The Tigers Hockey Club is one of the founding Darwin hockey clubs, and has come a long way since 1949 when we were the Works and Housing Hockey Club competing in men's hockey competition with only one team. 


1949 - Works and Housing Hockey Club (Men's)

1953 - Comworks (Women's)

1965 - Nightcliff Hockey Club (Men's, Women's)

Early 1980's - Darwin Hockey competition moved from the Gardens Oval to the Alawa Hockey Oval on Lakeside Drive. 

1986 - Darwin Hockey competition moved from Alawa to the artifical turf fields at Marrara Hockey Centre. 

1992 - University Tigers Hockey Club 

2003 - Nightcliff University Tigers Hockey Club 

2022 - Nightcliff  Tigers Hockey Club 


The name of our club may of changed over the years but the Tigers Hockey Club has a strong history of survival, weathering some tough times. One thing is for sure, the culture of social enjoyment established by the foundation sides still remains a strong part of today's club.
