The 1982–83 British Hockey League season was the inaugural season of the British Hockey League.

Fifteen teams from the Northern League, English League North and the English League South took part.

LeagueEdit

The league was divided into three sections of five teams. Teams in section B played every team once at home and once away while teams in section A and C played teams in their own section four times and the teams from section B twice. Teams in section A did not play teams from section C. This meant that while section A and C teams played 26 games, section B teams played 28. Murrayfield, Glasgow, Durham, Crowtree and Richmond all had games voided.
