About Evesham & Badsey

Your friendly, local hockey club

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!”
