Welcome to the 2019/2020 season of Newbridge Hockey Club.
We are looking forward to another great year in the club with this years committee featuring some new faces. This mixture of experience and enthusiasm will ensure that this year is a fantastic one in Newbridge. It is down to hard work of our volunteers that the club runs so smoothly.
As always the players, both junior and senior, are at the heart of the club. We currently have one senior ladies team in Leinster, and a junior section of over 250 children ranging from u8 – u16s. The passion that radiates from each player when they put on their Newbridge colors is infectious. It is a testament to the coaches that the future of hockey in Newbridge is very bright.
Our club welcomes with open arms new members regardless of ability. Get in touch with us if you or you kids want to get involved and be part of the fantastic Newbridge Hockey Club community.

Newbridge Hockey Club's long term vision is to bring high level hockey to Newbridge, firstly through it's own club (improving underage hockey whilst exploiting the talent in the club through involvement at Leinster, Irish and Interpro Level) and secondly while providing facilities for Irish and Interprovincial training and competitions. The spread of hockey is very much dependant on premier games for viewing and attracting young players.
