23 Sep 2014 : New Ladies Development Team
This season, for the first time a long while, Alton Hockey Club are fielding two ladies teams. The new "Development Team" is to encourage young players from junior hockey into adult hockey, to coax people back into hockey out of retirement and to welcome anybody who wants to try out hockey for the first time, irrespective of age. The idea is to play some friendly games over the season with no obligation to commit to weekly training or games.

The first game is this coming weekend, 27th September at Haslemere.

If you would like to be involved, or know someone who does, please be in contact with either Vicky ( or Steph ( who will be able to give you more information.

The more the merrier!

03 Dec 2013 : Rule Change

The International Hockey Federation (FIH) have confirmed that the Mandatory Experimental Own Goal Rule will no longer be within the Rules of Hockey with effect from 1 September 2014.

The Own Goal Rule will remain in place until then. However from 1 February 2014 it will not apply in international hockey. Also, national assocations may continue to apply the rule in order to conclude competitions where the rule has been played. However, this is not mandatory.
