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 optional matches 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 the GB Mens U21 Mens Manager training our squad, ex England U21 captains in our alumni, and 6 teams to play for, 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.
