Hockey Varsity 2017

Help us take our hockey club to the top


We believe everyone at Nottingham should have the chance to participate in hockey at a level that feels right – whether that is captaining the first team, playing in an intra-mural league, or as a beginner learning the ropes of a new game.

We want Nottingham to be the leading university for hockey and one of the best national league clubs in the UK – helping our students achieve their sporting potential.

Our vision

Our hockey club is the largest sports club in the University's Student Union, with six BUCS teams catering for all levels, as well as a strong intra-mural programme.

Building on these strong foundations, our aim is to become the leading university for hockey, developing students into senior international hockey players.

Last season, our women's and men's first teams ranked 3rd and 4th in BUCS League A respectively, but we are striving towards consistent top three finishes – a position we feel our talented students deserve to be in.

Nottingham has a strong legacy for producing world-class hockey players, including Olympians Nick Catlin, George Pinner, Anne Panter, Rob Clift and Simon Hazlitt. We truly believe that with your help we will be able to provide Team GB with players for Tokyo 2020.

How your support can help

Your support can help provide students with:

  • Coaching – making it possible for students to maximise their opportunity to play and progress in the sport
  • Equipment and facilities – ensuring quality provision for all our teams and taking our performance to the next level with the use of technology like video analysis
  • Performance scholarships – ensuring that some of the country's best hockey talent comes to Nottingham to boost our teams and success. Around a third of sporting scholars come from low income backgrounds, making a university education a real possibility for them.

We can achieve great things together

With your help we can ensure that Nottingham is considered one of the best institutions for hockey players in the country and that more students are encouraged to enjoy the game whilst at university.
