About Our Club

The Hockey Club has two men’s and two women’s teams competing in the British Universities and College Sports (BUCS) leagues on a Wednesday. The club has also recently introduced a third team for each of men’s and women’s, which currently are not in the BUCS league but we are hopeful to progress to this level in the future. The club also competes in a recreational league on a Friday night.

Partnership with Watsonians Hockey Club

The Hockey Club has a partnership with Watsonians Hockey Club which gives Heriot-Watt students further opportunities to play for an Edinburgh side at both national and regional level. Watsonians is a strong hockey club, with five men’s teams, training on a Monday and Thursday, and five women’s teams; training on a Tuesday and a Thursday. If you are interested in joining Watsonians, please contact any of the committee members, or email the club.

HWUHC are relishing the challenge of a new season, and are striving for promotions all round. If you are a new or advanced player or anywhere in between, please contact us using any of the details below – everyone is welcome!
