The Club has already enjoyed huge success and with a solid foundation now in place the Club is looking to the future and pressing ahead with its ambitious development plans. One of the driving forces of the club is the ambition to create one of the leading hockey clubs in England at both Senior and Junior level.
The Men’s 1st XI currently play in the South Premier Hockey League whilst the Ladies' 1st XI play in the East Division 1 South. The remaining 8 Men’s sides (including a Vets and SuperVets side) compete in either the London or Kent Leagues. The Ladies' 2nd XI compete in East League Division 2 South East and the remaining 4 Ladies' sides compete in the Kent Leagues.
Junior development is viewed as critical for future success of the Club and has a thriving section with over 300 children taking part every weekend ageing from 8 to 18.
We are a hard working club that supports youth development in the community and have a number of ties to local schools and are setting up partnerships with the other leading hockey schools in the area. Above all the Club is part of the local area – we very much see ourselves as part of the local community and hope that this association will grow as the Club does.
We offer a friendly family environment that engenders both fun and success.

New Member Discounts
As we continue in our ambition to grow and become a stronger club; I would like to remind you about our introduce a friend deal. This gives you (as the introducer) for a full member £80 match fee credit and your friend, family member or colleague £80 off their membership.
The above offer is reduced for part season and reduced subscription rates (e.g. student). The match fee credit is applied to future games once membership payments are fully up to date by both parties, and only applicable to the existing member.
On top of the referral incentive, for brand new members we will continue to offer a first season discount, which works out to a 33% discount. We are therefore offering new adult memberships for £160 and a student rate of £100.
All other discounts are at the discretion of the committee.
As we now have Katie Fielder in the role of membership secretary we are keen to ensure our database is kept up to date. Please complete either the online membership form or the paper membership form. For all U16/U18 girls & U18 boys we also require a parental consent form completed. We appreciate your co-operation in this.
Match fees this season continue to be £10 per game for senior members. Full time student & Junior match fees are £10 at home and £5 for away games.
In our continued effort to improve the club’s cash flow we are again offering members the option to cover their match fees for the whole season in one upfront payment of £190. This does not include pre-season.
