Welcome to Somerville Hockey Club
Somerville Hockey Club was founded by Mr L Howard Norton in 1915 and became an Incorporated Society in 1972. Today the Club has in excess of 550 members - men, women, boys and girls, playing in many teams in many grades in the AHA competition. Our homebase is located at Auckland Grammar School in Mt Eden, on the Auckland city fringe with an international class water turf.
It's that time of year again! With the winter season coming to a close, registrations are now open for our 6 a side summer hockey competition.

Please register online before Wednesday 29th August to have your name added to the list on the door - there are no physical tickets needed.
Continuing with the clubs support of traveling international players Somerville is welcoming Great Britain couple Barry and Beckie Middleton at the end of October. The couple is seeking accommodation as paying guests in either a Granny-flat or 1 bedroom flat hopefully in the clubs catchment area or inner suburbs. Both players will be traveling to NZ after competing in the Australian State competition. If you are able to provide assistance or direction could you contact the clubs Coaching Director Simon Norton immediately.

Big shout out to Tim Little and team from Avondale Dental for their moulded mouth guards offer to SHC Members last month.
Tim has been helping to protect our players mouths for over 10 years now. His contribution to support safety in the game has seen him provide well over 500 mouth guards for our somerville players. - That's alot of impressions and behind the scenes effort to preserve our teeth.
If you'd like to support Tim and his committment to us - you can find his practice here
