Hockey Women's

Welcome to Reading University Ladies Hockey Club, the University's 2014/15 Club of the Year, a student-run club welcoming players of all hockey abilities. This season we've had 3 teams but we are excitingly introducing a 4th for next year! Our coach Tom Carson won the University's coach of the year award for the 2015/16 season after a very successful year.

We are very pleased to be offering new sport sponsorship opportunities and have teamed up with Sponsure to promote these. You can see all our current sport sponsorship packages at  Reading University Ladies Hockey  SPONSORSHIP   please do not hesitate to get in touch through Sponsure if any of these would be of interest to you or the businesses you work in.


Rivalling the Mens Club for size, the Ladies Hockey Club fields three BUCS teams that play every Wednesday against other universities, and an active development squad.  The club has been expanding year on year, with this year being no exception.  The previous seasons have been very successful, with our 1s playing in Prem B.  Additionally, the 2s ended up second and reaching the quarter finals of the cup whilst the 3s were promoted.  The Saturday team has also been promoted and continues to be popular and we are very keen to maintain the great standard of hockey throughout the club.

Our teams play every week both at Reading and at other Universities.  We have a GB international, Tom Carson, as our coach for the forthcoming season, which is great news for the future of both the Ladies and Mens Clubs.  Training is twice a week, on Monday and Thursday evenings, giving everyone a chance to improve their skills and performance, which we hope will lead to further success.

We have links with Reading Hockey Club, one of the best in the country, as a few of the University players train and play Saturday matches for the club.  This is a fantastic opportunity for players of all abilities to get involved at a level that suits them.

Reading University Ladies Hockey Club is well known for its weekly socials, and regardless of the result we often celebrate in style with the Men's Club.  It is both a social and a competitive club which caters for all standards and abilities.  Whether you want to play hockey at a high standard or just for fun, RULHC accommodates all!

So whatever standard, ability or experience, come and join one of the most prestigious sports clubs at Reading University and we will find a team for you!

To keep up to date with everything that is going on during freshers week and for more information about pre-season, information will soon be on here!
