Preseason will run from late August until the start of Fresher's Week, in September. If you are new to Bristol and want to get involved in the UBHC please get in touch - any prospective players, no matter what level will be welcome! If you see yourself playing in the 1s or 2s especially, you should definitely consider coming for at least some of preseason.
Please join our fresher's Facebook groups for all the up-to-date information on preseason schedules, the welcome fair and any other events in the run up to the coming season and during it.

During preseason both clubs train and play regular matches in the day and organise mixed social events most evenings ranging from 'Fresher Come Dine With Me' (Rhys Davies, 2014) to full-blown socials. It’s a great way to get your hockey back up to speed, get to know people in the club, enjoy the thriving social scene, see and learn a bit more about Bristol, and of course, get involved in the UBMHC/UBLHC before everyone else arrives. It's a really useful head start into the university experience and is guaranteed to be lots of fun (just ask Tom Carter). Players will be looked after and be provided with accommodation by the members of each club.
To reiterate, hockey players of all abilities are welcome and encouraged to attend so if you’re interested please contact the relevant club captain:
Tom Davies (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the men.
Catherine Allan (email@example.com) for the ladies.
We really look forward to hearing from you, and good luck with results!
Tom and Catherine
