The University of Kent Women’s Hockey club seek sponsorship for new equipment to ensure all players are safe when playing.

 

The University of Kent Women’s Hockey club are an incredibly social group of people, comprising of around 85 members of varying hockey abilities. We currently have four teams that compete in varying BUCS leagues throughout the South East of England. Additionally, we have a Saturday team playing in a local league in Kent, playing against 11 other clubs within the area. We are one of the largest clubs on campus with a large social presence with many other clubs and societies across campus. We are looking for a sponsor to help us to progress further to greater successes. We are in need of new goalkeeping equipment to ensure the safety of our players as well as high level coaching to ensure our teams are working to their limits. We would like to work with a brand who share our desire to achieve and will help us to do so. We would like to offer a logo on our home and away kit, as well as all leisure wear that is seen throughout our campus as well as against varying hockey teams and supporters throughout the South East of England. We can also offer various social media promotions on a weekly basis that will not only reach our club, clubs around campus, but other universities and members of the public.

 

We are the largest Women’s club on campus. We get together every Wednesday evening for our socials.. (Did someone say VENSDAY?!) Our socials allow every member of women’s hockey to get together and socialise. We are a very close and very friendly group of people!!!

The University of Kent Women’s Hockey Club fields 5 teams. 4 teams who participate in BUCs league and 1 Saturday team who partakes in the Kent division. The Saturday team allows players of all our teams to play together and is a great learning experience!!

We are one of the biggest ladies clubs at UKC! Training on Monday and Tuesdays, BUCs Games and Saturday League!

As well as promoting our sponsors on our social media platform that reaches around one and a half thousand people.

We are hoping for cash investments to allow us to buy better equipment and new goalkeeping equipment to ensure our players remain safe and to allow us to provide a high level of coaching to all our members to help push our teams towards promotion.

Other Info

We are a dedicated club who try to represent our sponsors to the best of our best ability. As a student led society, we have to rely on the help of sponsors to allow us to continue our growth and allow us to have access to the highest level of coaching, transport to games, and essential equipment we need to ensure our club can progress and ensure our players are always safe. We would love to build a new partnership for the next academic year, and hopefully, for years to come. We are happy to communicate further and accommodate any additional requests.
