Peterborough Rink Hockey Club was established in 1966 by Carl White, Colin Henson and John Lunn just after the World Cup. Their first game was played by the Rebels, as they were called, at Butlins.
In our first year in the League, our Home venue was in Norwich. We trained in a hall that was used by the Palace Bingo in Wentworth Street, Peterborough. We then moved to the Central Youth Club which was situated more or less where the Magistrate's Courts are now. Eighteen months later we moved to the wirrina which was our home until the end of August 1997. That was the last hockey to be played at the venue, which has now been knocked down.
The Club then split because they thought we were not going in the right direction. The Juniors went to Bushfield Sports Centre and the Seniors to Gladstone Community Centre. This was a difficult period for the Club. When we moved to Bushfield we only had one team. We now have teams in all age groups from under 11's to seniors including a team in the countries top division the National Premier League. Down the years we have had players represent their country at Schoolboy, Junior, Ladies and senior levels.
Peterborough rink hockey club is committed to the recruitment and development of roller hockey players. that hopefully one day will represent their country at all levels.
All our coaches are DBS Checked.
