A completely different sport has been played for years in more than just one club in Mönchengladbach – hockey! And it has been championship hockey. The over 1000 member strong Gladbach Hockey and Tennis Club (GHTC) has, in the course of its long history, experienced many highlights: the European Cup Winners Cup 1997, Cup winners in 2000 and the German Championship in 2002 are just a few examples of the current roll call. But the approximately 350 members of the Rheydt Spielverein e.V. regularly show their class. Winning the German Cup in 2001 counts as one of the hockey and tennis club´s greatest moments.
