Women

Ladies

Ben Rhydding Ladies Hockey Club has been running for well over a hundred years. Starting with one small team it has grown to be one of the largest hockey clubs in the North of England. It runs five women’s sides, a Veterans side and provides coaching for over 100 hundred girls within our colts section. We have top quality coaches working with both our seniors and juniors.

Only 15 miles from Leeds and only 10 miles from Headingley, we are also an attractive proposition for any students coming to Leeds to study, who want to play hockey at all levels.

We always welcome new members to the club.  Contact Issy MacDonald (Club Coach) ismaymacdonald@hotmail.com if you would like to join any of the women’s teams.
