Wakefield Hockey Club (WHC) was founded in 1899, and is one of the premier hockey clubs in the North and Country. In 2007 the club achieved England Hockey’s ‘Clubs 1st Award’.
Our Ladies 1st XI teams enjoy a high profile, playing in the National Conference North League, whilst the Men’s 1st XI play North Hockey Men’s League Premier Division.
WHC runs 8 men’s teams, 5 ladies teams, a thriving junior section (with over 300 members and 20 teams) and a Flyerz section for players with disabilities.
WHC has a history of producing international players ranging from U16 to National and Master/Vet’s squads; along with many other representatives for their county and region. We have two Olympic standard water based pitches (currently the only Northern Club to boast these), great changing facilities, clubhouse and grounds.
The club is one of only ten sites in the UK to be classed as a hockey academy by England Hockey, and has played host a variety of England Hockey county, regional, national tournaments and international matches. WHC was also a Pre-2012 Olympic Games Training Camp for the Chinese international squad.
