Congratulations everyone, we've reached alert level one. You no longer need to check-in when you enter the turf, though WHA has put up QR codes for the Ministry of Health contact tracing app so you can continue to keep a record of where you've been.

Stay safe, have fun, and wash your hands!


Kia Ora Teams! We are so happy to be starting hockey again. As of Monday next week (1 June) we will be back to our normal training times and games will also start to take place. Draws should be out soon.

Watch this video from Waikato Hockey about how you must now enter the turf.


With the evolving COVID-19 situation, we regret to inform our players and supporters that the 2020 season has been postponed, effective immediately until at least 2 May 2020.

All those who are directly impacted will receive an email with more information.

For any questions, please contact Anita Burton or Wade Guthrie.


Bring your hockey mates and make an afternoon at the WHA turfs on the 28th March. Watch the prem teams, then snack on some free food after the games and have your say at our Annual General Meeting.

Congratulations to both our mens and womens premier teams, who won their respective competitions!

The premier women played Hamilton Old Girls for the HLHC Brewis Cup, and after an exciting but scoreless game of hockey went to a penalty shootout. Only one goal was scored (by Bayleigh Stirling) in the shootout due to great performances by both goalies, which was enough to bring us home the championship.

The Storage King premier men played Hamilton Old Boys for the Montieth & Parker Cup and won 2-1 (with goals by Matt Rees-Gibbs and Kyle Ostenfeld). It was a close game, but scoring early and keeping the pressure on got the guys through.


Thanks to all that attended the AGM and helped to elect the new committee for 2019. An extra big thanks to those that were part of the committee last year and those who have put their hand up to be involved this year. The new committee for 2019 is:

President: Jamie Millar
Secretary: Tania Miller
Treasurer: Fabienne Pislor
Mens Club Captain: Wade Guthrie
Womens Club Captain: Anita Burton
General Committee: Cherie Boult, Samantha Bloor, Katie Drummond, Brendon Jones, Savannah Jones, Scott Richardson, Shelley Rogers, Renee Shicker.


It is that time of year where you have the opportunity to have your say in how we run our club. For this club to run smoothly we need your help! We are always looking for new committee members, either general or executive.
