How long does the season last?

The regular league season runs from the start of September to the end of March/start of April.

We also run a Summer League from May to late August.

Do you have summer hockey, and how does it work for new people?

Summer is a great time to get involved with our club, as well as an opportunity for club members to get to play with members they dont usually.
Summer hockey is open to all whether existing members, or potential new members. All abilities welcome, so come along for some summer fun!
We offer both Ladies and a Mens Team which we enter into a league every year.
Cost is roughly £5 -£7 per game.

Is there training over the summer?

There is no summer training, although fitness sessions are organised from early July on a weekly basis.View our training information here.

When do you play matches?

All adult league matches are played on a Saturday at various times. Summer games are often mid-week evenings. Juniors usually play on Sundays.

What are your subs?

Harrow operates a standing order system to covers subs, match fees and training fees which are paid in a number of payments across the season. Our subs are easily comparable to other clubs across North London with discounts available for students and juniors.

Open Day is our welcome back/welcome to the club day. We organise mixed tournaments, taster sessions, beat the goalie and lots of other fun games at our home pitch.

Open Day is normally held on the first Saturday of September each year. We have some photos of our club day in our gallery.
