Formally known as Nelson Ladies Hockey Club, Pendle Forest was founded over 40 years ago. The club’s home ground was formally Nelson Cricket Club, but as the game progressed and All England stipulated all clubs must play on Astro –turf the club moved to Pendle Leisure Astro-turf Colne.

After several years and lack of facilities, Pendle Forest were offered the chance to move to the new Marsden Heights Community College Astro-turf, with its new facilities and fantastic playing surface; Pendle Forest have never looked back.

Growing from strength to strength and now run a junior training session with over 50 members starting from 7 years upwards, progressing to senior members from 14 years onwards. The club currently have 3 teams in the Lancashire and North hockey leagues.
