The Dutch Hockey Club (DHC), founded in 1949 is the oldest, still active, hockey club in Hong Kong. In the earlier years all the players had to be of Dutch Nationality however, times have moved on and the club has transformed to be a truly international one with players not just from the Netherlands but also, Hong Kong, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Argentina and Germany to name a few.
Besides playing at a competitive level, the social activities outside of pitch time are also a very important part to DHC. Beers after the game to celebrate the win, regular Friday night drinks and other activities such as Junk-boat parties, Pub-Quizzes and dinners are organized all year round so you really get to know all the teams and players from both the men’s and ladies sections.
Currently the club has two Men’s teams, playing in First and Fourth division and two Ladies teams, playing in First and Second division. Practice for all teams is on Tuesday nights in the inner ring of the Happy Valley Racecourse and training is provided by our former Pakistan International player and Premier League Trainer, Ali Zeeshan.
The main league season runs from September – April but we also play in the annual Easter Mixed Hockey 6’s and the Mixed Summer League from June – August each year.
Players of all levels from beginners to ex-internationals have player for DHC at one time or another and whether you’ve never picked up a stick before or looking to reignite your game and make some friends along the way, all are welcome!
The DHC Committee unites the club with a series of social events, co-ordination of the season. Hear more about what the Dutch Hockey Club in Hong Kong is up to. Remember all welcome!
