Four teams with a 50 year history of the friendliest club in North London
OMT Men’s Hockey London
Fun, ambitious and inclusive.
The men’s section at OMT is an extremely fun and inclusive environment for players of all abilities, young and old. We strive to offer the best level of hockey possible to all members. Our coaches push players to improve constantly.
We have four league teams and a friendly XI so there’s a team for you, whatever your ability level. Wherever you fit in you’ll feel accepted and part of the team from day 1.
Things don’t just stop at hockey. We hold regular socials in the clubhouse, curry houses and at members houses; including the annual zorb football match.
We have two state-of-the-art water-based astroturfs located next to our fantastic OMT War Memorial Clubhouse, with six modern changing rooms, a discounted bar for members, social and meeting rooms, a viewing balcony and plasma screens with BT and Sky Sports.
Both our pitches and clubhouse are located within the grounds of Merchant Taylors’ School, a safe and friendly environment easily accessible from the M25 and Moor Park Tube Station on the Metropolitan Line.
Our playing and social facilities are second to none.
Training is on a Tuesday evenings from 19:30 – 21:00 on one of our two state-of-the-art water based astroturf pitches. While a lot of fun is involved, training is taken by some exceptional coaches that have played and coached at very high standards.

The club’s plan
Old Merchant Taylors’ Hockey Club has grown from a club that relied on the school’s old boys to a community club with a hugely diverse set of members. Our players come from all over London, many of whom have joined based on the club’s friendly reputation. Once a player joins, they seldom leave.
We do enjoy the benefits of the hockey-ambitious school boys joining to progress their hockey and MTS old boys returning to continue playing hockey.
The Junior section is quickly becoming a key feeder to the Men’s section. The talent within the young players is exceptional.
OMT has had a change of leadership in the last 5 years and the club is growing fast with the ambition to become one of the biggest in North London with the best facilities and the friendliest group of players.
