Men's Hockey Club

The Glasgow University Men's Hockey Club (GUMHC) is renowned for its competitiveness, camaraderie and social scene.


We currently have three competitive teams competing twice a week.

Our 1st XI is currently playing in the top BUCS league in Scotland and pushing for promotion to the Scottish Hockey premiership. This team is also lucky to have a brilliant head coach who has competed for some of the top sides in Scotland at both university and club levels.

Our 2nd XI is also a very competitive side competing in the BUCS Scottish Tier 2 league and Scottish Hockey's regional league. Our 3rd XI also plays twice a week in BUCS Scottish Tier 4 and the local West District League 1.

The club also offers dedicated training to a selected group of performance athletes. This includes an additional pitch session led by our head coach and dedicated gym sessions led by a specialised strength and conditioning coach. If you are aspiring to become a top athlete in Scotland then the GUMHC is the place for you.

The club has recently formed a 4th XI; though this team are currently not competing, it gives those new to their hockey career a great place to start. Led by two student coaches, sessions are structured and fun which is a great way to start hockey.

Whether you are an international, someone who has played hockey for a few years, or a complete beginner, the GUMHC is a place for everyone.


Our trainings are held on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday evenings at Garscube Sports Complex. Travel to training is provided.

Welfare & Inclusivity

At GUMHC we continuously strive to create and maintain a wholly inclusive environment for all members. Therefore, we hope to ensure any barriers to participation – either real or perceived – are removed. This is of particular importance for groups currently underrepresented within our club and our sport. As such, our current practices and future plans ensure we always remain open to all.

Throughout our club history we have undertaken various events to help towards a wide range of charitable causes. Some prime examples are our dedication to the Movember campaign for men's health and suicide prevention, Stonewall's Rainbow Lace movement for LGBTQ+ visibility within sport, and our annual Festive Foodbank Shop.

The club prides itself on our commitment to these local and national charities, and we encourage members to support any opportunities for action.


Along with a diverse range of hockey offered at the club, we make sure we take the time to relax and socialise with friends off the pitch, often with the Women's Club. This is a great way to make new friends for life.

We have multiple socials throughout the year and a highlight of this is the annual Club Dinner, held at the end of the year. This recognises a year of hard work from all our members.
