Welcome to Bournemouth Hockey Club Ladies section

We have five ladies teams competing in the West Clubs Women’s Hockey League ranging from Premier Division 2 down to Channel Division 2.

All our ladies teams train on a Tuesday night from 19:45 to 21:30 (meet in the clubhouse at 19:30).

*Please note during August we have pre-season training on Tuesday evenings from 7:30pm on pitch 1 for our ladies 1s & 2s, and from 8-9pm on pitch 2 for our main club session (L3-5 squads).*

We have access to two pitches at our training ground at Chapel Gate so there is plenty of opportunity to mingle with other teams and focus on your own development.

We are delighted to have Rose O’Reilly as our new ladies club captain for the 2018-2019 season. Head performance coach is Adam Tapper. We are also very lucky to have dedicated coaches for each of our squads –

  • For our 1st XI we have Adam Tapper & Gavin Rusling
  • Tapper together with Hems look after the 2nd XI squad (Ladies 3s)
  • Clare Hicks is responsible for our 3rd XI (Ladies 2s)
  • Club night, involving our 4th & 5th squads, train under the guidance of Simon Goldsack.

If you’re interested in joining the club or would like to come and meet some of the players/see what it’s all about, then in the first instance please email and we’ll direct you to the most appropriate contact.

*In order to introduce you to the right team captain expect to be asked

  • How long have you played hockey?
  • Which team/s have you played for?
  • What standard of hockey have you played?

 Ladies 1s

Bournemouth Ladies 1st XI for the 2017/18 season play in Premier Division 2B.

After many successful years in Premier Division 1, the 2016/17 season was tough for our ladies 1st team. Consequently they got relegated at the end of the year, and will look forward to bouncing back in 2017/18 as they take on new clubs in Prem 2B.

Ladies 3s

Our ladies 3s will play in Premier Division 2A for the 2017/18 season.

After two phenomenal years of back to back promotions from Channel Division 1, and then East Division last year, our ladies 3rd XI has gone from strength to strength. With an average age of 40+, the team has found a newfound love of the game and has been unafraid of its younger rivals in competitor clubs, showing that team spirit, determination and experience can bring rewards.

*Due to the unfortunate relegation of our Ladies 2nd XI in 2016/17 from Prem 2A to East Division, for the 2017/18 season our usual Ladies 2s players will play under the Ladies 3s team name and vice versa*

East Division winners 2016/17 & Channel 1 Division winners 2015/16

Ladies 2s

Bournemouth Ladies 2s for the 2017/18 season will be playing in East Division.

This team successfully got promoted from East Division in 2015/16 to play in Premier Division 2A the following year. Whilst unsuccessful in their first appearance in Prem 2 last year our Ladies 2s (by league name only) will be playing in East Division once again.

*Our usual ladies 2nd XI squad for the 2017/18 season will be playing under the Ladies 3s name in Premier Division 2A, whilst last year’s Ladies 3s will become Ladies 2s for one season only*

East Division league winners 2015/16 season

Ladies 4s

Our ladies 4s will continue to play in Channel Division 1 for the 2017/18 season.

Our 4th team have had mixed fortunes in recent years as the team dynamic changes frequently. Very much one of our development teams for those looking to progress in a competitive hockey environment but also maintaining a fun and free-spirited experience.

Our 4th XI is a fantastic team for bringing talented juniors into the ladies game, and for adult members to get a taste of challenging match play.

Ladies 5s

Our ladies 5s play in Channel Division 2.

Last but by no means least meet our ladies 5th XI, the bedrock of our club, and a team which boasts the oldest and youngers players in our adult squads. Whilst many of these ladies have played hockey for over 30 years, their enjoyment for the game, team spirit and friendship is as strong as ever.

If you’re looking to pick up a hockey stick for the first time or want to continue playing even when your body is telling you otherwise, then look no further than our wonderful ladies 5th XI. With matches available every weekend and coaching mid-week, you’ll be sure to feel right at home with this friendly bunch.
