Coventry Phoenix is the name of Coventry's only female ice hockey team. The team was established in 2003, and currently competes in Division One (North) of the British Women's Leagues.[1] They play out of the SkyDome Arena, in city centre Coventry, the same venue as the Coventry Blaze men's professional ice hockey teams.


Phoenix finished 5th in the Division 1 North league in 2008, and were the only team to not lose to the ultimate league winners of the league, Nottingham.

Coventry competed in a total of four tournaments, twice in Milton Keynes, finishing 6th of 8 teams in 2004 and runner-up in 2005. In addition to this they have played twice outside of Great Britain, both times at a tournament in Tallinn, Estonia hosted by the HC Dreamland Queens. In 2004 they finished 4th of 5 teams, and in 2005 finished 7th out of 8 teams.
