Vice Chairwoman
Jo Atherton

Role: Vice Chairwoman

Year Appointed: 2022

Year Joined BHC: ​1999

Jo's Bio: 

"I Joined BHC in 1999 after finishing Uni and moving back to the area. My reason was to get exercise and to meet new people.

I have now been with the club over 20 years, only having a gap to have my 2 children.

I am currently Ladies club captain which entails:

  • Welcoming new people to the club

  • Being a contact point for the ladies section

  • Working with the captains and coaches to select the teams each week.

  • Organising development games 

  • Being part of the committee to discuss BHC as a whole.

In summary, my role is to make sure the Ladies section is happy. 

The reason I want to be involved is:

  1. I like the fact BHC welcomes people of any age and ability and makes them feel at home so they can enjoy playing hockey at Banbury. 

  2. I have predominantly played in the middle teams of the Ladies section and I love to see the juniors join the ladies section and gradually move up through the teams to hopefully end up playing for the 1st team. 

  3. I am proud each week that a town the size of Banbury manages to produce so many Ladies, Mens and Junior hockey teams. "
