UCLan Sports Arena hosts two adjacent, full size floodlit hockey pitches. In recent years the Arena has worked hard to improve the standard of the hockey facilities and had both pitches re-surfaced and upgraded in summer 2010. One pitch is a sand dressed pitch and one a sand filled pitch.
As well as being the home of UCLan Hockey Club, the Arena runs various leagues, tournaments and umpiring courses throughout the year. Situated just 10 minutes off the M6 motorway, it is ideally located for local and regional tournaments.
Since opening in 2000, UCLan Sports Arena has been the home venue for two of Preston’s local hockey clubs, Springfields and Garstang Ladies. In 2008 Fulwood Ladies HC started to use the Arena for their home matches.
Springfields HC has four ladies, two men’s and junior teams. The Arena hosts all of their home fixtures.

Garstang Ladies HC has three ladies teams and a junior section. The club has grown considerably over the last 10 years. For more information visit Garstang HC website.
