Beeston Hockey Club is a field hockey club based in Beeston, England. The club was founded in 1907, and plays its home games at the Nottingham Hockey Centre in Nottingham. Beeston is nicknamed the Bees.[1]

The men's 1st XI plays in the Men's England Hockey League and the ladies 1st XI in the Women's England Hockey League.[2] The majority of the other teams compete in the Midlands League. The large club fields six men's sides, seven ladies sides and various junior sides.

The men's 1st XI won its first major trophy in 2008, defeating Bowdon 4-3 in the Men's National Cup.[3] The men's team won its first National League Premier Division title in 2010/11, and went on to win it again in 2012/13 and 2013/14.[4] The men's 1st XI have also competed in the Euro Hockey League.[5]

Beeston HC twinned with HC Rotterdam on 1 February 2017.

In 2020 Beeston secured an historic cup double by winning the both the men's cup and women's cup competitions in the same season. On 5 September the women's team won their COVID-19 delayed final beating the defending champions Clifton Robinsons 3-2 in the final. At the same time the men won their delayed semi final on penalties and one week later on 12 September defeated Fareham 9-1 in the final.[6][7]
