Welcome to Somerville Hockey Club
Somerville Hockey Club was founded by Mr Lesley Howard Norton in 1915 and became an Incorporated Society in 1972. Today the Club has in excess of 600 members - 45 teams of men, women, boys and girls, playing across all grades in the AHA competition. Our homebase is located at Auckland Grammar School turf in Mt Eden, on the Auckland city fringe with an international class water turf. Our premier mens and womens teams feature 12 current and past Blacksticks.
The executive committee welcomes current and prospective members to Somerville HC for the 2021 season. With safe practices and common sense our covid free community will hopefully remain with us so that we may complete the 2021 winter sports season without restrictions.
The CLUB CALENDAR has been updated. Be aware this may alter and additions may be made as we get nearer the season start. All TRIALS are listed however registration and cut-off dates will be added over the coming weeks.
