Firstly, may we give you a warm welcome to DMU from everyone at De Montfort University Hockey Club. If you get involved with a society, the experiences and memories you make with them will turn these years into the best of your life.
DMU Hockey Club is proud to be the biggest mixed sports club that actually goes out every week without fail. The club has two BUCS teams: A Men's team and a women's team, and a mixed development squad catering for all abilities from county and international representatives to someone who wants to develop their enthusiasm and passion into talent! Double promotion winners in 2015, 5 years consecutively Mixed Hockey Varsity Champions, and 2017 men's varsity winners. We are certainly a team to be reckoned with.
Our BUCS teams play on Wednesday afternoons and our mixed club on Saturdays at our home ground, St Margret’s Pastures, just a short walk away from our campus. Training is open to everyone of all abilities on Monday evenings and Friday evenings. We have a motto at our club, "we train hard, we play hard and we celebrate even harder".
Official Club Partners: DMU Hockey is pleased to announce a new partnership with former European champions, Leicester Ladies Hockey Club. The collaboration allows for national standard coaching, physiotherapy, mentoring, and travel across Europe. Non-playing partners include the British Heart Foundation, and this year's bars in the city TBC
Socials: DMU hockey is renowned for having a great social side to the society. The club goes out every Wednesday without fail during term time, regularly being one of the largest mixed socials on a Night out at the Student Union. Having unique and entertaining themed socials is an integral component of the club, with new ideas being thought up by social secretaries alongside the traditional, long running themes such as our Christmas meal.
Events: In 2015, DMU Hockey became official charitable partners with the British Heart Foundation in which we hold fundraisers, donation events and awareness of the cause. We also participate in events with the De Montfort Student Union and are often seen cheering on sports teams we are proud to share a crest with. We also have team meals, curry nights, pub quizzes and laser quest evening to incorporate everyone into our club!
Tour and Travel: As a club, we are often seen across the UK (at Milton Keynes Hockey Festival, Tournamental Warwick festival) and Europe as we travel to meet and defeat rival universities from across the UK in countries such as Croatia, Spain and Italy. As partners with Leicester Ladies Hockey Club, we travel across Europe to support and entertain our hockey partners. Funded by DMU Global, cheap travel to watch sport and indulge in cultural activities with LLHC is something we recommend to all our playing and non-playing members.
