Amersham and Chalfont Hockey Club

Amersham and Chalfont Hockey Club

Welcome to the Amersham & Chalfont Hockey Club home page.  Established in the summer of 2001 through the merger of Amersham and Chalfont St. Peter hockey clubs, we are one of the largest adult hockey clubs in South Bucks with a total of 9 adult teams. Plus we have over 450 junior players, making us the 8th biggest junior section in England! We currently have 5 men's teams and 4 women's teams, as well as dozens of Junior teams, so whatever your ability level or age, you're guaranteed some action!

Looking For A Hockey Club?

A & C HC is a very friendly, social hockey club and welcomes new members of all levels of playing ability or if you've never played before and want to try.  We largely play at Royal Masonic School in Rickmansworth at the moment (but see our plans for a new facility in Amersham elsewhere on this page) but use the old astro at Newland Park, Chalfont St Giles as an overflow pitch.
We run the following during the main season September - March:
  • Five Mens teams (including a Vintage over 50 XI)
  • Four Ladies teams
  • Junior coaching every Sunday and most mid week evenings with 20+ teams
  • Thriving social scene

We also have a Summer Programme, with adult summer league and junior sessions, and junior camps in the school holidays.

Astro / Club House / Fund Raising

Updated 14th August 2106

We are now getting very close to starting the pitch build on the scheduled date of 5th September (with clubhouse build starting the 19th as the preliminary earth-moving is being done by the pitch contractor).

The lease has been agreed and signature has been done/ is being done by both parties. A couple of title details are still being worked, but exchange is imminent

The massive support we had as a club to our 'last push' has significantly reduced the money problem, but in order to do what Sport England require as a build a bit more is required. This is being negotiated with the various funding bodies at the moment and conclusions are expected this week in order to allow the club to commit to the build (letters of intent followed by the full contracts). 

There are a few other legal bits and pieces to work though, but fingers crossed everything will be in place by next Thursday and the builders can be instructed.

We've agreed compromises to the build with Sport England to create a working facility within our available funding. Compared with the planning permission, the main differences will be:
1) No netball/ warm-up courts (these would cost another Ā£125,000)
2) No balcony (still great clubhouse viewing from the full-length windows and the terrace)
3) A limited fit-out of the clubroom (we will spend more on this as we go along and can afford it)
4) The umpires changing rooms not fitted out (again, to be done when we can afford it).

So everyone is aware of the core numbers, the club needs to generate a surplus of (at a minimum) Ā£45,000 per year for the next 11 years to pay off the members loans and to build up the sinking fund for re-carpetting. This is very achievable, given our current spend at RMS and our annual surplus (Sport England would not be supporting us if they thought otherwise). But it means the club will have to manage everything money related very closely to build up the extra funds needed for 3) & 4) above.
