Introducing Great Britain’s first ever Women’s Bandy Team!
But what is Bandy?
In short, Bandy is a cross between ice hockey, field hockey and football. It's heritage lies right here in the UK, in the Fenlands, Cambridgeshire.
The sport was unfortunately stopped after World War 1 when players who were also servicemen sadly lost their lives. At the same time, new ice rinks were being built and the game of ice hockey took over, meaning Bandy stopped being played.
Not only are we are bringing Bandy back to life, but we are making history as the first ever British Women's team.
The exciting future...
In March 2022, we will be making our debut in the Women's Bandy World Championships in Stockholm, Sweden.
This is an amazing opportunity! We will play against women all over the world including Estonia, Ukraine, Switzerland, Holland and the USA.
- The tournament will be hosted in the newly built state of the art Gubbängens Bandy Arena
- This is the first time in history the Women’s Bandy World Championships will be played indoors
- 2000 spectator capacity
- All matches will be broadcasted to allow fans all over the world to follow their teams

Why we need your support
We are a non-profit organisation, run solely by individuals who simply love the sport & want to see Bandy reignited in the UK for everyone.
The Women's team currently has no funds to allow us to continue on-ice training ahead of the World Champs. These sessions cost £165 per hour.
We are reaching out for your support, no matter how big or small, to help us raise funds for training so that we can be the fittest & strongest team in the World Championships in March, and maybe even allowing us to bring home some silverware!
We can't wait to share this exciting and historic journey with you all!
