James Bernard Hockley (born 16 April 1979) is a former English professional cricketer who played for Kent County Cricket Club.

Born in Beckenham, Hockley made his first-class cricket debut in 1998 against Oxford University. Seen as a limited overs specialist, Hockley made 81 one-day appearances for the county. He was released at the end of the 2002 season.[1][2]

Between 2002 and 2009, Hockley taught sports at Marlborough House School in Cranbrook, whilst continuing to play cricket for Hartley Country Club in the Kent Cricket League.[2][3][4][5] His performances for Hartley prompted Kent to re-sign him ahead of the 2009 season[2] and he played two more seasons for the county before returning to focus on teaching whilst still playing for Hartley.[3][4][6][7]
