We still have some membership fees outstanding. We would appreciate all members helping by paying their fees. As a community sporting club, we have very limited financial resources, and we need to pay Hockey Geelong fees for games, umpires and training. The link to the store for payment of fees is below:

Planning for the future

The Torquay Hockey Club continue to work with the Surf Coast Shire in relation to planning for a synthetic hockey facility in Torquay. The land is now allocated at Banyul-Warri Fields in the Community Civic Precinct Master Plan. We hope to have more news soon.
