The Great Britain women's national field hockey team represents Great Britain in international field hockey tournaments such as the Summer Olympics.

In other competitions, including the Hockey World Cup, the Commonwealth Games and some editions of the Hockey Champions Trophy, the four home nations compete in their own right: England, Ireland (includes both the Republic and Northern Ireland), Scotland and Wales.[1][2]

The team has won gold once and bronze twice at the Summer Olympics, and silver once in the Champions Trophy.
