Hockey

Hockey is the major sport for the girls in the Autumn Term and for the boys in the Spring Term. With a fresh hockey programme put into place in 2014/15, we have grown from strength to strength in a single year. Both the boys and girls enter county, district and national tournaments.

Here at Lingfield we have a full-size sand dressed AstroTurf in the heart of the school grounds with an overlooking pavilion and balcony. Floodlights have recently been installed, which has extented the training sessions.

At Lingfield we encourage everyone to participate in hockey throughout the Years, arranging fixtures for all capabilities. We currently field the following teams:

Boys

Girls

1st XI, 2nd XI

1st XI, 2nd XI

U15 A, B

U15 A

U14 A, B

U14 A

U13 A, B, C XI

U13 A, B, C XI

U12 A, B, C, D, E

U12 A, B, C, D

The current success of hockey at Lingfield includes a record number of county players and others making the Tonbridge Tigers JRPC team.

This season will see a record number of teams being fielded and an increasingly more handsome fixture card, including some very successful nationwide hockey schools.
We have built great links with local clubs and create a feeding programme into these clubs to enable the pupils to get the maximum out of hockey around the area. We have a current link with one of the country’s most successful clubs, East Grinstead, and also look to feed players into Oxted Hockey Club.

The Head of Hockey is Premier League and European Hockey League player Wes Jackson, who plays for East Grinstead Hockey Club. We also have William Marshall who plays for Surbiton and Scotland. Both of these gentlemen have a vast array of grass roots and elite coaching experience. Alongside these, we have a number of coaches assisting them to ensure all age groups and levels get expert coaching and receive feedback in order to continually improve.

Every two years, the hockey teams have the opportunity to travel abroad for a Tour, with the most recent one being to Holland.
