HOCKEY

Having been established in the very early days of the College, the Shiplake College Hockey Club is still going strong in its sixth decade of competition.

Alongside football, hockey is a major sporting option in the Spring Term. Hockey is played throughout the College with up to five teams competing between junior and senior level. The College boasts a number of specialist hockey coaches who are passionate about developing the sport at Shiplake and the all-weather astroturf allows hockey to be enjoyed even on the coldest and wettest days of the year, providing a great arena for skill development and small sided inter-house tournaments. Shiplake play midweek home matches at local club grounds in Reading, Sonning and Henley, which are all only a short drive away.

Girls can also choose hockey in the Spring Term and are able to represent Shiplake in regular mixed hockey fixtures. These are arranged against local co-educational establishments such as Henley College.

Shiplake College has a reputation for punching well above its weight in sport, and hockey is no different.
