Welcome to Doha Hockey Club


Doha Hockey Club
warmly welcomes all players keen to play social hockey. The club has a broad player base, from beginners to ex-International and European first division players.  At last count we had players from 22 different countries, ranging in age from 6 to 60! As the biggest club in Qatar, Doha Hockey Club has fielded teams in the Qatar Hockey League for the past 4 years. Our primary focus is social hockey; to enjoy the game in a social environment, improve fitness and enrich the experience of working in Qatar. The club is also extremely active on the International hockey tour circuit, sending teams to play at tournaments in Dubai and Singapore in recent years. We also host tournaments here in Qatar for visiting teams from around the region. In addition to hockey, the club has a thriving social scene with numerous events on offer throughout the year, ranging from fun days out for the whole family to sophisticated black-tie occasions at 5* hotels.

So regardless of your background, age or ability, come along and join us!

Update: 2014-15 Season
Start of Training – Tuesday 28th October

Players, Members and Friends,

After the disappointment of losing Al Rayaan we have been working on alternatives. Park House School, who is our shirt sponsor this year, is still in the process of taking delivery of and then laying the outdoor astro-turf pitch which we had planned as back-up. The revised timetable for its availability is January 2015. Whilst this is disappointing for everyone we have however been able to secure indoor facilities at Deutsche Schule Doha (many thanks to Oliver).

We plan to train next week so please mark your diaries.

Details:
Where: Deutsche Schule, Doha (http://www.ds-doha.de/en/administration-2/directions/)
When: Commencing Tuesday 28 th October 5.00pm*
Commencing Saturday 1st November at 9.00am

*Please meet early this Tuesday for membership issues, kit etc.

We appreciate 5.00pm is early for some Members but our options are limited. You will also note we are meeting on Saturday, rather than Friday, which is a departure from the norm but no facilities are available to us on a Friday. We trust that the times work for as many people as possible in the circumstances. Sticks are available but we recommend you bring your own and don’t forget shin pads, gumshields, hand-protection and water.

Your Committee would like to emphasise that the facilities and the form of training will be a ‘work in progress’ so we ask for patience and understanding from all Members as we work through any issues that may come up on a nightly/weekly basis. Until we get to grips with the numbers, ages and skill levels we will likely commence with 30 minutes of fitness; 30 minutes of stick/ball familiarisation and then small quick fire games. Please bring along your Membership fee (a flat QR 500 which will include the new DHC kit). The new kit is available for distribution now.

If you intend to join us for the 2014/15 season all members are required to complete a copy of the DHC Registration Form, DHC Waiver & DHC Code of Conduct. Please find all forms attached to this email. This is particularly crucial this year as we are using third-party school facilities all of which have their own insurance and liability requirements; DHC will not be able to use the facilities without having in place the necessary protections and DHC will be enforcing this requirement.

New Kit for 2014-15

Wowzers- the new kit is through and looking good.
