Welcome to the University of Liverpool Hockey club

There are plenty of opportunities to play hockey whilst you are at University. Male, female, mixed, all on a newly laid astroturf, with a wide selection to suit your needs.


The men’s side of the club currently consists of three Wednesday teams competing in the BUCS University leagues and two Saturday teams competing in the regional North West Hockey leagues.
