Iney Pennington

Posted by Tom Honey on 5 March 2018

Iney Pennington was born in near to Tavistock, part of a farming family and at the formation of Tavistock Hockey Club in 1947 joined the Ladies team as a founder member, and played regularly for many years.

Iney took on the role of umpire for the club and fulfilled that responsibility with enthusiasm and fairness for many years, as well becoming a valued mentor and guide to the lady members, many of whom she taught, being a teacher at the Tavistock College.

In later years she was invited to become a Trustee of the Club  ( one of four Trustees) and remained as a Trustee until the original grass pitch at Grenville Drive was sold in 201.

Through the difficult process of selling the pitch Iney provided invaluable advice and guidance in her inimitable way to those club members charged with carrying the sale through.


In her failing years Iney remained in contact with the older members of the club, always interested in news of the cub.


A true friend of Tavistock Hockey Club.


The Hockey club was represented at the funeral by Alex Davies, commitee member and second team captain.
