Athena HC

AthenA is a young hockey club, established in 2004. The club has since grown to include more than 1,500 members, who participate in approximately 70 youth teams and 27 senior teams.

Located in the Watergraafsmeer, AthenA is home to four artificial pitches and the AthenA KantinA. Alongside its members, each week AthenA attracts many fans who enjoy hockey and all that comes with the sport. It is also working hard to realise a new clubhouse to accommodate the growing number of members.

AthenA is a club with its own philosophies, thus it always serves fresh fruit, freshly-baked apple pie and homemade bread in its KantinA. This, and other less visible initiatives, help to proudly set AthenA apart from other sports clubs.

However, the continued involvement of members and volunteers is required to maintain the club’s unique atmosphere and growing membership. Fortunately, large numbers of people have proven to be committed to the club.
