About the Club

The UBMHC and UBLHC

The UBHC consists of the separate Ladies' (UBLHC) and Men's Club (UBMHC). Both clubs' facilities are located at Coombe Dingle Sports Complex. More information about the location can be found on our google plus page here. Coombe Dingle is about 2 miles from the main University precinct and less than a mile from the Stoke Bishop Halls, so easy walking distance for most freshers. We have two Astros, one hybrid and one sand dressed pitch.

Training and matches

The Men and Women train separately, with each team having two training sessions a week. BUCS matches are played on Wednesday afternoons and league matches on Saturdays. Training times and match schedules will be added before the start of the season.

Off the pitch

The UBHC offers a vibrant social scene and is a great way to meet a wide variety of different people. The Men's and Ladies' clubs hold socials every Wednesday which start separately before uniting at Bar 48, and ending in Gravity where we join all the other sports clubs. Socials are a way of meeting some of the greatest friends of your university career and are guaranteed to leave you with lifelong memories. Two social secretaries are democratically elected each year from each club to run socials and make sure everyone is having the right amount of fun.

We hold a number of other social events during the year, including fancy dress, Team Curry nights, the black-tie Christmas, End of Season Dinners and many more.

Alumni Weekend is held after Easter, more information can be found here. We hold an annual Tour over Easter which is always great fun - 2015 saw a visit to Amsterdam.
