GKTHC is the largest sports club or society at King’s College London University with over 250 active members. We provide a total of 3 Men’s Teams, 5 Ladies Teams and a Mixed Team, who all play currently at Honor Oak Park Sports Complex in Central London, which has recently undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment. All teams compete in top-level competitions across the BUCS (British Universities + College Sport) and LUSL (London Universities Sport Leagues) competitions. Our annual Varsity and Macadam games in total attract crowds in excess of 1000 people.
Our Current Men’s 1st XI were recently promoted to BUCS Premier B South by becoming Champions of the BUCS South Eastern 1B and regularly win the UH (United Hospitals) and LUSL Cups. Several members, of our Men’s 1st XI have been involved in Representative England National Hockey Team’s at Age Group Level.
We also actively work with local charities through GKT Raising and Giving (RAG), and last year helped to raise over £2000 with events such as our Alumni Ball.
