Why Slough Hockey Club
Established in 1921, Slough Hockey Club is one of the most successful hockey clubs in England ever. For more than 30 years the women in particular have remained in the top flight, reguarly competing on the national and international stage.
Consisting of eight teams and 500+ players, it has an extensive history of winning major elite honours at National and European level. Throughout the decades many of the club players have represented their country at International levels, a theme that continues today.
At the Rio Olympics 2016 we had 5 Slough players in the gold medal winning, history making team.
Today the women's 1st team still play at National league level, with the men 1st team also taking their first step into xx league for season 21/22, just one below the men's national league.
The club's success today is due to the dedication of its members and supporters who all work tirelessly together as one big family to continue to grow the club as a central community to the Slough area whilst also aiming to attract the very best talent from around the South East of England.
This is supported by an ever-growing junior section that has strong local links with schools within the locality.
