Welcome to Bournemouth Hockey Club Men’s section

We are extremely fortunate to have five men’s teams covering all levels of ability in the South Hockey League & one vets team representing Bournemouth Hockey Club in the Wessex Masters Hockey League.

Our 1st XI play in South Premier Division 2, whilst our men’s 2s, 3s, 4s & 5s play in various Hampshire Hockey Leagues. Our vets play in Wessex Masters Division 2. So no matter what your standard is, we’re pretty sure you’ll find a team to suit your ability and playing preference at our fantastic club!

Our men train on Thursday evenings from 8pm.

We have access to two pitches at our training ground at Chapel Gate so there is plenty of opportunity to mingle with other teams or focus on your own development and when you’re worn out you can enjoy a refreshing pint in the club bar afterwards.

Our men’s club captain is Robbie Whiting. If you’re interested in joining the club or coming along to training to see what its all about, drop him an email in the first instance.
