About the Club

The origins of Sanderstead Hockey Club go back to 1947, when a group of students from Croydon Art School started a mixed hockey club, playing matches at Sanderstead cricket ground. By 1958 the club had lost its links with the Art School, and had become Sanderstead's (Men's) Hockey Club:  running three teams, with Harley Sherlock skippering the First XI until 1969. 

The club has 1 mens team, competing in Surrey Leagues and is ably led by skipper, Simon Medland and a Colts section. We run a mixed training sessions for 7-14 year olds on Sunday mornings.

Our Clubhouse is a very special place overlooking the Cricket Ground and is located behind Gresham School and accessed from a driveway next to the bus stop. We run a licensed bar and hold regular Saturday social events for members, friends and family. Our season runs from September to April when we take over the Clubhouse from the Cricket Club.
