Eastcote Hockey Club based in Kings College Road, Ruislip have exciting plans to build a second multi – use Artificial Grass pitch on Kings College Playing Fields.
The club which has been based in its current home since 1965 are keen to increase sporting facilities for the local community as their existing Artificial Grass Pitch is used to capacity at peak times in the evening and weekends by Eastcote Hockey Club, local schools for youth and adult hockey and football and various local youth and adult football clubs.
The club which currently runs 14 Men’s and ladies adult teams provides opportunities for young people to become involved in sport. The second pitch will allow EHBC to fully cater for the 170 youths aged from 5 to 16 who attend the club’s Colts Sunday training sessions and meet the demand from individuals and organisations in the local community as it will be available to hire.
EHBC have positioned the new pitch in consultation and full agreement with the local youth football club Ruislip Rangers who will be able to continue to play all of their games at their Kings College Playing Field base.
The local community will also benefit as the Hockey Club will take over responsibility for the maintenance of the running track from Hillingdon Council, which will remain unfenced and open to all free for public use.
The club is shortly due to submit a new planning application to Hillingdon Council.
