Evesham & Badsey
Your friendly local hockey club with training, matches and social events for all ages and abilities
Sunday 3rd January 2021
Back into Lockdown we go. All team sports have been suspended by the Government so we are cancelling all training and matches with immediate effect.
When we’ll be able to restart and what this means for the ability to complete Season 20/21 remains to be seen but we’ll let you know as soon as the situation changes.

About Evesham & Badsey
We started playing hockey in Evesham in 1900. We’re proud of history and 110 years later we’re still going strong developing the club and our players.
We currently run three Senior sides – two Men’s sides and a Ladies’ side, who both play on Saturdays and train on Tuesday evenings through the season from September to March. In the off-season through the summer we run fun, social hockey sessions and the occasional mixed match.
We also have a thriving Junior section for starting from the Cubs (age 5+) to Juniors (aged 7 to 12) and onto the Badgers (from 11 to 16) as their skills develop.
All of our Junior sides allow our young players to develop their hockey skills in a friendly, supportive environment against other similarly skilled players. When they’re ready they move up through the Juniors and onto the Senior teams.
Coach Andy Osbourne, imaginatively known as ‘Oz’, who’s rarely without a smile. Or a coffee.
"I love playing hockey at Evesham and Badsey"
Dylan, 13, Badgers
“I used to play rugby at school but I kept getting injured and I had to give up. I was looking for another sport but didn’t want to play football.
I thought I’d come and see what hockey was like and now I love it. It’s great fun, the coaches are amazing, and I like playing in a mixed team with boys and girls. Oh and I’ve scored three goals this season!”
