Women’s Hockey is an exciting, inclusive club that is always looking for new members! If you’ve played at school, at an international level, or never before, come along and get involved. It’s a great way to make new friends. Our committee is passionate about the value of team sports as part of your university experience. We promote sports as an important component of physical and mental health, and the club is a ready-made support system as you make the transition to university.
There’s stuff going on every day of the week if you want to take part, and so the club is what you make of it. All members train on a Thursday and then play in matches throughout the week. We compete in BUCS (British University College Sport) on Wednesdays, we are also closely tied to our alumni club, the London Academicals, who train on a Monday with games on a Saturday in which everyone is encouraged to take part, and we have our LUSL (London University Sports League) on Sundays. Additionally, there are LUSL mixed games with the Men’s club on Sundays with a social every week, featuring the famous roasted potatoes at the Leyton Star!
Our social secs take charge on a Wednesday evening, with themed club socials every Wednesday (dress up recommended). We have a close relationship with the men’s club, whom we celebrate big events with throughout the year; Christmas Ball, Varsity and Summer Tour are not to be missed. We also host welfare and volunteering events weekly to interest all members, as well as career events with our sponsors. UCLWHC is a big and vibrant community we would love everyone to be a part of.
We have an impressive volunteering record, raising over £10,000 for our club charity, Bloodwise, in 2019, and supporting many local charities in the past year including Coppafeel, Student Minds & SolidariTee. New this year are volunteering on Friday nights with Hockey Inner City and on Sunday mornings with the East London Juniors. Both are new initiatives to make sports accessible to underprivileged children; we share our hockey expertise but also our experiences of university and careers to inspire them.
