Ladies’ Hockey Overview

Oxford ladies' 5s in action

Oxford Hockey Club runs seven ladies’ sides, two development sides and many different junior girls’ teams. We cater for a wide range of hockey abilities and are always happy to welcome new players of any standard at any stage of the season. If you’re interested in joining, please fill in the form on the Join Us page.

League Teams

Our 1s team plays in South League Division 3A. This is a good, competitive standard of ladies’s hockey. The 1s, 2s & 3s train twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Our 2s through to 7s play in the Trysports League from Premier 1 to Division 5. We are well located for this league, which covers Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. Our main ladies’ training night for all teams is Tuesdays at Oxford Brookes, Headington. More details on training can be found here.

Get involved

Oxford Hockey Club is a friendly and sociable organisation that values all its teams. We encourage stronger players to get involved in helping to umpirecoach and manage other sides.

Junior Players and Development Team

We encourage our stronger youngsters to play in the adult sides as soon as they are ready to do so. The minimum age to play in a senior game is 13. If you are younger than this, or wish to play for one of our many junior teams, please visit the Juniors’ site.

Our two girls’ development teams are one way we bring youngsters into the senior section of the club. These teams play in a local development league. Teams are allowed a maximum of four adult players who help to coach the juniors during the games.

Summer Hockey

For those of you who can’t last the summer without hockey, we play in two fun local summer leagues – one in Oxford, one in Abingdon. These run from May to July. We enter several sides each year, and mix up all our players to create roughly equal-strength teams, so it’s a good chance to meet people from other teams for some sociable, sunny hockey.

Cup Competitions

We enter various national knock-out competitions, usually including 1st XI and 2nd XI cups; a ladies’ Masters cup (over 35s) and the County Cup tournament each September.

Indoor Hockey

A team takes part each December in a south area indoor hockey tournament – which can (but hasn’t yet, in our case!) lead to further national rounds… We also organise occasional fun club indoor hockey sessions. If any other clubs are reading this and fancy a friendly match, please get in touch!
