About

We are one of the biggest hockey clubs in the South of England and with a total of 15 teams plus 14 junior teams, we cater for a massive range of abilities.

We currently have 8 men’s teams and 7 women’s teams, so whatever your level, you’re guaranteed some action!

Our juniors teams are now (Nov 2018) at full capacity, so we are not taking on new joiners. However we do have a wait-list for places that may become available in January 2019 - please contact bhhc.juniors@gmail.com.

New players
We welcome all players, young and old, so whether you be of international standard – as with a number of the men’s 1st XI (and 6th XI if you believe all claims to fame!) or you simply fancy playing a game or two and haven’t picked up a stick since those good old days out on the wing at school, then email one of the Club Captains and get the ball rolling, send us an email on bhhc.newmembers@gmail.com. At the beginning of each season, we usually run ‘Back to Hockey’ sessions for those who have been away from the sport for a while. We’ll post details of these sessions here on our website, and on our social media channels. For information on our juniors section, check out our specific webpage here.

Practical information
Based at Blatchington Mill School, our two pitches are only a five minute walk from the clubhouse. We play in navy shirts (with a red trim) and red socks. Our away kit is white shirts and white socks. For all our fixtures and contact details for team captains, check out our FixturesLive webpage.

Socials
Hockey aside, the club is a very sociable one, with new members always being made very welcome. There are numerous social nights during the year and there isn’t a Saturday night that goes by without a good bunch of us down at the clubhouse. If you’re new to the area, it’s an ideal way to get know people in and around Brighton. We’ll look forward to seeing you some Saturday night soon at the clubhouse and you can check the calendar for the latest events.

Umpiring
The club are always looking to progress their players and encouraging them to umpire. Umpiring, as a skill, is invaluable to a player. It increases their knowledge of the game and its rules, gives the player an opportunity to observe other players' skills close-up and promotes a sense of empathy to the officials resulting in more respectful play on pitch - which in turn leads to more positive games.
This year, England Hockey are running a number of training courses, and you can find the full list of courses on the England Hockey website.
For those who umpire, as remuneration, the club allows one free match for each game they umpire.

Member benefits
The club offers its members a number of benefits provided by other club members, you can see the latest benefits here.

Brighton and Hove Hockey Club is run by a committee which holds regular meetings, as well as an Annual General Meeting. You can find the club constitution, and related club documents in the . If you have any questions about these documents, then please do contact any of the BHHC Committee members.
