Oxford University Hockey is one of the largest sports clubs in oxford with 3 full women’s teams and 4 men’s teams being fielded each week. For future reference, the teams each have collective names which are used within the club;
|1||Men’s Blues (MBs)||Women’s Blues (WBs)|
|2||Occasionals (Os)||Radicals (Rads)|
|3||Infrequents (Is)||Mavericks (Mavs)|
If you are ever at a loss about who the members of OUHC are, you will probably see most of them in kit, or some stupid costume, in the VIP section of Park End before they make the arduous move to hockey corner (EDM floor), VK in hand. Though they may look scary – as an OxLove wrote; ‘firm, steely glint in their eye or the impression of barely concealed competitive aggression’ – the university hockey players are a lovely bunch, although their chat is questionable.
