Membership Fee

A club subscription of £365 is charged per season. This can be paid in one sum, or by instalment. Payment must be set up by 31st October each season.

Goalkeepers with their own kit do not pay a membership fee but do pay match fees.

HWHC run many Back to Hockey sessions throughout the year.

These sessions are the perfect opportunity to get back into hockey, take up the sport for the first time, or just meet new people!

The sessions are fun, social and informal, so do not worry if you are a little apprehensive, unsure of the rules or worried that you won’t know anyone. HWHC's coaches gently guide participants through a series of fun and interactive sessions, all in a super-friendly and relaxed environment.

The next Back to Hockey sessions are throughout November:

Monday, 6.30pm - 8pm at Paddington Recreation Ground

Club kit

Our club kit supplier is Hawkin Sport.

Protective kit

We recommend that all players wear shin pads and a mouth guard for training sessions and matches. Players under 18 are not allowed to take part without this protection.

If you are looking to get a mouth guard fitted by the dentist, Willow Tree Dental in Swiss Cottage offers a discount to HWHC members.

When does league hockey start?

League fixtures start in September and run until Easter. Senior fixtures are played on Saturdays between 10am and 6pm.

How does selection for teams work?

New joiners will be invited to play for a team that Coaches and team captains feel is the appropriate level. This will then be continually monitored along with existing members of the club. Selection meetings are held regularly to discuss the movement of players across the teams depending on ability, commitment and performance.

Players who have not paid membership or match fees are not eligible for selection for any team.
