Welcome to the Home of Oxbridge Hockey Alumni

The 1890 Club was founded in 2000, to establish stronger links between the old boys and girls and the current hockey clubs, to support the social side of the university hockey clubs and to provide a social network for 1890 members.

Members of the 1890 Club are invited to hockey matches and social events with old team mates (and former opposition!) and stay informed of news on the current university teams. At the same time members' subscriptions help provide much needed support for the current hockey clubs.

Hockey matches: the 1890 Club organises more than 10 games in the year.

• 1890 Oxford v Cambridge (Men’s and Women’s, on the day of the Varsity match, Men’s, Women’s and mixed games in London, March and June);
• 1890 v the Travellers (Men’s and Vets, June);
• 1890 v current Blues (Men’s, Women’s, Oxford and Cambridge, June)

Social Events: there are a number of social gatherings, which allow you to stay in touch with team mates, and relive those infamous nights out with the hockey club. Social events include:

• pre Varsity match drinks night;
• 5 yearly 1890 dinner.

The 1890 Club sends out a newsletter periodically with information on the Varsity matches, the clubs’ performance and news on 1890 members. Click here for the newsletter archive.

Membership costs £10 a year. Your subscription is used both to fund club events and to provide well-deserved post-Varsity celebratory drinks for the OUHC and CUHC players.
