Blues Captain’s Welcome 2018/19
Words from Amy Edwards (Blues Captain 2019/20) coming soon
Hello and Welcome to CUWHC!
I’m Hattie and I will be the Women’s Blue’s Captain for the forthcoming 2018-19 season.
CUHC is the largest mixed sports club in the University, fielding 3 men’s and women’s teams. The Women’s Blues (1st XI), the Nomads (2nd XI) and the Bedouins (3rd XI) all train twice a week and play league matches on Saturdays.
The Blues and Nomads will both be playing in the 1N league, with the Blue’s aiming for promotion back into the East Premier Division. The Bedouins play in 3NW and will also be aiming for promotion. The Blues and Nomads play BUCS matches on Wednesdays in the Premier South A (Blues) and Midlands 2B (Nomads) divisions.
All 3 teams play in an annual Varsity Match against Oxf*rd – widely known throughout the hockey club as the best day of the year – it is no doubt the highlight of the season for everyone involved.
Hockey at Cambridge is a great experience – both sporting and social. We play a high standard of hockey, and although it is a considerable time commitment to train, travel and play, it is extremely rewarding. It is entirely feasible to play University sport, achieve academically and enjoy the social life.
A bit about me – I’m in my final year studying Natural Sciences at Caius, having played in the Blues for the past two years. Previously I have played for the Wessex Leopards U16-U18, competed in the Sainsbury’s school games as part of the AASE programme, and played National League for Cheltenham hockey club.
If you are coming to Cambridge as a fresher, as a postgraduate, or are a current student who is interested at playing hockey next year, then we would love to hear from you! Please fill out the form below.
If you have played regular hockey before, I would encourage coming along to pre-season, which this year will start on Wednesday the 12th September, in time for the first league match on the 22nd September. Fielding 3 competitive teams is always difficult this early on, but it would be brilliant to see all teams off to a flying start for the season, especially with promotion on our mind. I encourage you to get in touch even if you cannot make all of preseason. It is a great time to meet new people and settle into Cambridge before term kicks off in October.
If you have any queries then don’t hesitate to contact me – I look forward to seeing you in the autumn!
