Our Team

Meet some of our committe and club members!

Cleo

Club President

We are safe space for you to be you. You may not realise that you are a lesbian, gay or bi-sexual or even if you are straight. it doesn’t matter you are welcome here to be who you are.

Tom

Club member

People should join because we are a thriving, growing, successful club. We’re very active in London, we travel regularly, and we can teach anyone to play hockey.

Steven

Mixed Team Captain

I know many LGBTQ+ folk struggle with some of the traditional culture that surrounds sport and breaking down that culture is something the Royals excel at.

Heidrun

Club member

The atmosphere, the support, and positivity – within the club and towards other teams. It’s like a big big family!

Our philosophy

Inclusive

We are safe space for you to be you. You may not realise that you are a lesbian, gay or bi-sexual or even if you are straight. It doesn’t matter you are welcome here to be who you are. Sometimes we feel we have to pretend to be a particular way because that is all you have known. You don’t need to do that with us, all we ask is you be you and respect that everyone is slightly quirky and weird in their own little way. That is life, embrace it.

Some words from our members!

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our club members say:

Why should people join: Because it is a community, a circle of friends, a sports team, a celebration of queer life, and hockey, all rolled in one. Tough act to follow!

Daniela

Sport should never turn people off or make people feel unworthy and with the Royals
you are valued both on the pitch and in the pub (or the Brewers).
Whilst we are an LGBT club we take anyone and make them feel welcome, which is something we all take pride in.

Ben

There is an atmosphere that is more than just community, the Royals feels like hanging out with goods mates, and taking away what you want from that experience; expanding your social circle, learning a skill or just having a workout with mates.
