1. Introduction to Southampton Hockey Club

About SHC
We are an engaging, family orientated and sociable hockey club, based in the heart of Southampton.

Here at SHC we offer 6 Men's teams,5 Ladies teams and a thriving Juniors section for a range of abilities and age groups.

The Junior section is under the management of Sue Merry, who has had an incredible hockey career, having playing for England and Wales for many years.

Last year we welcomed Jonathan Price to the coaching team of the Men's 1XI. Jonathan Price is a National League player and experienced coach. This year he is supporting the club even more by taking on the coaching of the Men's club training as well.

In previous years, the Ladies 1XI team enjoyed a couple of seasons in the National League. Under the direction of our previous Head Coach, the late Roger Merry, SHC has a well-established youth section for boys and girls of all ages. In honour of Roger Merry, we hold an annual tournament (The Roger Merry Minis Tournament) at the Southampton Sports Centre which sees clubs from all over the county coming together.
