With 2 men’s and 2 women’s teams, HCHC are potentially the biggest overall club in Hatfield. If you have played hockey for years or are just interested in giving it a go, HCHC is for you. We train separately every week and have matches on the pitches at Maiden Castle, but come together regularly for joint socials and informal fines nights. Our teams are hugely successful, and regularly win the college league and cup competitions. We also support those Hatfielders who go on to play for the equally successful DUHC.
For more information about the club or the men’s teams, contact Club President, George Liebscher.

The main college site being a minute away from the River Wear makes rowing an ideal sport for Hatfield! Our boathouse is well equipped with ergs and a range of boats, meaning that if you want to row in Hatfield then you have all the facilities you need to be the best. An extensive program is run early on for those who have never rowed before Durham, culminating in the Durham-wide Novice Cup. This then feeds in to senior male and female squads who row through the year and compete at various regattas and other competitions. HCBC are also extremely grateful for the support of the Hatfield Trust, who provide support in keeping our boats at the highest possible standard – without their backing we would not be able to row as well as we do.
Many people play pool recreationally, but HCPC is there for those who want to compete against other college teams in weekly league fixtures and the annual cup competition. The pool table in our bar is free, meaning training is cheap and very sociable! We currently have 3 teams, each made up of 6 people, however we are always looking for extra people we can call on and any others who might be interested in forming new teams.
For more information contact Club President, Ian Duff.
HCDC may be one of the newest clubs in the JCR, but it is certainly one of the most active. 2 teams play regularly against other colleges, one made up of those who have played before and the other of those who are enthusiastic and improving.

If you are interested in competing, please contact founding member and President, Thomas Robson.

Having only been running for a year Hatfield Mixed Lacrosse is one of the newest clubs, yet has still had a lot of success. After winning the league and being promoted to the Premiership last year, HCLC is hoping to pick up where it left off and continue the success this year. A mix of DU players and total beginners together form a social group which really does cater for all abilities.
In the spring and summer months, Hatfield tennis comes into it’s own, whether recreationally amongst friends, or as part of HCTC. The tennis court is available to book via the sign up sheet in the porters’ lodge, and we are fortunate to have such a facility after the investment of the JCR and the Hatfield Trust some years ago.
If you want to get involved in tennis in a more structure and competitive way, please get in touch with Sam Zijderveld – who will be able to tell you more about HCTC and you can engage with it.
