Being such a tight and sociable club, OBUHC has always maintained great relationships with past members. Throughout the last decade, alumni matches have been taking place throughout each year and have always been a tremendous success.

From this initial success, Michael Retallack formed London Brookes Hockey club with the help of other Alumni. The club, founded in 2009, is made up of Old Boys and since its formation has been a great success thanks to the hard work of Michael and his fellow players. The club is made up of a large range of graduates from way back in 2006 to the present day and they welcome keen players every year.

It was in 2014 when OBUHC first set up the annual Alumni event involving a huge array of Old Boys and Girls. Usually held in April/May, Cheney Lane sees 5 teams duke it out for the annual bragging rights followed by a trip down to our favourite Cowley Road! A general Old Boys team and the current OBUHC leavers join LBHC in a triangular round-robin and then Old Girls face off against the current OBUHC Ladies. The event has been immensely popular since it started and is great chance to socialise with other generations of Brookes graduates! The day is held in aid of Helen and Douglas hospice each year – a great cause and another reason the boys and girls to get together each spring.

If there are any recent graduates looking to play enjoyable but competitive hockey, please do get in touch with LBHC. Likewise for girls, there are rumours of a London Brookes Ladies Hockey Club being formed so watch this space for more news and details!
