CANTERBURY MENS HOCKEY CLUB
The club field 10 men's sides each week throughout the season, ranging from a development squad, with a mix of youngsters and wise old veterans, all the way through to our 1st XI who play in the NOW:Pensions England Hockey Premier Division. Our 2nd XI play in the London League Premier Division and all other teams, including two veterans sides, play in the Kent / Sussex and Kent Open Leagues at various levels of ability.
Canterbury HC has stars both past and present, including Sean Kerly (GB Olympic Gold Medallist Seoul 1988), Kwan Browne (Trinidad and Tobago Commonwealth Games 2006, 2010 and 2014) working tirelessly as player coach of our 1st XI, together with many aspiring youngsters involved in the England training setup.
Our Club caters for all ages from youngsters to supervets, and all abilities from beginners to internationals. We pride ourselves on the exceptional talent of our 'home grown' players who have come up through our junior section.
Unlike many other clubs competing at the highest level, Canterbury Hockey Club does not have the luxury of a wealthy benefactor; it is run on a purely voluntary basis, relying heavily on sponsorship, donations and fundraising.
The majority of our players even at the top level, have developed through our junior and youth sections from a very early age - an important part of the ethos of the club.
New members and their families are assured a very warm welcome at Canterbury - join us.
