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 27 July 2106

We are now getting very close to being ready to start the build (scheduled date 5th September), but the last big hurdles are:

1) Money - no change from previously, we barely have enough to do a minimum build. We still need additional support.
2) The lease of the land from the college. The final lease draft should be ready in the first days of August - it's taken a long time but we expect to sign next week, subject to a few details being resolved (title, drawings). 
3) Because we have not raised as much money as hoped we have to go back to Sport England with an amended proposal showing what we can and cannot afford to build. Going ahead with the build will be subject to their approval - without their funding the project stops dead

Other things that have progressed:
The tender for the pitch build was issued (3/3/16), responses have been assessed and a supplier chosen. Cost is higher than hoped, and although some items can be eliminated (e.g. we will now only buy two new goals, and move the newest two from Newland Park) we will have to spend more than anticipated.

The tender for the clubhouse build was issued on 23rd May and the responses have come back way above the forecasts (more than double in some cases). We have managed to remove significant amounts by doing some re-engineering of the spec with our preferred builder, but significant compromise on the design (or at least what we build of it) is inevitable. 

Our aim though is unchanged: we should have everything in place to start to build this summer - in fact it is now scheduled for the 5th September. With the compromises made to the clubhouse (details will be shared on this site and in an email in the next few days, if Sport England accept the proposal) it now looks possible both pitch and clubhouse will be handed over by the 1st January.

But we still need to gather all the donations we can, as the more we have the more complete the clubhouse fit-out will be. It doesn't have to be huge amounts - what we need is every adult and junior parent who hasn't yet contributed to put in a £100 or £200 donation (about a years membership per player) with Gift Aid (we now have as much money in loans as we can afford to service).

Not a lot to secure our future! So if you can contribute please contact John Spicer at johnhockey.spicer@btinternet.com for more details
