We would like to thank our current sponsors for their continued support to the club.

While you’re here visit our Bishop’s Stortford Hockey Club Business Directory for businesses who support our club.

For members of the club please see more information here on discounts and promotions.


Why we seek sponsorship

Hockey is still an amateur sport and, as such, playing members contribute to the cost of playing each week. We seek sponsorship to assist with raising funds to help with the maintenance and provision of club facilities, equipment and resources required by our club to increase our level of competitiveness and provide benefits to all club members.


Could you be our sponsor?

We welcome local sponsors in particular as well as national and international sponsors especially those with an interest in hockey. Sponsorship can range from pitchside boards (on either of our pitches), to individual team or player deals.

Members of the club range from 5 – 70 years old, but we are seeing massive growth in our junior section and particularly girls. The club is situated in Bishop’s Stortford right next to Stansted Airport and is a rapidly growing commuter town to London.

Our key opportunities are around our community outreach work where we currently provide coaching to 12 local primary schools and have links with a number of local secondary schools.
