As a club, we pride ourselves on our dedication to year-long hockey opportunities. Although there is no formal training during the summer months, we have a fantastic summer league that we enter around 3-5 teams into each year (this includes a mixture of mens, ladies and occasionally mixed teams).
We also have our very fun Rush Hockey sessions during late summer for small mixed 5-a-side matches which is open to all members of all ages and abilities. And finally, we also run Back 2 Hockey sessions during late summer for those thinking of returning to the sport or would simply like a refresher!
Please see below for full details on each of these fun-filled summer hockey activities. Timetables will be posted annually below when available.

Summer League presents an exciting opportunity to continue playing hockey in the offseason for all club members.
The league typically runs from May to August for around 14-15 weeks worth of matches on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. The matches will vary between a 6.30pm start and an 8.00pm start on the bottom and top pitches of Oxford Hawks Hockey Club.
The League takes place at Oxford Hawks Hockey Club which is around a 30-40 minute drive from Banbury straight down towards Oxford. Please see google maps below for directions and full details of location.
The club typically enters around 2 Ladies teams, 2 Mens teams and on occasion a mixed team, depending on level of interest.
Full details are posted on SPOND events each week during the summer league season. Make sure you sign up your interest when the events go live! Click here to access and login to SPOND.

Back 2 Hockey
We run Back 2 Hockey sessions every summer before the Hockey season starts to get the ladies players back into the swing of it.
These sessions are designed to encourage returning or brand new ladies hockey players whether they last picked up a hockey stick 6 months ago, 20 years ago, or have never held one before! But to be honest everyone is welcome even if you played hockey 5 minutes ago :D
In 2021, four sessions will run during August on each of the four Wednesdays of the month as follows:
Wednesday 4th August - 7-8pm
Wednesday 11th August - 7-8pm
Wednesday 18th August - 7-8pm
Wednesday 25th August 7-8pm
The Ladies Training Session will still be 7.30-9pm on Wednesdays and they will just overlap for 30 minutes.
At the usual BHC stomping ground - the North Oxfordshire Academy (NOA) hockey pitches. Please see below for exact location:
