Hockey Club (Field)

Hockey Club Endowment Fund

The club is on the cusp of establishing the Hockey Club Endowment Fund, which will ensure they have a stable financial base to operate in perpetuity. Thanks to the generosity of alumni, OUHC has already secured over £100,000 in income and pledges that are due to be realised in full over the next five years. They now need to raise a further £45,000 by the end of the current academic year so that they can start investing the endowment and begin to benefit from its returns as soon as possible. The support of all alumni and friends is needed now more than ever to pave the way for the club’s successful future.

About OUHC

OUHC seeks to provide high quality coaching and performance for its 130 members at an affordable rate, while also maintaining its success at the highest level. The club now has four men’s teams and four women’s teams. The Women’s Blues are competing in the BUCS Premier League and National league and the Men’s Blues are making a strong push for both, while being currently unbeaten in their BUCS league. As the club looks to increasingly professionalise, there is a need for more extensive employed coaching - extra income will allow the club to reach its goals without increasing an already heavy financial burden on players.
