Achievements to date
We are fortunate that the founding members of the club were asked some years ago to record their memories of the origins of the club. Two of those members have since passed away. Those written records of the early chapters of the club’s history are priceless: they set out the thoughts and deeds of those gentlemen who sowed the seeds, and set up the basic structure, of the club of which we are extremely proud and which provides us with so much pleasure.
The Old Bordenian Hockey Club has played each season since 20th October 1945.
We are currently fielding six Men’s sides, two Ladies teams, and U14, U16 and U18 junior sides. Both Men’s & Ladies sides are playing within the Kent and South Leagues. The junior sides are having a lot of success, with a number of the players playing for Kent and our own Men’s & Ladies’ teams.
Funding has been secured from the Kent Trust for Youth Sport to help one of our young volunteers, Sammzi Bahawry, gain his England Hockey Sessional Coach Qualification and ensure that our young people received the best coaching possible.
Since 2008, £142,469 has been awarded to individuals and organisations.
