Founded in 1988 and based in Tower Hamlets in East London, Wapping Hockey Club is one of the UK’s largest field hockey clubs and provides affordable membership fees in the heart of central London.
The club is proud to have 11 men’s teams, 8 women’s teams as well as dedicated Masters teams. Our Men’s 1st XI play in the East Premier A League and the Ladies' 1st X1 in East Premier League with all our other men's and ladies teams playing in the East and Essex Leagues.
Wapping Hockey Club also has two mixed teams (the Printers and Pirates) for social hockey and provides development opportunities for budding umpires and coaches. In addition, as part of our mission to broaden access to hockey in East London, the club is extremely proud of its 'Wapping Kidds' youth team, dedicated to the development of young hockey players of all ages and ability levels and 'Wapping Flyerz', which ensures hockey can be accessed by people with special needs.
We train and play throughout the year at our two purpose built hockey facilities - England Hockey’s National Stadium, Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre at the Olympic Park in Stratford and the John Orwell Sports Centre in Wapping (featuring a recently relaid pitch and amazing city skyline views). Both of our venues have covered spectator seating and hot and cold food and drinks available.
With regular socials, weekly fitness, training and matches, our friendly club is a great place for players of all ages and abilities.
