The Hockey club is a close club with a friendly environment and a tradition of success. We have 4 well-integrated men’s teams catering for a range of capabilities from beginner to international standard, training and playing twice a week in the British Universities and College Sport (BUCS) League and the N4 Saturday league. In the 2016/17 season the club enjoyed significant success with our 1st team winning promotion to the BUCS Premiership South as well as claiming bronze medals at the European Indoor Championships in Bratislava, Slovakia. This all culminated in the Athletic Union’s Team of the Year award coming our way in April. To add to this, the 2nd and 4th teams both secured promotions in their respective N4 Saturday leagues to ensure that opposition will be ever more competitive in seasons ahead.
In April, we contend Varsity with Swansea University, which is always a memorable day, thanks in no small part to the comprehensive nature of our victories in recent years.
The Social Side:
We have an eventful and varied social calendar with regular post-match socials every Wednesday come rain or shine, win or lose. While we play hard to win on the pitch, we realise that at our amateur level it is just as important to ensure that we have fun.
Our weekly socials happen without fail and in great atmosphere. Added to this, we have the tradition of wearing “ones” to these socials – smart casual dress with our distinct hockey tie, creating a sense of identity. Unique events include a Christmas Social, The Black Tie Hockey Ball, skiing trips and a brilliant tour to Kortrijk in Belgium over the summer. Crucial to all this, our social events take place in conjunction with the Ladies Hockey Club, creating a healthy atmosphere and making us the largest and most social sports club in Cardiff University.
We are very open bunch and welcome all corners of life, from all standards. Equipment wise - a hockey stick is required, which could be provided, if necessary, and shin pads are also useful.
