20 Mar 2018 : Women’s World Cup 2018. We have TICKETS!

Women’s World Cup 2018 at Lea Valley. The Club has purchased 10 tickets for the “cross over” games 3 & 4 – these are post-group games – on Tuesday 31st July starting at 6pm. These tickets are for both games. England may be playing in them, if they come 2nd in their Group. We have 7 adult and 3 kids tickets, which will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Adults are £21, kids £5. Please contact Joolz Smith if you want some. In case you want to book others, we are in Block R, Row AA, seats 49-55.

08 Mar 2018 : Club Awards 2018

The end of the season is fast approaching, and with it will come our Annual AGM. This is the event when Club Officers and Captains make their reports of the season, and also when the Club awards are presented. This usually means that the various trophies are given out on the occasion, then hastily snatched back for engraving purposes, and afterwards it becomes difficult to re-unite the award with its recipient as it's now summer.

The Committee will know prior to the AGM who has been allotted the trophies, and it's very easy to get them engraved before this meeting, but only if they are all returned in good time so it can then be done.

If those who hold the trophies from last season could please return them either this weekend or the next, we'd be very grateful and so would its new owner! If you can't get to the Clubhouse yourself, perhaps you could arrange for someone else to do this, or leave it after training with anyone who will be at the Club in the next couple of weeks.

Many thanks for your co-operation with this!





27 Dec 2017 : Unwanted presents required for Club raffles!!

Dear All,

Did you get that dreaded present that you had to accept but will never in a million years wear/use/watch/play/read? Don't bin it or pass it on to someone else -- donate it to the Club, and it will be used as a raffle prize! This not only saves the Club spending much-needed money on prizes, but it may be just what another person wants to win!

Please contact Sue Butcher on 07905 453830 if you have something to donate, and your gift can be collected if required. 

Thanks in advance for your assistance! 

Kind regards,

Romford Hockey Club

So if you didn't apply before, or just want some more tickets, use the link below to apply. You can enter the ballot from now until 6th September.

08 Feb 2017 : Easyfundraising raises FREE donations to the Club when you buy almost anything. See how it works:

Easyfundraising raises FREE donations to the Club when you buy almost anything. See how it works:

First register yourself using the link below. Then, when you spend money at any of hundreds of companies, the club will receive donations from those companies. Some small, some tiny, but they all add up.

Once you've registered, whenever you shop online, first go to the website and find the seller you want. Easyfundraising will then take you to that site and record anything you spend there. You do not have to do anything else.

An easier alternative is to download their Donation Reminder app to your browser(s). Then if you go directly to a website where donations are available, this app will tell you and let you activate the donation via a pop-up button. Perfect for those, like me, who keep forgetting to go to Easyfundraising first... There's a mobile app too.

Hundreds of vendors are signed up to this including all kinds of shops, ebay, travel companies, insurers, telecoms, utilities, pizzas, banks, cinemas, events... the list is huge. See for more.
