Ballymena Hockey Club was formed in 1995 through the amalgamation of one of Ulster’s oldest Ladies Hockey Clubs, Mid Antrim Ladies (Est. 1920) and Seven Towers Ladies who were formed in the early 1980’s.
The Club was named Ballymena Hockey Club to reflect the vision of the initial founding members to set up a Men’s and Ladies Hockey Club in Ballymena, a vision that became reality in 2006 when Ballymena Men’s Hockey Club became part of the club.
Today the Club has over 400 members across our Mini, Junior, Senior and Veteran sections. The Club is represented in youth leagues, Senior Men and Senior Ladies leagues and Veteran Leagues, competing with teams across Ireland under the auspices of Ulster Hockey.
The Club would welcome the support of local businesses and can provide a variety of direct benefits including:
- Logo presence on the Club website, newsletters and promotional material;
- Local media coverage;
- Presence on all social networking sites associated with the club; and
- Exposure throughout Ireland’s hockey network .
