I am aware that some members have questioned the policy of charging entry for L1s and M1s fixtures. We have experimented with charging entry for several seasons now and this is in line with other National League clubs and England Hockey’s wish to promote hockey as a high-quality sport. With so many international players at the club, we believe that a charge of £5.00 per match (or for a double-header) represents good value, especially as it includes a free programme (for all home matches). All funds raised through ticket sales will go towards the cost of replacing the water-based...Read More
On 2 September, an EGM took place to formally elect Carolyn Llewellyn as Vice-Captain of the club (standing, in pink, on the right).

What a fantastic weekend it was at Lee Valley, with our men’s and ladies’ first teams winning their respective National League play-off finals on Sunday. For the men, the sense of unbounded joy was tangible, tinged with a hint of relief for some of the players. On previous occasions the team had fallen at the penultimate or final hurdle, and many questioned their ability to perform under pressure. How they confounded the doubters. David Beckett’s match winning penalty shuffle brought a tense and closely-fought match to a thrilling finale. To come back from a 0-3 deficit against Wimbledon –...Read More
