UPDATE – July 2021 

Nottingham Hockey Centre has written a COVID-19 risk assessment and plan for the site which is available to download below.

Please familiarise yourself with the measures that have been put in place.

Most legal restrictions relating to Covid ended in England on 19 July 2021. In line with Step 4 of the Government roadmap out of lockdown, hockey’s restrictions were able to ease further. Our latest guidance Managing Covid within Hockey is now available and applicable.

  • Contact Simon Hujwan immediately at: [email protected]

The following symptoms are highly suspicious of COVID-19 infection:

  • A sore throat
  • Loss of or change in normal sense of taste or smell
  • Feeling generally unwell
  • Been in close contact with / living with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 in the previous 2 weeks.

Hygiene – in line with government advice wash hands before and after activity and regularly use hand sanitiser. We strongly recommend every individual carries their own hand sanitiser.

    Equipment – use your own equipment – sticks, gum-shield, facemasks, goalkeeping equipment and ensure water bottles are full on arrival.

    Access to the facility

    • Continue to check in at the hockey venue for Track and Trace purposes on every occasion

          Playing Hockey

          • Avoid spitting
          • No handshakes with other players or close contact during goal celebrations.

            Beeston Training: 

            • We will continue to use the separated equipment cupboards for every training bubble within the club.
