A message from our president...

Welcome to the official website of Parks Hockey Club Inc. (PHC). Since its establishment in 1939, PHC has remained dedicated to fostering and advancing hockey for all members of the Association interested in participating.

Engaging in sports offers not only physical well-being but also enhances mental wellness (positivity & calmness), promotes social growth (forging lifelong friendships), and contributes to personal development (cultivating resilience and confidence).

Our progress in expanding hockey within Townsville wouldn’t be possible without the unwavering support of our esteemed Life Members, dedicated Executive team, enthusiastic Volunteers, committed Players, and supportive Families, all of whom return year after year with their passion for the game.

Whether you’re a seasoned player or new to the sport, we invite you to join us on the field – even if you’ve never held a stick before, it’s a chance to experience the thrill firsthand!

Sincerely,

Peta Davis
President
Parks Hockey Club Inc
