ISCI Hockey Jakarta has been active for around 25 years and is a very socially inclined club which allows many people (a mixture of locals, expatriates, blow-ins and heavy drinkers) to play field hockey in Jakarta. ‘Training’ and games are held at Gelora Bung Karno (Senayan) water-based artificial turf pitch every Wednesday night (from 8pm) and Saturday afternoon (from 4pm), mostly by way of organized or scratch games which are usually full pitch, but can be 5-a-side, depending on who turns up to fill the void called ‘opposition’.
Frequent overseas tours and visitors, and participation in and organization of local competitions ensures a wide variety of games, locations, opponents and standards, with the emphasis on fun rather than very serious competition. All are welcome, beginners included. There is no membership fee, just pay when you play at Rp. 100,000 per game (towards pitch rental).
