The Hollandse Club has its very own group of hockey players that gather for regular trainings and take part in various levels of competition. If you are interested in being part of the Club’s hockey team simply approach the Hockey Committee. Training takes place weekly at external venues.
The Hollandse Club Hockey Team has been going on strong for several years and is formed by both Dutch and international players residing in Singapore. Trainings are high fun, social and the team has done exceedingly well in local competitions in recent years.
The Hollandse Club also has a very active and well organized adult hockey section. At present, there are three men and one ladies team(s). The teams are formed by both Dutch and international players residing in Singapore and the Ladies and the Men’s A-team both play at the highest level in their respective Singaporean competitions.
The teams train each Wednesday evening from 8-9 (Ladies) and 9-10 (Men) at an external venue, CCAB located on Evans Road (NUS Law School) which is near Botanic Gardens. They then socialize further with drinks at the HC Serambi Bar.
The Singapore Hockey Federation (SHF) currently organizes competitions for two ladies and five men leagues. For HC hockey, the Ladies team plays in National Women’s League 1, the Men’s A-team plays in National Hockey League 1, the Men’s B-team plays in National Hockey League 3 and the Men’s C-team plays in National Hockey League 4. These competitions usually take six months (except in July), but for the remainder of the year the men’s teams can choose to participate in the Hockey Liga, a 9-a-side hockey league.
However, the Hollandse Club hockey section and the teams are not only about hockey. The hockey-section organizes at least three social events for all their members (also including their partners) and the teams have their own social events, ranging from motor biking in Malaysia to BBQ at the pool.
The Hollandse Club hockey section also organizes the yearly “Wooden Shoe Hockey Tournament”, a unique, one-day sport event that has established a prominent position in Singapore’s sports calendar. This tournament aims to encourage the integration amongst the various cultural communities in Singapore. From some 100 participants in its early days, it has grown successfully to more than 500 participants last year with female-, male- and youth teams participating.
Last, but certainly not least, ZOAT, the famous “South-East Asia Tournament”.
This yearly tournament rotates between five South-East Asian cities: Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur. “Dutch” teams from countries all over this region participate in this unique event that starts Friday with a round of golf while the hockey is played on Saturday and Sunday. And that is of course also a lot of partying involved.
Overall: if you live in Singapore and your wish to play hockey and enjoy good company, do join the Hollandse Club Hockey community.
