Join one of the biggest and one of the most successful clubs in university sport.

Comprising of over 220 members between the men and women clubs, hockey is one of Newcastle's biggest sports. There are 11 teams between both clubs (7 women, 4 men) that compete in BUCS and the England Hockey National League plus Yorkshire & North East Hockey Leagues at weekends.

The Women’s 1st team are competing at the highest league level in BUCS National League and are also in the England Hockey National League, Conference North on Saturdays.
