About Hockey (Women's)
Welcome to Women’s Hockey!
We pride ourselves on being an inclusive club, welcoming players from all ages and abilities. Whether you are a new or experienced player, we can assure that your time with the club will be both fun and fulfilling.
All we ask for in return is enthusiasm and commitment, both to the sport and your teammates. Together we can ensure a supportive, kind atmosphere and in turn, an incredible team!
We compete in both the BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) League and the Midlands Conference Plate every year. This gives us the opportunity to partake in some friendly competition and put our training to the test.
Wednesday in Northampton is student night. Socials are an important aspect of University in building personal relationships with your teammates and having fun, playing games and letting loose. We may also join up with other UON teams, giving you the opportunity to meet new people and make some fantastic friends. With a different theme each week and plenty of silly costumes, going to town afterwards with your teammates is an experience not to be missed.
We train every Monday 6:45pm-8:15pm at Moulton College, Gate 4 Pitsford Centre, Pitsford Rd, Moulton NN3 7QL
We train on a water-based pitch, where our coach plans and runs sessions suited to what we can work on as a team- which means our sessions are always varied and tailored to suit everyone. Travel to the venue is not an issue, as we usually car share and can pick people up.
Meet the Committee!
