Hampstead and Westminster Hockey Club

Hampstead and Westminster Hockey Club provides opportunities for men, women and children of all abilities and backgrounds to play hockey in the local community.

Founded 1894

  • Mission statement

    Hampstead and Westminster Hockey Club promote community participation in grass roots sports for the community and in local schools.

    This includes:

    • Outreach satellite clubs in local junior and free schools
    • Encouraging participation in hockey in London at all levels and ages for both sexes, developing a high physical and moral standard in players
    • Offering training opportunities for volunteers in the instruction of playing hockey

    HWHC was set up more than 100 years ago and since then has established itself as a significant hockey presence in central London, running around 19 teams each week, encompassing all levels of ability (from National to Regional Leagues), including 2 veterans teams and 4 junior age-groups for over 200 juniors.

    HWHC invests in grassroots sports by, attracting top-flight coaches, Olympians and players and allowing their skills and experience to be of benefit to the rest of the clubs, community programmes and outreach sessions to schools to develop their interest in the sport, and in doing so increase their fitness levels, their personal discipline and ability to work in teams.

    The club is committed to significantly increasing the offering of diverse sports in the community, and for all sports to be accessible to everyone. To do this we must increase our pitch capacity so we can open up to more juniors.

  • Aims

    Hampstead and Westminster Hockey Club aims to:

    • Help fund the council's replacement and maintenance of astro-turf pitches in order to benefit all players. Without the additional pitch space we cannot expand our junior and adult capacity.
    • Expand our youth programme and increase our junior section for over 200 children by providing quality coaching and an outreach programme to local state schools.
