About Our Club

About Our Club

Gwent Hockey Club is the biggest club in South East Wales. Once separately known as Newport HC and Cwmbran HC, these two clubs merged first in 2009 with the Newport Ladies joining later in 2011.

Here at Gwent, we pride ourselves on having a large, and successful, youth section that feeds into our senior squads. We run multiple youth teams for boys and girls, with the U8/U10 squads being mixed and U12 and up being separated into boys and girls. We have teams of mixed abilities from U8's all the way up to U18's, and these youth squads have had plenty of successes in the past few years. We welcome players from reception age and above. Our youth play mostly monthly matches, and compete in Cup/Plate tournaments at the end of the season. The youth squads have seen some great success in the Welsh Finals over the years.

Many of our youth are also involved with regional & national teams, and we have had the pleasure and honour of seeing so many past and present players making international selection and competing in major competitions.

This success is mirrored within our senior squads, with plenty of our senior players having also seen international selection. We have 4 men’s and 4 women’s squads, all of mixed ability and experience. Both men’s and women’s senior sections have also seen cup success in recent years. Our Ladies First team have also represented Wales in the European Club Championship II 3 times; in the Czech Republic, Turkey and Croatia.

As mentioned, many of our senior players have seen international selection, and continue to represent Wales through Masters selection. Many of our players are chosen, and have often gone abroad to represent Wales in numerous competitions.

Gwent Hockey club is a friendly, welcoming, and supportive club and we are always looking to welcome more players of all ages and abilities. We have family memberships available for those wishing to make it a family affair! We love to socialise with everyone off the pitch as well as on it, and organise multiple socials throughout the year including numerous nights out, Christmas parties, and a big end of season awards night!

We are ONE CLUB and one big HOCKEY FAMILY!
