The Hull Thunder was a British ice hockey club from Kingston upon Hull, England. Formed in 1999,[1] it competed in the now defunct British National League playing its home games at Humberside Ice Arena (since renamed the Hull Arena).

The club was previously known as Humberside Seahawks (1988-1992), Humberside Hawks (1993-1995) and Kingston Hawks (1996-1998).

The team ran into financial problems in 2001 and was bought. After a promising pre-season, the team under the new owners again ran into financial trouble, resulting in it finishing the 2002 season without any imports.

A new team was formed in 2003 called Hull Stingrays, which is, as of 2012, a member of the Elite Ice Hockey League.
