- Last year we had over 300+ members from different years, degrees and backgrounds.
- We have 8 teams playing in both the national BUCS league on a Wednesday and the local Yorkshire Leagues/ North league at the weekends. Alongside a strong partnership with Leeds Hockey club, who were promoted to national league this year!
- We cater for all skills, whether you are team GB or a complete beginner. As long as you're happy to pick up a stick (or try to!), you'll fit right in!
- LUUWHC prides itself on our high quality coaching and training, welcoming nature and overall team results.
These socials, dear reader, are legendary.
The hushed, sacred words that are 'Wednesday Nights' are the buzz words which speak a thousand words to all university students, whether you be in a sports club or not.
Wednesday night socials will see your average hockey girl developing fancy dress skills that would put Stella McCartney or a BBC costume drama to shame. Think mermaids, think great bristish bake off, think Dads on tour. Honestly, it is amazing how many functions a cardboard box can have.
We also have team socials within each squad that can vary from local curry nights to lazerquest. Further to this, there are Saturday socials, non drinking socials, general university events to go to (like frutiy!) and occasions to support the men's hockey team who we work closely with throughout the year. We've built a positive social and professional relationship with LUUMHC which means that you can easily get to know the gents on socials, at community and fundraising occasions or simply on side of the pitch.
If this is all sounding good so far? Well, we haven't even mentioned the wonderous dates that are Varsity, the Christmas Meal, the Hockey Ball, or Alumni Weekend.... Just you wait!
The past 5 years have been a phenomenal year for LUUWHC. Raising around £55,000 for Sudep Action, Cancer Research, SARSVL and St Georges crypt. We have achieved BUCS Club of the Year not just because of our sporting abilities, but because of the fantastic work that every member of our club has done for our community.
With many members of our club helping coach hockey in local schools, swimming the equivalent of the english channel (and back), climbing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, running the Leeds Half Marathon and the Colour Run. Alongside other envents such as our annual Race Night in memory of Emily ‘Sumo’ Sumaria and Pub Quiz nights. Every hockey girl’s social calendar has been full to the brim.
For this 2018-19 season, our fundraising calendar will most certainly not disappoint. We will continue to battle to the peaks, be champions in the pool, and on the track. Whilst topping last years amazing efforts will be difficult, we are aiming for bigger and better things this year, to reach our target of raising £15,000!
So if this sounds good to you then drop us an email during term time, or contact us through the website, twitter, instagram or facebook page with any questions, we're pretty flexible!
See you all soon,
Love the LUUWHC Committee
