To make sure we can continue playing hockey in Stafford for the next 150 years, we are aiming to build an AstroTurf hockey pitch on our own land at Riverway. The pitch will be a fantastic resource for the town and will be a community hub, investing in the health and future of Stafford’s children. You can now sponsor a square of the pitch by clicking here.
Stafford Hockey Club
Established in 1864, the hockey club is Stafford’s oldest sports club and currently runs six adult teams, five of which compete in the Midlands Regional Hockey Association (MRHA) leagues. The club is part of the wider Stafford Cricket & Hockey Club and is closely affiliated with the the ladies club which currently runs five adult teams. There is an up and coming junior development programme with a packed training programme and the club is planning local primary school and other community links. We truly do welcome all abilities so if you are the next Barry Middleton or don’t even know how to hold a stick, you will be made to feel welcome.
And it’s not just about the sport. We have a packed social calendar with our christmas party, end of season do, fireworks, quiz nights, race nights and more. The highlight of the year comes with an annual three day beer, music and hockey festival in April.
We take our responsibilities seriously and conform to England Hockey’s codes of conduct and welfare. We also hold a comprehensive insurance policy covering playing related injuries.
