Sports:

Established in 1874, Surbiton Hockey Club is the second oldest hockey club in the world. There are ten mens teams, six ladies teams as the 2008/09 sees the introduction of the Ladies 6s and boasts a colts section with over 300 members.
 
Surbiton Hockey Club is totally unique with its friendly atmosphere and definite individuality. Where else would you find a water based pitch where it's almost impossible to escape from the sprinklers? Even the home dug-out isn't safe and, has anyone ever noticed the design fault that we play in white? So maybe it's an excuse to add another element of excitement to an early morning ladies game? You'll also find a backwards clock to confuse you before training let alone after a few pints of snakebite, teams dressed in tweed jackets after matches and more tour related nicknames than, well, in most places. Many people still stare blankly when a person is referred to by their name only to discover they've been playing with them for a few years without realising, just under a different name.
