The UNSW Hockey Club is located in the eastern suburbs of Sydney and welcomes female players of all skills and levels.

Our teams play across 2 competitions - Sydney Womens Hockey League (SWHL) and Sydney Eastern Hockey Association Women's competition (SEHA Women's).

Our top 4 women's teams compete in the Sydney Womens Hockey League - Metro 1, 3, 4 and 5 Divisions. This is the highest level of women's hockey in Sydney with games played at various venues, but mainly held at the Olympic Hockey Centre in Homebush. We also have 4 teams that compete in SEHA Women's with teams competing in Premier, 2, 3 and 4 Divisions with games held across Sydney including our home turf at Daceyville.

We currently provide a player pathway up to our high performance teams. Both competitions are competitive, social and very friendly.

Turf Training

All turf training is held on our synthetic water based turf at David Phillips Oval in Daceyville, Sydney.
