We are a family-friendly hockey club based in Alton, North-East Hampshire. We are a growing club with Eleven competitive adult teams and a thriving Junior Section with eleven age-group teams plus minis playing at festivals.
Our teams compete in the South Central Leagues, Hampshire Cups and England Hockey Cups. Over the last few seasons we have seen many teams win promotion and perform well in the regional competition.
Alton Hockey Club was founded in 1978. Over the years we have grown (up and down) and currently have five men's teams and three ladies' teams.
We have had several of our club go on to represent their country:
We have an ever-growing junior section with players representing their club from U8 to U18 as well as many playing senior hockey from age 13.
We have had great success with the England Hockey Player Pathway - every year we are represented by 30+ Alton players selected for Academy Centres (AC) with a further 8 selected for Performance Centres (PC) as well as two going on to play at National Age Group (England and Wales) level in 2021.
We are a busy club and we certainly 'punch above our weight' considering the size of Alton. We are considered one of the fastest growing clubs within Hampshire.
Whilst we are competitive, we put a large emphasis on participation and having FUN.
We have a thriving social scene with not just social hockey but includes hockey tours, R.A.T. trips, quiz nights, dinner dances, summer festivals (adult)
