BL Mixed Hockey is a long established club, which offers members a light-hearted way to keep fit and meet new people on a Sunday afternoon. While regular matches give more experienced players the thrill of competition, our relaxed approach makes it perfect for those who have never even picked up a stick before.
Many of our members have never played hockey before coming to BL.
We play hockey as a mixed team every Sunday, allowing members of other sports clubs to participate alongside their other sporting commitments. We also have a number of social events throughout the year with all our members, which a large number of our alumni also attend.
Aside from honing you into a state of physical perfection, mixed hockey is also a great way to get to know people in the older years who can offer invaluable insight into Barts life.
We look forward to seeing you!
