About us:


Old Silhillians Hockey Club

Old Silhillians Hockey Club (OSHC) is one of the largest hockey clubs in England, with a significant membership (just under 500) playing hockey in multiple different ways, in varying formats from U6s to Over 60s.  The Club has a strong local, regional and National reputation, having won European Club of the Year in 2014, and several other words both on and off pitch in recent times.  We have a very strong focus on family and community, and hence are a perfect match for working with local businesses to establish lifelong attachments to both hockey, and the local area.

OSHC has 11 Saturday teams, one mid-week Veterans team, and 17 junior teams (playing on Sundays).  The Silhillians (where the club play) is also home to Warwickshire Hockey, and hence has hundreds of people playing hockey at the site every week of the year.

The hockey club shares a common mission statement with other sports club that use The Silhillians - "To unite the community through SPORTS", and are rapidly growing their reach within the local community, to provide multiple opportunities to participate in sport at any level, offer outreach into local schools, and support the development of local businesses through partnerships, marketing and mutual promotion.  The site offers a perfect venue for social activities and "off pitch" socialising as well.

Why Sponsor Us? 

We are one of the most well known hockey clubs in the Midlands, with a specific focus on juniors, and a diverse range of members based in an affluent area.  We are looking to create long lasting relationships with businesses who want to embrace our history, be part of our future and deliver impact within the Knowle/Dorridge and wider Solihull area - really embracing our aim to be the local sports hub that unites the community.  We will work to create a bespoke sponsorship offering in a mutually beneficial manner so we deliver on both parties shared objectives for maximum impact. 

The club has a flexible approach to sponsorship, with perks ranging from but not limited to:

- Shout outs with your logo and link on social media posts as a thank you.

- Visibility across the social media channels of the club with your logo and hashtags.

- Captive audience of club members for exclusive business promotions.

- Invites to club events such as the end of season awards and weekends of sporting activity for you to be able to promote your products/services e.g. Club Days, Ladies Day etc.

Alternative/supplementary perks can be arranged through negotiation dependent on the level of sponsor commitment, budget and your business objectives.


Every year we take additional steps to improve both the financial sustainability of the club, and the site as a whole, and look to embrace the developments in technology and approach to make our sports as accessible and supported as we can.


Our aspirations are to establish OSHC as one of the most significant players within the England Hockey landscape, continue to support the Solihull community in offering accessible opportunities, and grow our own Sils "family" through improved relationships across all the sports at The Silhillians, and also with local businesses.


We have a rich History & Heritage which we value, but also wish to embrace the opportunities that the future brings.  The Silhillians site is owned by The Old Silhillians Association - the old boys and girls association of Solihull School - and has provided sport to both its alumni, and also the wider community, for several decades.  The Sports sections have competed on the National, and International stage, and with many generations of local families staying involved with the club for 60+ years.
