Beeston Hockey Club, formed by Nottingham High School students in 1907, is the largest hockey club in the Midlands with over 300 adult playing members, a junior section with over 450 children, and 70 vice-presidents. The club is also incredibly proud to host a successful disability squad, ‘Flyerz’, with over 40 members.

With 16 adult teams there is hockey for players of all abilities, including four National League sides (two ladies’ and two men’s) playing at the very top of the domestic game. Players who join Beeston will be able to develop their career whilst also playing high level hockey. The club also prides itself on being an important part of the local community and works with a wide number of clubs, schools and charities to support the growth of the sport.  

The city has two large universities providing a wealth of courses for people wanting to study a wide variety of courses whilst also playing hockey at the top level.


The Beeston Hockey Club Work • Train • Play Scheme is designed to:

  1. Allow National League level players the opportunity to continue to play at the top level of English hockey whilst also pursuing a career path that will set them up for life beyond hockey.
  2. Provide the opportunity to continue to play in any adult team in the club whilst also pursuing a career path that will set them up for life beyond hockey.
  3. Maintain the club’s long tradition of giving talented young players a pathway into international hockey whilst also setting them up with a higher education qualification or providing a great opportunity to develop invaluable experience for life after hockey.
