Who remembers the clubrooms under the grandstand at the showgrounds?

After being an independent body for more than 60 years, the Devonians amalgamated with the East Devonport Men in 1981 to become the Devonport Hockey Club. Club colours of orange and blue were taken from the Netherlands national hockey colours as they were a very successful hockey nation.

To begin our 40th Year Anniversary, Devonport Hockey Club invites you to our ‘Start Up Celebration Night’. You’ll be able to view the history and memories of our club and reminisce with friends.

Can you remember Saturdays spent at Meercroft with games happening on all grass grounds? Toasted sandwiches at the clubrooms under the grandstand at the showgrounds and at the rowing club in East Devonport? Playing on the sand turf and losing skin? Watching teams perform skits at our annual vote count night?

It’s time to take a trip down memory lane. And have a giggle at all our bad hairstyles from the ’80s.

When: Saturday 17th April 6:30pm
Where: Meercroft Park Hockey Centre
What: Smart causal dress, $5 per head, nibbles provided
