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.
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.
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.
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.
