The Marton Hockey Club has a proud history of sport in the Marton community. Originally competing as ‘Marton Suburbs’ in recent years the newly named Marton Hockey Club has played at the sharp end of Hockey Manawatu’s club competition. In 2019, the club rebranded to pay homage to the original blue and gold colours of the Marton Suburbs era.
Over the last decade, the men’s team has competed in the Hockey Manawatu Division 2 competition where they have enjoyed huge success. The MHC men are always a formidable team and have won multiple championships. In 2019 the team encountered a transition year where we gained a lot of exciting new young players who have made a massive contribution to the team whilst growing their Hockey skills. 2021 is shaping up to be a big year for the essentially unchanged mens team who now have a season under their belt playing together.
In the recent few years, the club also formed a women’s team to make hockey even more accessible in the wider Marton community. The women’s team have enjoyed the opportunity to continue to grow their skills with the same culture and philosophy built over the clubs proud history. The women’s team are again looking at attracting more women into hockey and further developing their returning players.
