Hockey Pushing Forward With Return To Play!

EH have announced that from Monday 17 May we will be moving to Step 5 of our Return to Play Roadmap – Step 5; Full competitive match play, leagues and competitions resume. This means that our revised Championships offer will go ahead as planned and league play-offs, where undecided, can be concluded.

This is largely because travel restrictions are expected to ease further to allow car sharing between people from different household groups. We recommend that best practice is followed in line with the Government Safer Travel guidance.

Summer League

All the fixtures are in.

Outdoor hockey can resume from 29 March:

  • Training can start once organisers ensure all guidance is in place.
  • England Hockey recommends a maximum of 30 people in any one group, but more than one group can use a pitch as long as social distancing can be maintained outside of play and between the groups.
  • Matches (both 11-a-side and small sided) can resume once organisers can ensure all guidance is in place. Multiple matches can take place at the same venue as long as social distancing can be maintained between groups outside of matches.

Suspension of Club and Community Hockey

England Hockey has announced that the national lockdown announced on Saturday will mean no club or community hockey from 5 November until after 4 December at the earliest, therefore no league matches will take place during this time.

The latest government announcement orders all sports facilities to close and therefore club and other community hockey activity is suspended until the game is in a position to resume. http://www.englandhockey.co.uk/news.asp?itemid=49938&itemTitle=Announcement%3A+Club+Hockey+in+England+suspended+until+after+4+December&section=22
