BUCS Hockey

BUCS Hockey








The University of Birmingham Hockey Club is one of the most successful University hockey clubs in the country. We have 5 teams for both men and women. All teams compete on both Saturdays and in BUCS on Wednesdays. Our ladies 1s compete in the EHL Invested National Premier Division and Men’s 1s in the EHL National West. We have a strong attitude for wanting to be the best, and every team competes for a top 3 finish in their respective leagues.

The Club has a number of international players competing for us currently, as well as many notable alumni. With brand new, world-class facilities including 2 international grade hockey pitches, the club is well set for another successful season. The Club is proudly sponsored by EH Smith Builders Merchants and Phaidon International.

How to get involved


Taster session and/or trial information will be available soon. The membership fee is £175.

Please note that on top of the club fee there is a £16 fee that covers personal accident insurance when training or competing for the University, access to free cross-training sessions such as circuits and yoga, as well as a contribution to the costs of affiliation to various national governing bodies.  This fee is only payable once so if you did decide to join a second club then you would not need to pay a second fee.

Get into hockey for fitness, socialising, performance, development and achievement.
