Welcome to Abingdon Hockey Club, where we welcome anyone who wants to enjoy hockey and be part of a club. Here at Abingdon we encourage everyone to play to their best ability whilst also encouraging them to participate in all aspects of club life – especially the social side!
About Us: Abingdon Hockey Club is a small, vibrant and friendly club with bags of spirit! We have three men’s teams, three ladies’ teams and one mixed team: so whether you are looking for weekly competitive hockey on a Saturday or a relaxed, friendly run around on a Sunday then we have a team for you! We have players of all levels of experience and of all ages.
Find Us: We train and play our home matches at Tilsley Park in Abingdon, which is conveniently located just off the A34. We therefore have players not only from Abingdon but from a host of surrounding villages, as well as Didcot, Wantage, Grove, Wheatley and Oxford.
Training: Training for both men and women is held at Tilsley Park on Tuesday evenings from 7pm until 9.30pm. This season we are trying something new, and holding training at different times for different groups. We hope that this will enable each player to focus on their own strengths and weaknesses, whilst still giving everyone the opportunity to progress throughout the club. An overlap between the end of one session and the beginning of the next will allow everyone to meet everyone else, and help us to keep that great feeling of belonging, unique to a small club like ours. For full details of training times, please see the Training page.
The Social Side: Here at Abingdon we know that for a lot of people, being part of a club is not just about turning up on a Saturday to play, it is about socialising with your team mates, having fun and attending great social events! That is what gives us that great club and team spirit! We are a friendly bunch and encourage everyone to get involved in the variety of social events on offer throughout the season; from pub and curry nights, to firework displays and bowling, to end of season extravaganzas! Whatever you want to do we can get it covered! To find out more about social events and how to get involved click here.
