Welcome to Sonning!
Sonning Hockey Club had been around, in one form or another, for over 60 years.
We can trace our history back to Reading YMCA who, under 'founder' John Poole, formed a mens and a mixed side in 1946. The first teams were called the 'Travaux Hockey Club' and recruited mainly from local authority nationalised industries. Early in 1960, a ladies side was formed at the Royal County of Berkshire Sports and Social Club. This side and the Travaux Club merged under the Sonning Hockey Club banner in 1982, at the time running two mens teams, two ladies teams, and a mixed team. From there, Sonning Hockey Club has gone from strength to strength.
Fast-forward to 2023 and we're now running 6 men's teams, 6 ladies' teams (including a full vets side), and a rapidly growing Colts (juniors) section.
We now have a state-of-the-art new pitch, a great club-house, ex-Olympians coaching across the club, and a fantastic new kit sponsorship with Canterbury and Eight Wealth Management.
We're always looking for new players! Whatever your age or ability, you're assured of a warm welcome, some competitive hockey and a host of social events. Just get in touch!
