About the club
Blueharts Hockey Club was founded by old boys of Hitchin Grammar School in 1946. It led a nomadic existance until it was welcomed at Hitchin Cricket Club at Lucas Lane in 1952. The quality and commitment of the early players soon established Blueharts as one of the senior clubs in the region. The men have had two spells in the National League. The men's section has grown to 6 sides, all competing in the East League.
The ladies section was founded in 1986 and has also had a spell in the National League. They have grown to 4 sides; the 1st team play in the East League and the others in the Five Counties League.
The club is proud of its highly successful Mini hockey section for 6 to 12 year olds, where over 150 childen are coached on winter Sundays.
In partnerhip with Hitchin Cricket Club, a contract has been awarded to Morgan Sindall to build a new clubhouse and artificial pitch on the Lucas Lane sports ground which will be ready by the end of 2018. Until then all coaching and games will remain at Hitchin Boys' School artificial pitch with Post-match socialising at The Victoria on the corner of Fishponds Road and Ickleford Road.
