The Hockey Museum already has a wealth of information about the history and heritage of the sport in its archives and collections, but what really brings this story to life is the development and enhancement of the records, images and objects that can be achieved by further research. The Hockey Museum is keen to encourage people to use our archives and collections as a basis of their research; this might be developing a family genealogy, writing a club history or undertaking a piece of academic research. We have undertaken collaborative work with the University of Wolverhampton and with De Montfort University and have had a number of undergraduate students visiting us to use the Library. More information on four of these studies can be found by clicking on the following links:

As well as the recognised academic research projects, a number of the volunteers at The Hockey Museum are already undertaking some fascinating research projects of their own. These studies have already given us a better understanding of a number of aspects of our sport's history and tell some fascinating stories of the people involved. To find out more about these topics please click on the following links or the appropriate sections to the left of this article:

We have identified a number of other interesting subjects and topics that need to be developed to help create an archive. We can only move as fast as our volunteer force enables us to do. These topics are listed below:

  • Biographies & Obituaries
  • Centenary Club
  • Equipment
  • FIH
  • Hockey Association
  • Hockey Writers’ Club
  • Homes of English Hockey
  • Indoor Hockey (Men)
  • Indoor Hockey (Women)
  • Olympic Hockey
  • Masters Hockey (Veterans)
  • Mixed Hockey
  • Photographs
  • Schools Hockey Histories (Boys)
  • Schools Hockey Histories (Girls)
  • Ties
  • Trophies And Presentations
  • Umpiring And Rules
  • Works Clubs
  • World Cup Hockey

If you have any information or artefacts related to these topic areas, are interested in getting involved in these or any other research, please email The Hockey Museum Curator using our online form.
