Alumni & The Vann Club


CUHC is the largest and most successful sports club in Cambridge. Whilst having over 120 current playing members, you don’t need to still be a student to be a part of CUHC!

125th Alumni Dinner and Matches

The Vann Club

The Vann club is purposely for CUHC alumni. The club is named in honour of Lt. Col. The Rev Bernard William Vann who received a Cambridge hockey blue in 1910. Lt. Col. The Rev Bernard William Vann was the only ordained clergyman of the Church of England to win the Victoria Cross in the Great War as a combatant.

The Vann Club helped to fund our new name boards (pictured, they’re pretty) and kit cupboard (not pictured, full of dirty bibs).

What does the Vann Club do?

The purpose of the Vann Club is to provide information to CUHC alumni about Varsity Matches and significant updates occurring at the club.  Fear not, you won’t receive a weekly email with the training schedule!

As a member of the Vann Club, you will receive:

  • A regular newsletter, with updates about the club!
  • Invitations to the annual Alumni matches and Varsity Matches.
  • Invitations to the triennial Alumni Dinner hosted at Jesus College.
