Tavistock Hockey Club was formed in 1948 when the pitch was purchased by Messrs, Morrison, Maunder, Treloar and White who became the first Trustees of the club.
Since 1948 the club has run both Men's and Ladies teams without a break, to the present, which is a testament to the tenacity of the club members throughout the years.
In 1965, Messrs Treloar and White resigned as Trustees and Cooper and Davey were appointed.
In 1977 the existing Trustees retired and new Trustees (the clubs present Trustees), Mr.P.Plumb, Mrs.I.Pennington, Mrs.S.Spackman and Mr.C.Owen were appointed.
The Trustees are the "Legal" Owners of the club and are responsible for overseeing the affairs of the club. The day to day running of the club falls to the Committee who are elected by the membership of the A.G.M.
Although the club pitch has always been in its present location, the pitch was not precisely in the same position in 1948 as it is today. In 1966 by agreement with the developers of the Grenville Drive Housing, a land "swap" took place to enable the construction of development. This placed the pitch in the position it is today.
