WORTHING HOCKEY CLUB – NEW CLUBHOUSE LAUNCH

Over the last few months the new Worthing Hockey Clubhouse has been taking shape at The Angmering School next to the club’s home pitch forming a cornerstone in the next chapter of club history alongside the merger with Penguin Mens Hockey Club.

The club is now proud to announce that the club house is ready to welcome members and visiting teams to use for teas and refreshments post game from Saturday 19th January. Over the following weeks the final touches will be completed including signage, catering arrangements and bar licence. The brick fund is still open for donations to help fund this ambitious project.

The clubhouse will have a grand opening on Saturday 16th March at 12.30pm to coincide with a Men’s 1st XL league game – this will  be  conducted  by  local  dignitaries  and  The  Angmering  School  headmaster.  Invitations  will  include  all  members  past  and  present, sponsors, friends of the club, vice presidents and the local press – full details to follow. 

 

To mark this historic event in the club’s 123 years of history , a new logo is being unveiled which reflects a modern, fresh image whilst  retaining  the  traditional  values  of  the  club,  helping  to  widen  the  appeal  of  the  club  to  members,  friends  of  the  club,  sponsors and new members across social media, website and advertising within the local community.
Starting  in  February  2019,  to  coincide  with  the  opening  of  the  new  clubhouse  at  Angmering  School,  the  logo  will  change to this >

New club kit starting with the Mens 1st Xl will be phased in from March 2019 and the logo will be phased in on club kit during the 2019 / 2020 season.

More details on the grand opening day on 16th March will be issued shortly.
