Welcome to University of the Arts Men's Hockey Club.
Men's Hockey are are one of the newest yet most successful clubs within the Sports Federation at UAL.
Founded in 2009 with only 8 players we now boast two strong teams that both compete in BUCS League fixtures every Wednesday alongside varying cup games throughout the season. Our 1st team have been promoted for two years in a row and are again looking for promotion in the forthcoming season. Weather you want to play a high standard of competitive hockey or your just looking for a fun social knock about, or both! We have it all.
We train on a Sunday evening from 4-6pm at Kennington Park, with a qualified coach who has both represented and played for England Hockey. After training we meet up with University of the Arts Women's Hockey team for a drink and some food. Fixtures are held on a Wednesday afternoon across London with our home pitch at Chiswick. Every Wednesday evening after matches there is a Sports Social where all sports teams across UAL get together for a big night out or an event. We also Have a fitness session every Sunday evening at Kennington Park.
However, It’s important to know we don’t JUST play Hockey, throughout the year all Sports teams host a Wednesday Night Social every week. Everyone also has the opportunity to attend several big events throughout the season: Arts Varsity Cup - Is held towards the end of the season, with all of the UAL sports teams competing against our University rivals Goldsmiths for the chance to win the Arts Varsity Cup. This year Men’s Hockey won our game 11-1 helping UAL to a convincing 5 - 3 victory. Arts Legends Weekender - Is a weekend when all the old players from UAL sports teams return to take on the current crop, after which needless to say there is a big party. Sports and Society Federation Ball - Is at the end of the season and is an opportunity for everyone to get dressed up and have a huge end of year party. This is also where awards are given out for the most deserving teams and individuals. This year was a highly successful one for Mens’ Hockey winning both Team of the Year and also winning our league by a huuuuge margin.
Needless to say we celebrated pretty hard... .....and of course Sports Tour held during the Easter Holiday - No sporting year would be complete without a week away on far and distant lands. The past few years we have visited Lloret De Mar, Salou and Celaya along with many others. Tour is a chance to get to know other members from all the other sports teams at UAL and also a great opportunity for some inter University relations. Nedless to say this is one of the highlights of the university year and is not to be missed! The official sign up for our club happens at the annual Freshers Fayre held on the 27th September at the Central Saint Martins' Kings Cross campus. The Freshers Fayre is the place to sign up to all sports and activities, and of course get loads of free swag, so make sure you all come along! If you are interested or you feel you would like to be a part of our club please dont hesitate to get in contact.
