Why Sponsor Us?
Increased brand awareness in our community
Do you want to raise the profile of your organisation? Gore Court Hockey Club has an array of sponsorship opportunities which can be tailored to meet your objectives. Through sponsorship, our club will promote your company in a wide variety of ways, increasing your brand awareness, and therefore enriching the profile of your business in our community.
Participation in team sports improves self-esteem, mental discipline and social skills
Gore Court Hockey Club make training and development fun, we encourage our players to support each other and we celebrate individual achievements and success as a whole.
Although exercise and sport in general can have an incredible effect on people’s mental health and wellbeing, research has shown that there are more impactful mental health benefits of team sports.
In addition to wellbeing and the physical benefits of team sports, there are also valuable life skills and lessons young people can learn including manners, respect and boundaries on and off the pitch; practicing persistence, meeting new friends and boosting confidence.
We’d love for you to get involved and see the positive impact hockey can have on players.
Get involved in grassroots sport and remove economic barriers making sport affordable and accessible for all
Sponsorship of a grassroots sport delivers a much higher return on investment than traditional advertising. This is because sponsorship allows your business to become directly involved in activities that are highly valued by local consumers.
Consumers are known to form strong positive associations with sponsors who support the development of grassroots sport and contribute to the local community. With eight out of ten consumers preferring to believe in what a company does rather than what it says, it’s easy to see why many businesses are choosing to sponsor hockey clubs like ours as a way of maximising their marketing return.
By directly supporting us, you’re helping to remove economic barriers — making sport affordable and inclusive for all.

The Club Today
Welcome to Gore Court Hockey Club in Sittingbourne, Kent where we’ve been playing hockey since 1908. We currently field five men’s teams and three ladies’ teams as well as junior teams in the U8, U10. U12 and U14 age groups.
We’re a friendly club with a lengthy history as detailed below!
History of the Club
Gore Court Hockey Club started its life and that of hockey in Sittingboure, as "Sittingbourne Hockey Club" in 1908, playing at bell road and by the end of their first season, the club had grown to an incredible fifty members.
In 1929, the club moved to The Grove and in due course saw many seasons at the highest leagues in the country and numerous overseas trips, before moving to our current location at Westlands Secondary School in Sittingbourne for our playing facility.
With membership and crowd attendances rising, we have ambitious plans to continue to develop the infrastructure at the club.
Naturally, we want to support our sponsors and build them in to our club on a strategic level — allowing all of our partners to benefit from our ever-improving facilities, expanding audience and our community involvement.
