Welcome to BLWHC! We are an incredibly friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic club who loves hockey! We accommodate for the entire spectrum when it comes to hockey experience; from complete beginners to national level players, we would love to have you in our club.
We have the luxury of training and playing home games on state of the art pitches at Lee Valley Hockey Centre in the Olympic Park. We have two competitive teams who play in BUCS and LUSL leagues. Last season we also created the Development Squad which is aimed at encouraging beginners to develop their skills and participate in friendly matches.
Off the pitch, we have regular socials which not only allow our members to form lasting friendships but also to get engaged in the union and raise money for RAG. We are a strong presence in the union when we meet on a Wednesday night at Tables to celebrate our successes! We also hold socials with other clubs throughout the year.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Monday 17:45-19:30 Lee Valley Hockey Centre E20 3AD
Equipment: Sports clothes and sticks/shin pads/gum shields if owned. Sticks, balls, bibs and any equipment required for drills.
Commitment levels required: University can be a demanding time and with exams and deadlines 100% attendance is by no means compulsory. It is clear to see that the more you put in the more you get out of both your fitness and skills but also the social side of the club.
1st Team BUCS 2b and 2nd Team Tier 5 North East London
Key Competition dates - Most Wednesday afternoons, some Sundays.
We have a strong social presence in the union and meet every Wednesday in the Griff Inn at 19:00. About once a month we do an activity outside of the Griff Inn and also we have annual meals such as Christmas Dinner, End of Season dinner and Old Girls.
