Our 
Story

The Club was founded as the West London Ball Hockey Club in 2003. It was originally set up to provide adult players with the opportunity to play pick-up games with friends and other hockey players living in London. The Club evolved and made a competitive debut in 2010 in a BHUK tournament as the London Canadians.

It was another three years before the club returned to competitive action by entering the Capital Cup. It originally had two teams from West London playing against teams from Nottingham before teams from across London and the south east joined. This became an annual event and ran until 2013. The quality of play improved each year and the team produced several good results.

 

2013 was also the first season of the London Ball Hockey League (LBHL) and the first time the team played as the Ealing Eagles. In 2014 the LBHL moved to the Bisley roller rink with regular weekly matches. The Ealing Eagles entered the season in a joint venture with the London Jets resulting in a challenge for honours.

 

After initial success the league folded after just two seasons. With a number of players leaving the London area in 2015 the Ealing Eagles withdrew from competitive action but continued to play pick-up games and challenge matches for the next couple of years. The 2017/18 season saw the Ealing Eagles return to competition by entering Tier 3 of the National league. The team included several members of the Youth Team plus a few experienced players and after a successful season the team were promoted to Tier 2.

 

With the demand for more matches increasing, the South East Ball Hockey League (SEBHL) was formed with teams from the south of England competing in a league format at the Bordon roller rink commencing in time for the 2018/19 season. The Ealing Eagles played in the National tier 2 competition and the SEBHL. While few points were earned in tier 2 the Ealing Eagles finished the regular season in second place in the SEBHL before losing in the playoff semi-finals.
