Socially Distanced Hockey

We’re back! Well, sort of. England Hockey published guidance, and the Executive Committee have worked alongside SLC to ensure we have a safe and compliant option for a phased return. Click on the picture below for the full EH document.

What does that mean at Club level? It means attendance is very limited, social distancing applies, and if rules aren’t followed, you’ll be asked to leave.

Tickets for our sessions will be available via our shop from 7pm on Thursday for the following week’s groups. One ticket per person, and tickets are non-transferable. Any questions? Get in touch via email, facebook, or your Captain. Here are our rules:

Finally, above everything else, please stay safe!
