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 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.
ALL members are invited to attend Wallingford Hockey Club’s annual general meeting later this month. This year’s AGM takes place on Monday, May 21st at 7.30pm in the Rugby Room.
To access the key documents for the AGM, please log in at the bottom of this page and go to Member Facilities - Club AGM 2018.
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!
SOME of our members proved just why we are such a close-knit club by paying a visit to Alan Holmes.
Claire Satchwell, Hatty Wood and John Atkins went to Wallingford Hospital last week for a catch-up and to show him a new accolade which was presented for the first time at our annual dinner. Named in his honour, Hatty received the Alan Holmes Umpire of the Year prize and they presented him with his very own award to keep. Hatty outdid herself, with a bit of professional help, in getting Alan up on to his feet and walking. Claire said: “What a lovely afternoon. I felt part of something very special. It was made even more special by the obvious signs that other club members had been down to see Alan - the community spirit is strong at Wallingford.”
