2020/21 Season Roundup
Our 2020/21 Season Roundup is here! Read all about what we've been up to this past year:
Offering hockey at both a high and beginner level, as well as an inclusive and friendly community off the pitch, we help all our members to expand their university experience and have fun. Whether its an Animal Kingdom themed sports night, our Varsity match at the Olympic stadium or even a simple welfare call, our club thrives because the people within it. You simply won’t find another club like us on campus.
UCL Men’s Hockey Club is renowned throughout the university as one of the largest and most sociable societies at UCL. We have 3 teams, all competing in their respective BUCS leagues. The 1st XI play a high standard of hockey, just missing out on 1st place in the BUCS South Eastern Tier 2, and winning our Varsity match against our rivals Kings College London at the Olympic Stadium. The 2nd and 3rd teams both provide a socially welcoming environment and a good standard of hockey, with the 3rd XI allowing for even beginners to get game time! This season all three of our teams will be competing in leagues and playing matches on Wednesday afternoons. We also have strong ties with our Alumni Club, ‘The Accies’, who offer extremely competitive Saturday hockey for players who really want to develop their hockey skills. For those who want a more flexible commitment or to try out hockey in a more relaxed environment, we will be running a Mixed Hockey League this year with the Women's Club; Social Hockey is back!
Off the field, UCL are just as lively and successful; we have extremely close ties to the Women’s Club, with whom we organise a summer tour every year and run joint socials on a weekly basis. Our Social Calendar is also packed, with events like our Annual Ball and Varsity planned (COVID permitting), so there’s loads to get involved in. From charity events, to welfare training sessions, there’s also lots of volunteering and welfare opportunities on offer to learn and expand your UCL experience outside of hockey!
Joining our club is a great opportunity to meet a whole new group of friends outside of your course, halls and year group.
