University of Exeter Hockey Club is a field hockey club based in Exeter, Devon, England. The club plays its matches at the Sports Park on the University of Exeter's Streatham Campus. There is a water based pitch and a sand based pitch.

In 2009, The Men's 1st XI gained promotion to the English Hockey League Men's Premier Division. The club has failed to retain its position in the flagship league for more than one season, and is currently considered the "yo-yo" team of the Men's English Hockey League. As such, for the 2012/13 season the Men's 1st XI will again play in the England Hockey League Men's Conference West.

The club fields six men's teams and four women's teams which compete in BUCS leagues on Wednesdays and in local and National leagues at the weekend.


The club has contributed players to international sides, including:

  • Jimmy Wallis (England and Great Britain)
  • Veryan Pappin (Scotland and Great Britain)
  • Mark Lewis (Wales and Great Britain)
  • Nick Brothers (England and Great Britain)
  • Ian Haley (South Africa)
