Gophers are the Medics Mixed Hockey Club, which is perfect whether you have played hockey for a club or have never picked up a stick before. We train twice a week and play in the NAMS league, competing against other medical teams from all around the country. We also play in intramural matches against other teams within the university most weeks.
Gophers are an extremely social club, with socials every weekend; highlights from last year include the three-legged race, themed events, pub golf and 'Gopher's do Love Island'. Away weekends are a highlight of everyone’s year, competing in tournaments all around the country. These include camping weekends, varsity where every medic sport team travels to Birmingham and compete for the treasured Varsity Cup. We also go on tour every year, which was in Madrid last year- disclaimer, hockey may or may not be played during tour. At the beginning of the year we also host TITS, a hockey tournament where hundreds of medic hockey players come for a fun weekend finished with some hockey.
Gophers are a friendly club that will allow you to make friends from every year. We are extremely excited to welcome all new members next year and can't wait for the year to begin.
This year we have many exciting events to look forward too. These include Brighton Varsity, TITS, NAMS weekend away, Birmingham Varsity, an old boys weekend, MK camping tournament, weekends away, tour and much much more.
Membership will be roughly £35. However, this will enable certain events throughout the year to be subsidized; including kit, tour and Christmas meal.
Training takes place on a Wednesday 8:30-10:00 and Friday 8:00-10:00. Come along and give it a go, everyone is welcome!
