Welcome to Leicester City Hockey Club. Established in 1894 as Leicester Ladies Hockey Club, we were one of the oldest and most successful hockey clubs in England. In 2018 we opened our doors to men and now have a thriving club that offers hockey to boys and girls, men and women from the ages of 7 upwards.
In April 2019 with the support of Leicester City Council, we took over a city centre venue (St Margaret's Pastures) and are currently redeveloping the site so that the whole club can be based there. We changed our name to Leicester City Hockey Club to reflect this new home.
We have 7 senior teams (5 women, 2 men) and many junior teams offering competitive hockey from local leagues and cups up to National League levels. We welcome players, umpires, coaches and supporters of all ages and abilities and always try to accommodate everyone who would like to pick up a stick.
We gained our Clubmark in 2017 which is accredited by England Hockey and offer a safe and supportive environment for all our players to develop and thrive as hockey players and individuals.
