About the University of Plymouth Mens Hockey Club
Welcome to the University of Plymouth Hockey Club! Established in 1970, we have gone from strength to strength to now be one of the University"s biggest and most successful clubs competing against some of the best clubs in the country.
We offer 4 Men's teams affiliated to the Devon Hockey Association, playing in Premier Division 3, 2 teams playing in South west division 1 and 1 teams in South West District 1 respectively of the Davis Wood Hockey League. We also offer 2 Men's teams in the British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) Leagues, playing in the BUCS Western Conference 2A and Western Conference 4A. We also enter all 3 teams into the Devon Cup and Devon Trophy every year, winning the Devon Cup and being Devon Trophy runners up in 2008. In 2010 we were runners up in the Devon Cup.
As for the ladies, they offer 3 teams with the 1st XI competing in Trelawny 1, the 2nd XI competing in Trelawny 2 and with the 3rd XI playing in Plymouth and District. They also have 2 teams in the British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) Leagues, also playing in Western Conference 1A and Western Conference 3A. Both ladies clubs have had a very successful year and have been promoted in both their BUCS leagues and challenged for the title in their corresponding saturday leagues.
The two Clubs also socialise together, holding plenty of socials throughout the season, from the Christmas Ball to a three-legged pub crawl, as well as various fundraising events!
