Who are we ??
Somehow, it seems that Remnants H. C. is the only openly gay women’s hockey club in the South East! Although our membership is predominantly gay we don't really care who you fancy. We also encompass all abilities, so if you’re interested in joining but haven’t picked up a stick for years (or if you never have), it’s not a problem.
We still looking for enthusiastic players to join us !!
The club is registered to the Kent league and we play at Eltham College, Mottingham. Our members come from all over south-east London and north Kent; so if you want to come along but do not have independent transport, don't worry, someone will be able to give you a lift to training and matches.
Socially, we’re a fairly mixed bunch and we try to hold a good few social events throughout the year to raise money, drink and have a chin-wag.
What do we do ??
The club holds regular social events throughout the year - at Christmas and the end of the playing season but others are held in the summer and pre-season, often to raise club funds and to attract new members. We also regularly attends tournaments in the summer; some are one-day events and on the end-of-May bank holiday, we usually go Portsmouth for the Islanders Tournament.
Regular events include:
- Pre-season party.
- Christmas Bash - food, drink and usually a lot of karaoke.
- End of season do - more of the same.
Your welcome to join us !!
If you enjoy the company of lovely women, running around on chilly Saturdays, hot showers, mugs of steaming tea or lashings of beer then we would like to meet you. Alternatively, if you already have umpiring qualifications, then we’d like to buy you a drink or two. Either way, please do get in touch. You will be most welcome.
We train at Eltham College, Mottingham on their brand new astro pitch, on Thursday evenings, starting at 8.30 pm
