Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club has been playing hockey in Medway since 1954. Originally based on grass pitches at the bottom of Featherby road, we moved to the newly built, current clubhouse in 1984.
Now in our 65th season, we run 4 mens teams, 3 ladies teams, a mixed and veteran side as well as junior teams across the age ranges.
No matter your level of hockey, we're a friendly, family oriented club looking for new players.
We're a social bunch with a full social calendar planned, including a variety of family-friendly and more adult oriented evenings.
If you're interested in joining or want to know more, get in touch!
Hockey Club Membership Fees
Anchorians is proud to be one of the cheapest hockey clubs to play for in Kent. We aim to make hockey accessible for as many people as possible, making sure our fees aren't a barrier to getting involved in the sport!
By spreading direct debit payments throughout the year, we try to keep the monthly payment as low as possible. For those not available week in, week out, we also offer a flexible pay to play option.
All members, regardless of age or playing status, must pay a small fee to the Anchorians Association, for use of the clubhouse facilities.
For any questions about fees or for the club account details, please get in touch with Treasurer, Gareth Price.

Played 25, Won 14, Lost 6, Drew 5.
They also recorded a respectable tally of 70 goals, whilst only conceding 34.
