Club history

Letchworth Hockey Club was formed following a meeting of local hockey players at The Anchor Pub, Hitchin on 5 April 1960 and started playing with 2 Men’s teams at the Baldock Road Recreation Ground. Subsequently they moved to Letchworth Corner in Muddy Lane to join Letchworth Cricket Club and help justify funding for the building of a new Clubhouse. In 1974, the Ladies section was formed and Ladies changing facilities along with Squash Courts were built at Letchworth Corner.

The Hockey and Cricket Clubs moved to Whitethorn Lane in 1996 and with major grants from Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, The Football Trust and The National Lottery, a new Astroturf Hockey Pitch was laid and the Clubhouse refurbished to provide a showpiece sports facility in North Herts. Since 1975 the Club has run 10 Adult teams (6 Men and 4 Ladies) playing at County, Regional and National level plus a number of Junior teams.

In March 2010 the Club celebrated the 50th Anniversary of its 1960 foundation, with a weekend of festivities at the Letchworth Corner Sports Club, Whitethorn Lane, including Men’s and Ladies Representative Hockey Games. It was also an opportunity for Life Members, Vice Presidents and previous members and players to join the celebrations.
