Hockey

The popularity of field hockey has seen a superb resurgence in recent years, not least because of the success of the GB women at the Rio Olympics. Towcester Hockey Club began in 1982 with a single ladies team. We now run three Saturday league ladies squads, and have an extensive boys and girls junior offering for U8, U10, U12 and U14 age groups.

For enthusiastic hockey fans seeking a fun social side too, we organise a whole raft of activities throughout the year. We’ve made it our quest to make the most of the fantastic modern clubhouse at Towcestrians Sports Club and run many club events there.

We’ve been delighted in recent years to have been able to welcome back many ex-players, whilst still encouraging some of our hockey parents to play whilst their children train. So come and see what we do!

What do we offer?

We currently run three ladies’ teams and have three senior team coaches.

We also have a mixed junior section for both boys and girls, aged 5-17. Teams are coached by three junior coaches, all of whom are qualified and DBS checked. Girls can play in the senior teams from age 13 if selected.

3 Senior Ladies’ Teams – They play in Midlands League Division 2, Northants League Division 1, and Northants Division 2 respectively.

U8s, U10s, U12s, U14s, U16s & U18s – Teams take part in matches on a regular basis.
