About Us

Welcome to Hampstead and Westminster Hockey Club. The club dates back to the 1870s and is now one of the largest clubs in the country. We play our home games on two artificial pitches at Paddington Recreation Ground in Maida Vale, Central London. The main pitch is a water-based FIH global standard pitch which was recently replaced in 2009. Both pitches are just a short walk from Maida Vale underground station.

Our clubhouse is Paddington Sports Club (PSC) which is situated on the south side of Paddington Recreation Ground. PSC is a comfortable place to relax after matches with a delicious Thai kitchen and fully stocked bar. They show Sky Sports on two TVs throughout the day and have outdoor seating on the terrace all year round. The entrance is hidden from the main road but you will find it next to Bon Appetit Delicatessen on Castellain Road, Maida Vale, London, W9 1HQ.

HWHC can accommodate and coach players of all abilities and age groups. The Club has 12 men's teams, 7 ladies teams and a very successful junior section. Whatever level you are looking to play at, we will have a team for you. We pride ourselves on not only providing hockey for all abilities, but in providing a friendly and sociable atmosphere.
