Note to teams visiting the New Field
Please accept our apologies, works on the new pavilion are nearly complete (anticipated during January), although the new club room is not quite ready, there is now changing available adjacent to the pitch. Parking availability is as illustrated here. The best thing is to travel in as few cars as possible and then park tightly on the gravel path alongside the pitch and between the floodlight pylons, or go to the end of the astro' where a new area has been cleared for parking. Please don't go further onto the grass by the rugby pitches and don't try to park in the Fullerians RFC car park as they will try to charge you!
Developing Hockey in Watford
With its men's 1st XI newly promoted to the National League and ladies 1st XI playing in the Premier division of the East; seven mens and five ladies teams in all, plus several junior sides and a National League Men's Indoor Side, West Herts is a successful and forward thinking club and aims to provide hockey for all standards of player, man and woman, boy & girl-regardless of age.
2013/14 was a season of unprecedented success; in addition to the success of the men's 1s, the Club's mixed team won the EH Trophy and in the "rank and file" the men's 6th XI finished second in Div. 8SW, in the ladies section the 4th XI was promoted for the third successive season.
The men's indoor team further cemented their placing in NHL Div. 2 and will again compete there this winter.
By the middle of next season the club will also be using a brand new clubhouse, being built by Watford Boys Grammar school and offering all the facilities necessary for a comfortable and welcoming environment for players, officials, supporters and spectators alike.
