Proudest Sporting Moment: 
Defeating a full John‘s team with just nine people.

Joining the College Hockey Team is a truly great way to improve your hockey skills and overall fitness while not having to invest a lot of time - which is probably the most precious resource here at Cambridge. Another major advantage of college sports is that players from all levels are encouraged to join - we are just as happy for someone who picked up the hockey stick for the first time as we are for someone who has a lot of experience.

In Michaelmas Term there will be league matches every Sunday where we play 7-a-side Hockey against other college teams. These games are usually not too serious and hence give everybody the opportunity to find their place in the squad and learn to play together. Once Lent Term comes around there is going to be a big single-elimination tournament (named ‘Cuppers’) where all college teams participate. There have been some hard-fought games in the past and there will surely be some this season as we aim for the trophy like we - successfully - did the last years. So if you are down to prove to the other colleges (especially our good friends at John’s) that Trinity is not only superior in the brains department but also on the Hockey pitch, then come join us. After all, it is certainly going to be a lot of fun and a great way to make friends and create unforgettable experiences. 

There will be one training session before our first match where everyone still undecided can drop in and experience how much fun Hockey can be. If you do not have a Hockey stick yet, don’t worry, just drop me a message and we can organise one for you. We are really looking forward to meeting you at Chaplain’s Squash, and do not hesitate to drop me an email (!
