Welcome to LSE Hockey Club! We're always on the lookout for new members so whether you've been playing for years or have never picked up a hockey stick before, come along and get involved.
We've been hard at work over the summer to ensure that the 21/22 season is as active as ever. In line with government guidance on COVID-19, we'll continue to host weekly training sessions, matches and socials.
The benefits of playing a team sport to your physical and mental well-being whilst at university are endless and we want to make this opportunity available to all! Weekly training sessions are held on Tuesday evenings at the fantastic Lee Valley Olympic Park under the expertise of international coaches. You can also get involved in our regular fitness sessions held on campus. Having 2 men's and 2 women's teams competing in their respective BUCS leagues means that anyone and everyone can enjoy competitive hockey on a weekly basis. Hard-fought Wednesday BUCS match play led both Men's and Women's teams to cup finals and league victories last season. Our Men's 1st XI also won the London Universities Tournament for the third year running. Meanwhile, on Sundays, there is also an opportunity for both sides of the club to come together and get involved in mixed team friendly matches. All of this means that we are well-equipped to cater for all abilities, all commitment levels, undergrads and postgrads!
Off the pitch, LSE Hockey Club is just as lively and successful. Wednesday socials often see our Men’s and Women’s sides to come together as one club before heading to Zoo Bar. Our diverse social calendar, carefully crafted by our social secs, means that no two weeks look the same! We often head to LSE's student pub 'the Three Tuns' on Friday evenings to unwind and catch up together. Our annual tour is not to be missed either!
Our Club is a ready-made support system as you settle into life at LSE. From socials, to community outreach, to support with your studies, we’re here to make your university experience the best that it can possibly be!
Standard Membership to the Club will give you access to everything we have to offer. You can get involved in matches, socials and training as much as you like! This fee goes towards, Tuesday training and Wednesday matches at the Olympic Park, professional coaches, umpires, reimbursed transport to and from games & the subsidisation of kit.
Given the uncertainty presented by COVID-19 and the suspension of competitive BUCS play until January, we have also decided to offer a £35 Membership for Michaelmas Term to allow for increased flexibility. This will support our training, friendly matches, socials and other events in term one. There will be another £45 Membership fee in the Lent Term as competitive league hockey resumes.
If playing isn't for you, consider purchasing a Social Membership for just £15!
