KHC Dragons was founded in October 1946 and is now one of the largest hockey clubs in Belgium. The club focuses on providing both recreational- as well as top hockey to youth and (young) adults. Dragons has organized several successful hockey events in the past, most notably the 2015 HWL, two editions of EHL (2011 and 2017) and several Belgian Hockey Finals.
The club is ideally located in Brasschaat, near the city of Antwerp in the center of Europe, close to the border with the Netherlands. Distances from major West-European cities:
- Brussels (BE): 60 km
- Amsterdam (NL): 150 km
- Koln (D): 220 km
- Paris (F): 360 km
- London (UK): 390 km
Transfer from Brussels International Airport will take about 45 minutes up to 1 hour, depending on rush hour traffic. The smaller Antwerp (Deurne) Airport is far closer, but only a limited number of European destinations are serviced. Connections also through Rotterdam and Eindhoven.
By train: Eurostar / Thalys through Brussel Midi.
The venue is uniquely situated in the beautiful 147 hectare municipal Park of Brasschaat which consists of recreational areas, playing fields, picturesque pond views, fountains, walking paths, castle, flower gardens and children’s zoo. The exceptional clubhouse ("The Mansion of Dragons") is an elegant Hampton-style villa. The spacious building includes all modern comfort including professional kitchen and two fantastic bars.
The Dragons site currently features 3 (FIH approved) water base pitches and 1 semi-sanded pitch. At the terrace of "The Mansion" and along the entire length of the A-pitch there’s a solid spectator stand featuring four rows of seats (1,200 pax).
