Sports:

The Old Silhillians (or "Sils") is a hockey club based in Solihull, consisting of 5 Men's teams, 2 Ladies' teams and a flourishing juniors section. We were the first Hockey Club in the country to be awarded the Sport England Clubmark accreditation (known as Club's First within the hockey world), and are one of the leading clubs in the Warwickshire area to support the Single System.
 
We currently benefit from using the facilities at our very own astroturf, where currently all our training and home matches take place, which is immediately outside the Silhillians Clubhouse itself and hence is the envy of many local clubs. The Silhillians, situated on the road between Solihull and Knowle, has 2 bars, complete changing and showering facilities, catering on-site, and also the associated facilities for the other sportsclubs (Rugby, Squash, Rifle Shooting, Football, and Croquet). The "Silz" festival, which is hosted at the Silhillians grounds over the August Bank Holiday weekend every year, is the envy of the surrounding area, with over 300 hockey revellers descending upon the site every year, and attendees regularly praising it as the best festival in the country.
 
As a club, we also support hockey within the local community, with every effort made to provide coaches to local schools and host JDC sessions, and we are also the Home of Warwickshire JAC (County) activity, with several of the County managers being members of the club, and all of the U13, U14, and U15 Boys coaching being delivered at the Sils.
 
We are always keen to welcome new members.
 
We cater for players of all abilities, providing excellent coaching, playing and social facilities for the whole club.
 
Why not join us and enjoy great hockey, a growing social scene off the pitch and one of the best festivals in the country.
 
We'd love to hear from you!
