Welcome to The St. George’s Men’s Hockey club, a club of small size, but with huge ability and ambition. We accept any new members regardless of ability or previous experience on a hockey pitch, and are always keen to bring in new members. We have always been successful, and due to our small size you are guaranteed to make excellent new friends, not only male, but also from the ladies club who we often socialise with. We are competitive and laid back, this mix is what makes us bond together so well and we hope we can add more people and personalities to our Club.
We may only have one team but don’t be put off by that, we have a constant turnover of players meaning we need new members every year and we want as many people as possible to join the squad to maximise our playing potential. You will always have a chance to get some game time regardless of your ability as we are passionate about equal input and involvement for everyone.
Every week we train on Monday nights at 7-9pm at a local school pitch in Mitcham which is easy to reach either by bike, bus and car or even by foot if you want a warm-up jog! We are coached by our captain and other senior players, we are also lucky enough to have graduates of the club who return to do coaching sessions every few weeks. We run fitness sessions together on the weekends and occasionally during the week to make sure we are all in tiptop shape.
We currently play in BUCS South Eastern 2A league, the 2nd division in our region and the matches are played on Wednesdays.
We play in 2 different cups as well: BUCS and UH Cup, which is a special, hotly contested and historic cup between all the medical schools in London.
If you are a competitive and passionate about hockey like us, we have players who play club hockey too, for example, London Edwardians, who play on Saturdays, if this is something you are interested in then it can be easily arranged and is perfectly manageable alongside University hockey.
We are a close-knit group, and maintaining a good relationship with each other off the pitch is very important to play and train well on the pitch. The foundation of the social aspect of the club is getting together on a Wednesday evening after the match, regardless of the result, in the SU bar or at a local curry house, and are regularly joined by the Ladies club too. Friday nights at a local watering hole or before an SU event are also regular social occasions for members of the club. The club Chairman organises many fun and enjoyable events filled with Hockey club tradition, in particular our annual club Tour; a weekend away with the club to a destination of Chair’s choice, previous destinations include Madrid, Prague, Berlin and Budapest.
The men’s, ladies’ and mixed clubs always celebrate at the end of the season with a black tie ball with a sit-down meal at a classy establishment followed by an after-party. All socials are great fun and enjoyed by all regardless of your tastes and alcohol is always optional!
