Hello and a warm welcome to Maidenhead Hockey Club
As the new chairman of the club I am excited at the prospect of working with our members, supporters and the management committee to develop all aspects of this great club. We have some fantastic opportunities to enhance and grow the club in the near future and I will be providing updates on these in due course.
Last season we continued to field five ladies and seven men’s teams every Saturday together with many girls and boy’s junior teams participating in both friendly and competitive matches. I am particularly pleased that the team I play in secured promotion after holding top spot in the league for most of the season, well done guys! I do of course, extend my thanks to everyone who played in and supported all our teams and the club, and long may this continue.
Although we are currently in the ‘off season’ we still have lots of hockey activities going on in and around Maidenhead. We are currently running Back to Hockey sessions 10 till 12 every Sunday morning until 01 July. We also have a Hockey Summer Camp running from the 25th to the 29th July for juniors in the age range 10 to 16. A number our great coaches are also active in the local community and run hockey sessions at local schools on a regular basis.
Some of our senior teams are also competing in a number of Summer Leagues that are aimed at being a more social occasion but this is not always the case! All this makes hockey a great all year round sport!
More information on these activities can be found in the News section of this website.
On the subject of websites, as you can see, this year we have transitioned to Picthero to host and manage our web presence, and make administration of membership, subscriptions, fixtures and team selections much easier. This is an important aspect of the club so it is important that you join the site and take the time to ensure your details on the website are correct. Your Management Committee and team captains will have more information on this if you have any questions.
This summer also see the Rio Olympics where Great Britain men and women’s team can build on their progress at the Hockey Champions Trophy and have a great chance of success. So keep an eye out for the TV schedules so you can cheer on our teams!
Look forward to seeing you soon,
