Welcome To Greenwich Field Hockey Club!

If you’re looking to play field hockey in New York, you’ve definitely come to the right place. Based in New York City, we’re one or the largest and most successful clubs in the United States. With more than one hundred active members, both ladies and men, we cover all age groups and skills levels. Our players come from all over the world, from America to England, South Africa, India, Australia, Zimbabwe, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Argentina and Uruguay. Founded in the 1950’s, the club has been organizing pickup hockey and entering teams in the North East Field Hockey League (NEFHA) for decades, with a long history of success.

Pickup Hockey

This is the heart of our club and we’re proud to say we’re the only club in New York that runs it’s very own pickup. It’s the best way to get actively involved with the club, playing regular hockey and meeting other members. Come rain, come shine, we run pickup almost all year round. Most of the sessions take place on weeknight evenings at JJ Walker Park in the West Village. In the winter we play indoor hockey on the Upper West Side. You can find out more info on these sessions by clickinghere. Whether you’re an established player, looking to pickup a stick for the first time in a few years or new to the sport, everyone is welcome.

League Hockey

We have two men’s and two women’s teams playing in the NEFHA league and we’re always on the lookout for new players. The first half of the season runs from September through the end of November and following a winter break, the league commences again in March and concludes in June with the playoffs. We have players ranging from Division I, II and III college graduates, former internationals, expats who played at university and club level, and also those who are relatively new to the sport or picking up a stick for the first time in a few years.

Social and Tournaments

Greenwich is as active off the field as it is on. As well as regular brunches and bar visits after pickup and league games, we run socials year round, including Halloween and Holiday parties, club BBQs, curry nights and pub-crawls. We also attend a number of tournaments each year, including a beach hockey tournament in New Jersey and an indoor tournament in Baltimore. In years gone by we’ve traveled as far afield as Barbados, Miami and Chicago.
We’re always on the lookout for new members so if you’d like to join the club, we’d be delighted to hear from you. Simply click on the contact tab.

Best wishes,

James Michael
President, Greenwich Field Hockey Club

  1. Magnificent beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your website, how can i subscribe for a blog web site? The account aided me a acceptable deal. I had been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright clear idea

  2. I loved as much as you will receive carried out right here. The sketch is tasteful, your authored material stylish. nonetheless, you command get got an shakiness over that you wish be delivering the following. unwell unquestionably come more formerly again as exactly the same nearly a lot often inside case you shield this hike.

  3. Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

  4. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  5. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  6. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  7. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  10. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  12. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
