Welcome to our site! We are a friendly team made up of ladies from Sheringham, Holt and the surrounding parishes. In 2011-2012 we won the Premier Division of the M+A Norfolk Womens Hockey League which promoted us to division 2NE of the East Womens League.
2009 bought many exciting changes to the club! As well as changing our name to the Panthers (we were formerly Briston Ladies Hockey Club) we have new colours (as you've probably guessed, they're pink and black) new kit supplied by Gameface and new sponsors - The Lobster public house in Sheringham. All other kit is supplied by Barrington Sports.
Please feel free to browse our website, check the calendar, and if you fancy joining us, please do not hesitate to click the contact us page, and get in touch! To check write ups, or details of fixtures, just click on the event and the details will pop up! If you would like to view our results, then check our results page! Simples!
Training for the 2012-2013 season commences in August 2012 between 7.00-8.30pm at Greshams School, Cromer Road, Holt. Weekly training sessions cost £2 per session for 16yrs +, and £1 for under 16's. Your first week is free!
We also have circuit training at Pinewoods Leisure Park in Kelling on Tuesday evenings from 7.15pm.
Annual subs are required to cover insurance for the players. A sum of £45 for 16+, and £20 for 16 and under is payable when you join the club, and every year thereafter.
All league matches are played on Saturdays - all fixtures are on the calendar. All our home matches are played at Sheringham High School. Match fees are £5 (providing a whole match is played, £2.50 for half a match!). For 14-16yr olds match fees are £3 or £1.50 for half a match. We always welcome supporters! Teas are held at the Lobster Pub, Sheringham. Parking for teas is available in town along the High Street, or at pay and display car parks on:
Station Road (by the train station)
Morris Street (from Holt Road, drive over the bridge on to Church Street by the police station, take the second left on to Augusta Street, then turn right on to Morris Street)
Chequers Car Park (on the promenade - head for the sea through the town and its located by the Crown pub)
Cliff Road (turn left at the Lobster on to Wyndham Street, and take the second left on to Cliff Road - the car park is to your left)
A street map of Sheringham can also be found here.
To keep ourselves active throughout the summer, we participate in a 7-a-side summer league at Taverham High School on alternate Tuesday evenings every year. We have won 2 summer league tournaments and finished second in 2012!
We are an actively social club, and organise many events throughout the year to boost our funds, and to let our hair down! This year, we attended Nottingham to watch England Hockey Team play, are organising ice skating and go-karting, and are looking for new fundraising ideas! We also have our annual awards dinner, and Christmas do. If you have any ideas or would like to get involved please contact us using the tab at the top of the page!
