Hockey Club Alumni
The University has a very proud hockey heritage, and in 2016/17 were ranked in the Top 3 of UK universities for both Men's and Women's Hockey. More recently we have also become renowned as a major force in club hockey, with our Men's 1st XI competing in the National League Conference West and the University Ladies Hockey Club has joined forces with local club ISCA to form a ISCA University side who also compete in the National League Conference West.
Men's and Women's Hockey are both focus sports and part of the High Performance Programme, giving 1st team players access to specialist support services. The Sports Scholarship programme attracts Junior Internationals to the University and as a result Exeter has a growing number of Hockey Alumni in senior international and GB squads.
Hockey Club alumni Tim Ireland, Stuart Moyce (both Class of 1984), Alex Lawton (Class of 1995) and Kieran Payne (Class of 2010) organise an annual Alumni Christmas Lunch in London which is well attended by Club alumni from many decades. The event takes place on the Thursday before Christmas Day. For more information about these events or if you would like to become involved in developing Alumni activity please contact us.

Take Your Seat
In 2013 as part of the £8.5m redevelopment of sports facilities on our Streatham Campus, a spectator grandstand was opened overlooking the Olympic-standard water based hockey pitch. 84 covered seats, situated above eight new changing rooms, provide a perfect location from which to watch the University’s hockey teams in action. Alumni can personalise one of these seats in return for a donation of £240. An individual plaque on each seat shows the donor’s name and an optional message of support. Many seats have already been snapped up by alumni through this initiative. We have also honoured the achievements of six Exeter alumni to have competed in hockey at an Olympic Games by bestowing seats in their names.
If you would like to sponsor a seat please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
