History
Keynsham Hockey Club is a new hockey club, taking over from Fry's Hockey Club was has been established for over 35 years in Keynsham.

Fry's Hockey Club was based at Fry Club on the Somervale site for Fry's, then Cadbury's before it closed in 2012.  Hockey was played at this site from the 1920s when the Fry's chocolate factory reputedly had more than 15 ladies teams.

By the 1970's the club had shrunk to only two ladies' teams whose games were played only as friendlies on a Saturday using a grass pitch. Since then we have grown to our present structure of three ladies' teams, two men's team and a mixed team.

The men's section was formed in 2005 with a single XI (and mixed XI) being run.  In September2010, we started a new men's 2nd XI

Keynsham Hockey Club, as Fry's did beforehand, maintains a close working relationship with Wellsway School, where we play our home games, and is an active member of the Keynsham and Saltford Sports Network (KSSN). Our base is Keynsham Cricket Club.  We are committed to encouraging young people to take up hockey as a great way of being active, meeting new people and developing as team members. We welcome players of all ages and abilities through our range of teams.

We look forward to meeting new and established players this season and welcome the return of past players. We pride ourselves in being a friendly and welcoming club whose aim is to bring to the community a club offering hockey to all ages and abilities at very affordable costs.
