About Sheffield University Bankers Hockey Club
Sheffield University Bankers Hockey Club is a hockey club based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, who play in the North Hockey League and the Yorkshire leagues. It is associated with the University of Sheffield men's and women's hockey clubs, and many of its players are current students or alumni of the University of Sheffield.
Sheffield University Bankers Hockey Club came from a merger of the University of Sheffield Men/Women's hockey clubs' Saturday teams and the well-established Sheffield Bankers Hockey Club in the year 1999, for the benefit of both teams.
The original Sheffield Bankers club was formed in the 1920s and originally played at Abbeydale Park. Up until just after World War II only bank employees were allowed to play. When hockey moved to astroturf in the 1980s, the club moved out to the Concord Sports Centre, before moving to the University of Sheffield facilities at Goodwin Sports Centre. With university development on the pitch at Goodwin, we have now moved across the city to Norton.
