Strong, well-organised clubs are the foundation of hockey in Europe and recognising and valuing the work of our clubs is one of the missions of the EHF.

The EHF wishes to congratulate all the finalists for the wonderful work that they are doing for hockey, but there can only be one winner.

The EHF Development Projects Committee and Executive Board have chosen Servette HC from Geneva, Switzerland as the winners of the EuroHockey Club of the Year Award 2010.

Whilst any of the entries would have been worthy winners, Servette HC showed impressive player growth from 12 players in 1990 to 253 in 2010. This, along with the successful link with a local school and the strong ties with family contributed to the final decision.

The EHF would also like to acknowledge the following clubs who impressed with their entries and were strong contenders:

CD Terrassa, Spain - Continuous development of family hockey and the club celebrated its Centenary in 2010.

Bremer HC, Germany - Player growth from 169 members in 2002 to 389 members in 2010, with an emphasis on facility development and focus on Youth.

Servette HC will be presented with their award during the EuroHockey Club Champions Challenge I, Men, in Lousada, Portugal, where their men’s team is competing.
