About the Club

Banbury Hockey Club, founded in 1946, has its home ground and club house at the North Oxfordshire Academy and this has been its home for the last ten years.

 

The club has five Men’s and five Ladies teams as well as very successful Mixed, Vets and Summer League teams. The club also now has a thriving junior section that has over 200 children and 8 junior teams training and playing for Banbury Hockey Club.

 

The Men’s 1st team play their hockey in the South Premier Division. In recent times they have won the England Hockey Men’s Trophy three times, having reached the final on six occasions since 2004. They have had two of their juniors represent England and Wales U18 as well as attracting players from New Zealand and Australia.

 

The Ladies 1st team play in the 3 Counties League, Premier Division 1. In 2006 they won the England Hockey Ladies Vase and have seen a number of their juniors move straight from Banbury into the National League.

Furthermore, the club’s Mixed team won two mixed cups in the 2000s! As well as these achievements, BHC has also had one player representing England’s Men’s hockey team and two representing England’s Mixed team. We have also had one player who was the England Mixed hockey team coach for two years.
