Aylesbury Men's and Ladies Hockey Clubs were formed in the late 1940s. There had been a close relationship between the both clubs, and in 2001 the two senior Clubs formally amalgamated under a single Constitution.
Junior hockey has been developed by the clubs over the last thirty years until, at the present-day, the Club provides coaching, training and competitive hockey for both boys and girls at all age groups between 6 and 18. In 2008, the Club Constitution was amended and approved to fully embrace the Junior Section.
We have a proud crop of Aylesbury Juniors to make their way into the current England set up including Oli Hassall (U16s), Alice Rolfe (U18s), Lauren Thomas (U21s), Bob Gregory, Pete Wright (both O60s) and both Jo Hunter & Zoe Shipperly in the senior elite full squad.
Our camps will include the following hockey superstars :
England International & Surbiton
Jo played for Aylesbury as a junior making her 1st team debut as a teenager before moving to Buckingham, then Beeston and finally Surbiton. Whilst at SHC Jo has won the Premier League title and established herself in the England Elite side recently winning a bronze medal in the EuroHockey Championships.
Jo's relationship with Aylesbury is a family one with sister Gemma a regular ladies 1st XI player and brother Chris a regular in the men's 1st XI.
