The England women's national field hockey team has won silver three times at the Commonwealth Games. England have also won the 2006 Women's Field Hockey World Cup Qualifier and the 2002 Champions Challenge.

History

Marjorie Pollard played hockey nearly every year for England from 1921 to 1937.[2]

The team toured New Zealand in 1938 and the US in 1947. Notable players were Barbara and Bridget West and Mary Russell Vick. The teams had to play in long stockings whatever the heat until they were replaced with split skirts and knee high stockings.[3]
