On Saturday 2 February, it couldn’t be bigger, it is Blackheath v Blackheath. The ladies top two teams clash in the Kent Women’s Hockey League. The match takes place at College Meadow at 3pm.
Our coaches Jeanette, Vicky and Sally will all be in action, along with current and former juniors Emma Huxley and Hannah Richmond. Come along and give them a cheer!
We are hoping to make it a club day and give our girls a chance to get a sense of the future. So put the date in your diaries and watch this space for more details.
2019 sees the launch of the new international FIH Pro League. Two leagues – one men’s and one women’s, each comprising nine of the best hockey nations. 144 matches will be staged around the world, culminating in a Grand Final in June in the Netherlands.
We are encouraging Blackheath kids to attend the Great Britain and Argentina double header when the two nations men’s and women’s teams face each other at Lea Valley on Saturday 18 May. And Great Britain Hockey have given the club a unique chance to get tickets before they go on general sale.

Then it is another big double header against New Zealand at the home of the Harlequins on Sunday 23 June. We are looking to organise a group trip. Demand is high, if you are interested please email Niall
It would be wonderful to be able to have a big Blackheath presence there too.
