Bishop’s Stortford Hockey Club – Help support one of the fastest growing clubs in the country.
Bishop’s Stortford Hockey Club is one of the largest hockey clubs in England with over 700 members across 10 adult and 21 junior teams playing regularly across the year.
We celebrate our 70th anniversary season in 2018/19: the club has grown steadily over that time but seen an explosion in growth over the last 10 years following Olympic success in 2012 and 2016.
As a family club, we’re committed to offering hockey for everyone whatever their age or ability and giving them access to high quality coaching and support to play our sport.
Club members are regularly selected for international honours at Masters level, junior county and regional hockey, and our U16 Boys reached the national finals in 2018.
We regularly run coaching in primary schools and other outreach in the BS area led by some of our most experienced members.
We also offer a range of other chances to get involved including our Back to Hockey initiative for ‘lapsed’ players or adult beginners, Parent & Child matches, and our Flyerz Disabled Hockey initiative.
Members of the club range from 5 - 70 years old, but we are seeing massive growth in our junior section and particularly girls. The club is situated in Bishop's Stortford right next to Stansted Airport and is a rapidly growing commuter town to London.
