website

South East is one of 8 new Areas goverened by England Hockey.

West is one of two new Sub-Areas, the other is East.

Oaks is one of three new Sub-Areas, the other two are Martlets and Invicta. These correspond roughly to the previous Surrey, Sussex and Kent county areas.

 

 

 

The new league structure is below:

  • Our Men's 1st XI play in the South East Area Men's Premier League (MPrem).
  • Below that are two Division 1 Leagues: West (MW1) and East (M1E).
  • And there are three Sub-Areas called Oaks, Martlets and Invicta. GHC play in the Men's Oaks Leagues (MO1, MO2, MO3...).

New members are welcome at every level and we very much look forward to seeing you at Guildford Hockey Club in the near future. Please get in touch with if you would like to talk to someone about joining.


While it is hoped that players in all teams are available every weekend it is acknowledged that this is not always possible and so teams operate a pool system, sharing players when necessary/beneficial. Our subscription and match fee system works to provide value for all - please see details here.

All members have the opportunity to train and improve. Training evenings take place on Tuesdays (1st squad) and Thursday (1st/2nd squad), and Wednesdays (all other teams). We provide excellent coaching at every level. We also offer Summer Hockey and other playing opportunities on an ad hoc basis.

We have a proud record of success at Guildford Hockey Club, which combined with our outstanding facilities, lively social scene, and forward-looking management set-up, provides an attractive experience; as we like to say: "a Great Place to Play"!

We hope that you will come and see for yourself.
