Gosport Borough Hockey Club (GBHC) is one of the founding members of Hockey in Hampshire. Gosport Hockey Club, as we were known then, along with six other Hampshire based clubs founded the Hampshire Hockey Association in 1898.
Due to unknown circumstances the club disbanded. Many years later in September 1990, Gosport Borough Hockey Club was reborn with the aid of Alan Walker / Dave Lewis / Ron James and Dave Lucas who was a councillor at the time.
Since those times the club has gone from strength to strength. It has seen many changes, moving our “home” pitch from HMS Sultan to our current venue at St. Vincent College and back again. After matches we meet in the Seahorse Pub and we also have a partnership with Gosport Borough Cricket Club whose clubhouse we use for socials, parties and committee meetings
GBHC aims to strengthen our position in the leagues for all our teams. The club is committed in supporting our youth section, and to provide opportunities in player, coaching and umpire development.
GBHC provides its members the opportunity to experience hockey
in a safe, lively and friendly social atmosphere with a strong focus on families. The club celebrated its 25th birthday in 2015 which was our Silver Anniversary.
The Club recognise that our Youth are our future. As a result we invested heavily in this area and since January 2011 we have
held Club First accreditation with England Hockey. This is national recognised accreditation process that ensures the appropriate Child Welfare policies are in place and that we are regularly checked by independent assessors to ensure the standards are maintained.
We hold regular training sessions for our youth section on Wednesday evenings from 1800-1900 and Saturday mornings from 0900-1000. On Saturdays we encourage the parents to join in and get involved alongside their children.
Our senior section has 3 Men’s Teams and 3 Ladies Teams, playing within the Hampshire Hockey League. To recognise the link that the Club has to the foundations of hockey within Hampshire, our Men’s 3rd XI are known as the “1898’s”.
The Club is committed to strengthening our position in the leagues for all our teams. Qualified coaches lead and organise our training sessions for all Club members. Men's and women's training is on Tuesday at HMS Sultan, 1900-2100, and is open to all abilities. First XI team training runs on a Thursday at HMS Sultan, 1900-2100. All adult teams play their Hampshire league matches on Saturdays.
