OUHC seeks to provide high quality coaching and performance for its 100 members at an affordable rate, while also maintaining its success at the highest level. The club celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2015, and now has four male and three female sides, each competing twice every week. As the club looks to increasingly professionalise, there is a need for more extensive employed coaching and evening training sessions - extra income will allow the club to reach its goals without increasing an already heavy financial burden on players.

The club also wishes to create an endowment fund, managed by the University. In order to set up an endowment, OUHC needs to raise £100,000. This would provide an annual return to the club of at least 4%, safeguarding OUHC for future generations. If you would like your gift to go towards the endowment, please alert Jamie Dumas in the Development Office at sport@devoff.ox.ac.uk or on 01865 611532.

Regular gifts will go towards subsidising the day to day running of the club:

  • £15 would pay the expenses of the Blues coach for a game or training session
  • £50 would pay for a 2 hour evening training session for 25 players
  • £125 would cover a member’s annual subs
  • £1000 would pay for a 2nd team coach for a term
