Welcome to Edinburgh University Women’s Hockey Club!
Edinburgh University Women’s Hockey Club (EUWHC) is the largest women’s club in the country. The Club boasts 9 outdoor teams and an indoor team training at the Peffermill playing fields in the sight of Edinburgh’s iconic Arthur’s Seat.
As a Club, we are passionate about promoting a high standard of hockey for all abilities, aiming to make hockey fun, exciting, and sociable for all our members. Through providing a weekly coaching programme and all teams playing in competitive leagues, we aim to grow our players talent through their time at University and help them make some of the memories they will treasure long after graduation.
EUWHC is also a high performance club with our 1st XI playing in the EuroHockey Club Championships this coming season after gaining the number one qualifying spot and securing their title as ‘Scottish Champions’. Our 2nd XI are hot on their heels winning the ‘Scottish Championship League’. Both the 3rd and 4th XI were Cup and Plate finalists this year in their respective competitions. In addition to the Scottish leagues, EUWHC has four teams competing in the British University and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues, with our 1st XI taking home the trophy for the third year in a row. These performance teams spearhead the club with the 4th to 9th team developing their skills and participating and dominating local leagues.
EUWHC is a friendly, inclusive, and respectful club with members that uphold the sporting ideals of passion, determination, and ultimate respect for the game and its participants. We give 100% on the pitch, train and play hard for each other; support our fellow Club members; and finally, smile, shake hands, and get back to the library to keep up with our studies.
Whether you’re competitive or just plain crazy, EUWHC is the place to be. We can dominate the leagues and we can dominate the dancefloor but above all – we do it in style!
