5 men's teams, 4 ladies' teams and too many boys' and girls' teams to mention playing at a vast range of ability levels from regional hockey to a very much slower pace of the game
Our Wildcats coaching takes in boys and girls from age 5 and we have members playing league hockey in their 70s
Our all-weather pitch is our own so we look after it! Wallingford Sports Park, our home, provides us with our own club hut, club room with bar, our own club changing rooms and many opportunities to play other sports such as tennis, squash and even petanque
We offer all of this for some of the cheapest club membership and match fees in southern England, offering discounted membership fees for new members and service personnel
Whether you're a current player looking for a new club or looking to return to hockey after a while we have something to offer you. We are also offering half price membership for all new senior members.
Keep an eye on the calendar below for details of social events and training and please do get in touch with one of our Club Captains for more information.
WALLINGFORD's ladies 1s/2s produced an encouraging display but were ultimately beaten 3-2 by Witney in their Oxfordshire Summer League opener.
Goals from Josie and Emma put the side ahead at half time in the Pool B game at Oxford Hawks. However, Witney equalised and went on to net a cruel late winner on a cool evening. Wallingford went behind early on but responded brilliantly to level. Phil picked out Josie at the top of the D for her to fire high into the net. Wallingford were more than holding their own against a strong Witney side. And they took a 2-1 lead into the break when Emma scored following a well-worked short corner routine. Witney equalised with a penalty flick, but found themselves under pressure late on. Wallingford won a series of short corners and looked like they were going to claim victory. But Phil fired just wide and Emma saw an effort blocked. Wallingford were then dealt a cruel blow when Witney broke forward and scored from close range to make it 3-2 with five minutes to go. There was still time for our ladies to win a couple more shorts, but they were unable to find the equaliser they deserved.
WALLINGFORD’S Men’s 1s will spend another season in MBBO Regional Division 1.
Despite a number of encouraging performances after Christmas, the side finished second bottom. Due to relegations in higher leagues, a four team play-off was staged at Woking between Staines (South League Premier Division 2), Maidenhead (MBBO Regional Division 1), Barnes (Hampshire/Surrey Regional 1) and Old Bordenians (Kent/Sussex Regional 1). Staines beat Old Bordenians 2-0 in the final, resulting in only one team dropping down to Wallingford’s division and they keep their place for next season.

The club is really pushing for a social secretary this year. This would involve publicising the club to attract new members, encouraging sponsorship, organising the annual dinner as part of a small committee, as well as social events throughout the season. If you would like to stand for this or any other committee roles, or would like any further information, please get in touch with one of the other club committee members.
IT proved to be a fantastic weekend to be green and white across our Wildcats section.
The under 14 girls were celebrating after finishing third in the HCGL finals. They played some fine hockey in Woking and lost out to eventual winners Southgate. Wallingford produced another great display in the bronze medal play-off, with Anna scoring a hat-trick and Poppy being awarded player of the match for a superb performance in goal.
Wallingford’s Under 12s also had reason to cheer at Old Merchant Taylors School, finishing fourth in the south east regional finals. They produced a fearless performance, conceding only three goals on route to the quarter-finals. Wallingford faced Mid Sussex in the last eight and, after the tie finished level, won a tense penalty shoot-out. Goalkeeper Holly Geggus put in a fine display, with Lucy Shannon, Bea Woodward and Izzie Beard clinical with their flicks. They sadly fell to a 2-0 defeat in their semi-final against Teddington and lost 3-1 to Alton in the bronze medal match. But the girls can be extremely proud of their performances and they will now go through to county development training to try out for the under 13 and 14 squads in the summer.
The future at Wallingford is bright!
