Firstly, thank you for checking out our website.
Southend and Benfleet Hockey Club was formed in 2010 with just the one ladies team. Success soon followed as the ladies worked their way through the Essex League divisions and earned their place in the East League.
The club has grown year on year and for the 20/21 season we now have four ladies teams playing in the East Leagues. The season runs from September through to April with games played each week on a Saturday and training sessions on a Wednesday evening.
We also enter two teams into the Essex Indoor League, and from May to August three teams in various summer leagues. Tournaments are held through the year and we partner with Rochford Men’s Club to hold our own tournament in September.
We enter our junior section, boys and girls between the ages of (6 to 13) into the Essex Mini Hockey League U10/U12/U14. Training for the juniors is held weekly on a Monday evening.
Training sessions for both adults and juniors of all abilities is provided by our qualified team of coaches and is held at The King Edmund School in Rochford.
In 2019 we were awarded England Hockey’s Clubmark accreditation. Clubmark provides recognition to high quality clubs and means we are recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling club for all participants.
