Who are we? Where do we play? When do we train? What did I come in here for?
Come and play with us!Based in south-east London and Kent, Remnants Hockey Club is recruiting gay-friendly players of all abilities for the 2016-17 season. We field a women's team in the Kent League, currently in Division 4.
Where we play
Our home pitch for (nearly all) games this season is Honor Oak Park, a.k.a. HOP, in Brockley Rise, London SE23 1NW. It's owned by King's College London, and is great to play on thanks to a multi-million pound refurb a couple of years ago. (And yes, there's no "u" in Honor Oak Park!)
If you are coming by public transport, the pitch is about 5 minutes' walk from both Honor Oak Park station (Overground from Canada Water/Whitechapel etc, trains from London Bridge) and Crofton Park station (trains from Blackfriars/Elephant). If you're driving, the postcode SE23 1NW on a satnav will take you just past the pitch so keep your eyes open :-) There's free parking at the pitch, and nice changing rooms.
Last season we trained and played at Sedgehill School on Beckenham Hill Road, London SE6 3QW (use the Beckenham Hill Road entrance to the car park by the astro). It's near Beckenham Hill station, which is served by two trains an hour from central London (Elephant & Castle/Blackfriars) and it's on the 54 bus route (Woolwich-Lewisham-Catford-Beckenham-Elmer's End).
When/where we train
This season we will be training with New Beccs hockey club at their pitch on Mondays from 7.30-9.00pm at HSBC Sports and Social Club, Lennard
Road, Beckenham, BR3 1QW. General fitness is held within the grounds
from 7.30-8pm, and skills training on the astroturf from 8-9pm. After training we rehydrate in the clubhouse - essential strategizing time.
When we play matches
We play on Saturdays. Home matches are at HOP (see above) mostly at 12.30pm. Away matches are also on Saturdays but times vary. Since we play in the Kent league, matches are in south east London and Kent. The season runs from September to April. Check the match times on our fixtures page. Supporters are very welcome!
Training starts on Monday 5th September 2016.
