Whether you play hockey casually or for a club at local, regional or national level, TeamBU Hockey welcomes talented male and female players who are keen to progress in their sport.

If you’re successful in your hockey trial, you’ll be taken under the wing of Bournemouth Hockey Club who TeamBU Hockey work in partnership with.

They are based at Chapel Gate – a BU Community Business 65-acre sports facility which is located just outside of Bournemouth – and make use of the two dedicated hockey pitches (one of which is a full size, sand-dressed, floodlit pitch) for all home fixtures.
