About the Club

We are one of the largest, proudest, and most socially active clubs in the AU. We train every Monday Evening, play at a strong standard in the BUCS league every Wednesday, and have a unique partnership with the renowned Brooklands Team for who we play for at the weekend.

Whilst you may not be spending every day of your week playing hockey, the club will make you feel like your university career is defined by your participation in this society. We’re looking for hockey lovers who are looking to be a part of the MUMHC on and off the field.

Club Philosophy

We are dedicated to our hockey, proud of our players, and in reality just a good group of guys who have a laugh.

With ex England U21 captains in our alumni, 5 teams to play for and a partnership with the Premier league club Brooklands, we

pride ourselves in being able to cater for the novice and the overly advanced hockey player. We train hard, we play hard, and we aim to make your time at Manchester unforgettable.

The “Purple and Proud” phrase is thrown around a lot in Manchester… but we honestly do our best to live it.

About the league

The Campus Sport Hockey League is mixed; teams must have a 5-5 split in sexes in the outfield but the goalkeeper may be either. Staff and students are welcome to enter. The league runs from October to April and matches are played on Sundays, 4:00-8:00pm, on the Astroturf pitches at the Armitage Sports Centre.

Team captains are invited to attend a pre-season meeting, at the Armitage Site. At this meeting teams received all relevant league information for the year, including a handbook and league fixtures.

For more information contact campus.sport@manchester.ac.uk or drop into the UoM Sport office on Oxford Road.
