About The Club
Leicester Hockey Club was established in 1885 (not 1889 as some sources state). In more recent history, the Club was for a long time based at Illston-on-the-Hill, sharing the clubhouse and grass pitches with the cricket team and Illston Sports Association. From the early1990s the teams (sometimes three, four or five, depending on the season) entered a nomaic period of playing at several artificial pitches (Guthlaxton College, Uppingham College and others) before settling in the late "noughties" at its new home ground at Leicester Grammar School.
The Club plays all home matches at Leicester Grammar School and runs four senior men’s teams playing in the Midlands Region Leagues, a Badgers team and a Masters (Veterans) team. In addition, LHC provision includes many different squads each week (running our own junior and senior leagues on Thursday evenings). LHC has a well established hockey development programme for boys and girls from primary school age all the way up to senior hockey. Jump to Training Schedule.
