Hailsham is situated 9 miles North of Eastbourne, near the Sussex Coast. The hockey club was founded in 1902, and is one of the oldest club's in the county of Sussex. Local historian records include photographs of mixed hockey being played on the infamous Hailsham Recreation ground back as early as 1925.
In October 2001 the new Hailsham Community College all weather pitch became available, and Hailsham now play all home games at the college.
Hailsham is a small club in East Sussex fielding on Saturdays 2 men's, 2 ladies, 1 boys development side and on a Sunday 1 mixed side. We draw players from Hailsham, Eastbourne, Polegate, Willingdon, Heathfield, Uckfield and the surrounding areas. Hailsham plays its hockey in the Sussex leagues.
We have an occasional men's veterans team, and an active junior section whose members play in the The Millers - (in the Sussex Development League), and the Ladies 2nd XI in the Ladies League, and also in mini hockey festivals and tournaments.
Hailsham positions itself as a community club. We aim to provide hockey for the town of Hailsham, in the town of Hailsham. As far as possible within the boundaries of the sport we aim not to discriminate and welcome new players to the club of any playing age, or social members.
We currently have several qualified coaches and qualified umpires, but are always looking for new members to participate in coaching and umpiring activities.
