Established in 2015, London Roller Hockey Club aims to bring the fast-paced, exhilarating sport of Roller Hockey to the capital on a permanent basis.
The club was founded by Nik Bartlett and Joel De Figueiredo who in conjunction with fellow enthusiasts Joe Gotts, Jon Taylor and Kos Galtos met at The Folly in Monument, City of London, to discuss how to move the club forward.
After months of searching a suitable venue was located: The Lions Centre next to (and owned by) Millwall Football Club. London RHC attempted to enter the National Premier League in its first season, but were voted down in place of other clubs with a longer history, putting them instead in England’s second highest league, National Division One. After a long season the “Dragons” ran away with both the national title and their regional championship.
Since their inaugural season London RHC have upheld respectable Premier League positions in their following two seasons, beating almost all in front of them, but struggling to finish higher than fourth place. Regionally, however London have dominated winning the championship every season from 2015-2018, as well as being crowned Kent League champions.
In the 2018-19 season London just missed out on their first top flight title finishing as runners-up, narrowly losing just one game all season. Their 2nd placed finish now means that after just four seasons London RHC will compete in the World Skate European Cup 2019-20 against some of the continent’s biggest clubs.
The club welcomes players of all abilities from all over the world with current and former representatives from England, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Chile, Switzerland, France, Angola, South Africa, India, Uruguay and Australia with many representing their previous clubs and country at OK Liga and International level.
London RHC is working on opening its very own youth Academy, so watch this space!
