Join the Alumni Hockey Club

KCLA Hockey

Graduating from King’s does not mean the end to your hockey playing years.

The Alumni Hockey Club is going strong. 7 teams (4 men’s and 3 ladies’) meet every week to train at Honor Oak Park between August and April and to compete against other clubs in London, Kent and Sussex Leagues. We want you to get involved

The Club has now successfully completed its 15th season, one which saw a number of fantastic landmarks on and off the pitch. Away from the hockey itself, the long-awaited and eagerly anticipated new club house at Honor Oak Park was opened, making the ground a truly fantastic facility, and providing a platform to host a range of brilliant events including the men's London Hockey League finals (hosted by the Alumni Hockey Club).

On the pitch, the Club fielded four men's and three ladies' sides. Team of the Year, the ladies' 1st XI, led the charge winning their league and promotion, remaining unbeaten until the very last game of the campaign. The men's 1st XI won promotion from their regional league and with a number of players coming back into the fold next season, they harbour realistic ambitions of moving on again. The ladies' 2nd XI also won their league and promotion for the second season running, and the men's 4th XI staged a remarkable run of results to win promotion and also the league cup final at Honor Oak Park. The other three teams maintained mid-table respectability and each have a great platform to build from.

In time we aim to have at least one more men's and one more ladies' team, and there is without doubt a fantastic opportunity to build on the excellent group of friendly, sociable, competitive and ultimately committed members already involved, setting the standard for sporting endeavour right across the King's community.

With tournaments being staged over the summer, participation in the England Hockey 'Back to Hockey' campaign, plans to appoint a Head of Hockey to oversee College and Alumni hockey jointly, alumni hockey is in excellent shape and well-positioned to drive and support the burgeoning success of hockey at King's.

If you're already part of our alumni sport community, why not get your old team mates together and come back to College to pit yourself against current students in the KCLA Games.
