Training is on Tuesdays and Thursdays at HBL.

Last season saw the Men’s 1st XI compete in the National Premier League for the first time in the club’s 106 year history. It was always going to be a tough season making the step up from Conference hockey to Premier League hockey, but the squad did themselves, and the club, proud by avoiding automatic relegation and retaining their Premier League status through the playoffs.

The 2018/19 season is going to be another exciting one as they get to have another crack at playing at the very top level of domestic hockey in both outdoor and indoor formats of the game. This places us firmly amongst England’s elite teams – being one of only 7 teams to play in both the indoor and outdoor Premier Divisions.

We are looking forward to competing at the highest level and welcoming the best club sides in the country to our superb hybrid pitch at Hollybush Lane. It could not be a more exciting time to be part of Sevenoaks Hockey Club.

We are player-coached by Duncan Parnis, who is moving into his fifth season with the squad, whilst also occupying the role of Director of Coaching for the whole club. Duncan has had a huge impact since his arrival; achieving two outdoor promotions in his first three seasons, taking us from the South Premier Division One to the National Premier League. Duncan brings copious amounts of experience, structure and professionalism to the club, as well as an infectious enthusiasm and ambition for us to continue to progress.

The squad is blessed with a number of talented players and with an average age of only 25, the future looks very bright!  The current squad contains a host of players with junior international experience, and we are immensely proud that almost half the squad are products of our thriving junior section.  We look forward to welcoming some of the next batch of impressive youngsters into the squad over the coming years.

If you would be interested in joining us, please get in touch with any of the contacts above. We’d love to have you along!
As an amateur family club we are currently almost entirely funded by player subscription fees, sponsorship and voluntary fundraising and we want to keep it that way. As such we are looking to raise further money to help meet the costs of Premier League Hockey.

If you would be interested in sponsoring the team or an individual squad member then please get in contact with Tim Warrington. For all other club sponsorship enquiries please see the sponsorship section of the website for information, or contact Janine Nicholls directly.
