London Wayfarers Hockey Club was founded in August 1989 in Battersea, South West London.

We have gone from strength to strength since our beginnings and are now the largest hockey club in London with over 1,100 members.

We currently have more than 400 senior members in 19 senior sides (nine men’s, nine ladies and a mixed team) and our Back to Hockey programme. One of the men’s sides is a veterans team, the Centurions playing in the London Vets League. We also offer mixed hockey and summer hockey programmes.

In January 2010 we introduced our Junior section and membership  in the 2018-19 season will surpass the 800 mark with many girls and boys joining us. We regularly field seventeen 11-a-side teams across five age groups with many more playing at festivals. The intention is for juniors to transfer to our senior teams and continue to represent London Wayfarers Hockey Club at a higher level. In the 2017-18 season we also started a girls academy team, the Trailblazers, competing at senior level.

The standard of hockey we play varies widely throughout the club. Our highest teams being performance based at a competitive level to more social orientated hockey further down the club.

Men

The Men’s 1s play in South League Premier Division 1 and are looking to achieve National League status in 2018-19. Our other men’s teams compete in the Higgins London Hockey League.

Ladies

The Ladies 1s have been promoted to play the South Clubs’ Women’s Hockey League Division 1 in 2018. Our other ladies teams compete in the Surrey Ladies Hockey League.

Juniors

Our Junior section is split into age groups and enter competitions appropriate to their age and experience. Our juniors are in action every Sunday across South West London. We also offer midweek junior performance training sessions in Battersea. Our very popular GK Academy runs several sessions per week catering for 40+ goalies with a professional coaching set up.

Year-on-year our teams prove to be very competitive, gaining promotions across the board.

Club House

We may be a nomadic club, however our spiritual home is at Battersea Park. On Saturdays, you will find many London Wayfarers socialising in what we consider to be our clubhouse, The Draft House Westbridge on Battersea Bridge Road. For more information on our social activities throughout the season, please check out our events calendar.
