Welcome to Holcombe Hockey Club.
Our club vision is to provide a home for hockey and our mission statements drive that vision forward. You will always be made to feel at home within Holcombe Park.
With our outdoor Mens and Ladies 1XI now in the National Premier League, they come up against some tough opposition. Our 1XI players are committed to performing to the highest standard, and the club is firmly behind their aspirations.
Our Mens 1XI features a host of Great Britain and England stars; Barry Middleton (GB & England Captain), Dan Fox, Iain Lewers, Sam Ward, and George Pinner, alongside South African international Jonty Robinson, whilst our Ladies roster includes England internationals Shona McCallin, Nicola White and Ellie Watton; Wales internationals Sarah Jones and Leah Wilkinson; and South African internationals Quanita Bobbs and Erin Hunter. These players believe in what we are trying to achieve and have expressed a desire to be part of the progression of the club. The management of 10 mens teams and 5 ladies teams, ensuring each side has a full squad, takes some dedicated individuals.
There is great opportunity for new players to find a comfortable playing level and enjoy competitive hockey. A close eye is kept on established players to ensure those that are demonstrating good potential are recognised and developed. Our junior section continues to go from strength to strength and we have an established support team developing the section. Junior training on a Sunday morning currently attracts over 200 participants.
Our coaches include GB double-Olympian Julian Halls (Mens 1XI) and Wales Women Head Coach Kevin Johnson (Ladies 1XI). Both coaches bring a wealth of experience to the club. Julian and Kevin support coach education throughout the club and believe in growing the player pathway from the junior to adult section. We also have dedicated coaches for every team, ensuring consistent training and development throughout.

We look forward to welcoming you to our ‘home of hockey’!
