University of Bath Hockey Club

The University of Bath’s student-dedicated hockey programme is headed by South Africa international Jody Paul, who is also centrally contracted by England Hockey.

The club is made up of six men’s and six ladies’ teams who play in the British University and Colleges (BUCS) leagues on Wednesdays. Student players also have the opportunity of stepping up into the set-up of our partner club Team Bath Buccaneers.

Each university team has its own dedicated coach and trains at least once a week with other optional training sessions run throughout.

The teams play on Sitec water-based pitch and Pitch 1 sand dressed hockey pitch; both situated on campus at the University’s world-renowned Team Bath Sports Training Village.

Many of the student hockey players also represent Team Bath Buccaneers in England Hockey League competition, while recent graduates Peter Scott and Tim Nurse have played for England at senior and U21 level respectively.
