Team of the Year 2016 Holcombe Men's Hockey TeamGold - Holcombe Hockey Men's First XI

Holcombe went without losing a National League game or play off game between 1 March 2014 and 16 April 2016, an unbeaten run of 42 games across three divisions. At the end of the 2015/2016 season, their first year in the top flight of the sport, Holcombe finished top of the main league and qualified as one of only two teams to represent England in the Euro Hockey League in October 2016 - the world’s premier club hockey competition.


Silver - Medway Ladies RFC

Medway Rugby Club’s ladies’ section have a five-year plan to reach the big time.  Winning  National South East 2 is the first step in a journey which will hopefully see them knocking on the door of the Premiership – the top-flight in the women’s game.  Better players, who normally leave the club to play at higher levels, now play their rugby at Medway.  Medway now play in National 1, three divisions below their dream destination, the Premiership.


Bronze - Medway Dragons Ladies Handball Team

Created as direct influence of the London Olympic Legacy in 2012, the club grows steadily every year. Having only competed in invitational tournaments around the south-east of England, the club entered the South East Development League in 2015/2016.  The Dragons managed to get into the playoffs where a win over London Angels earned them promotion to the Super8 League for 2016/2017.
