Ashmoor Hockey Club is a hockey club that was formed in 2003, based primarily in Ashburton, Devon, England.

The club has had to play its league matches at Isca College Exeter since around 2007, because the 3G pitch at their home base of South Dartmoor Community College did not meet the new requirements of the International Hockey Federation (FIH) or England Hockey Board. They play in purple, green and white hooped socks, white shorts, and purple shirts.

The Men's 1st team (formed when the club was established) has risen the equivalent of 8 divisions in their 7 seasons as a team winning 3 leagues and finishing strongly in the other seasons. The Ladies team won Channel 2B in their first season as a team. The majority of Ashmoor's success however comes from their junior teams. The most notable successes have been the 5 National Indoor appearances and the National U15 Plate run that took them to a final with Teddington Hockey Club (the oldest club in the world),[1] which they lost 3 – 0.[2]

Many players have represented Devon county and played for the West of England teams, and several players have made the full England Junior squads, the Wales squads, and 6 being selected for the UK Lions.

As of the 2013–14 season Ashmoor has four senior teams:

Team Division League
Men's 1st XI Conference South West of England & South Wales Hockey League
Men's 2nd XI South Eastern District 1 West of England & South Wales Hockey League
