Ice Hockey Club
The Nottingham Universities Mavericks is one of the largest and most successful British university ice hockey clubs.
We offer training and games to players of every ability and have five active teams across all levels of British University ice hockey for the first time this season. Our A, B, C and D teams are entered into BUIHA league cup competition and we also have a development team for beginners. So whether you’ve always wanted to learn how to play, have come up through the junior ranks or played for a team over-seas, we have a place waiting just for you.
We are a mixed Universities team, welcoming students from across Nottingham and the East Midlands, but split for one game every year during the University of Nottingham vs Nottingham Trent varsity. This match is one of the largest ice hockey matches across the UK, selling out the 7000 seats in the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham and being broadcast live by the Universities student media. The biggest varsity match outside of North America is always eagerly anticipated, with tickets selling out in days so be sure to stay in touch so you know when tickets go on sale. You may even find yourself being called up to don the University jersey during your time at the club.
Our five teams train Monday or Thursday evening depending on ice availability - the schedule is updated regularly on facebook.
Membership is £125 to University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent students including your team jersey. For students from other Universities including De Montfort University, the University of Derby, the University of Leicester and the University of Loughborough, membership is £135 including your team jersey. This also covers your joining fee to the club and all the insurance you need to get you on the ice.
No matter what your ability we guarantee everyone will be given the opportunity to participate in friendly and competitive ice hockey matches. We play in league and challenge games throughout the season, both home and away, and we welcome spectators. So come on down and support the University ice hockey team (for free!).
