Leeds Hockey Club (LHC) is aware of the latest guidance published by England Hockey on 21 May 2020 and the fact they will be reviewing their latest guidance in light of this evening’s announcement from the UK Government.


LHC is regularly in contact with our facility partners at Sports Park Weetwood and will work with them once the facility reopens to allow for our members to get back onto the pitch in the safest possible way.


Some staff at Sports Park Weetwood have been furloughed in line with UK Government Guidance and the University of Leeds are reviewing their staffing needs on a regular basis. Until Sports Park Weetwood reopens LHC cannot operate at the facility.


LHC will communicate any formal change in our operations via e-mail and the usual communication channels.

Leeds Hockey Club will be following the advice set out by Public Health England and England Hockey regarding the current outbreak of COVID-19 Coronavirus.


The England Hockey statement is available here

  • Club hockey fixtures and training are to continue unless advice from the Government changes

  • If you are unwell with cough OR high temperatures OR influenza like symptoms, please do not attend training or fixtures - follow Public Health England's advice on self isolation. UK Government advise is here.

  • Instead of the traditional handshake at the start and end of the game, we are encouraging players to tap sticks like this. A warm smile and thanks of appreciation to officials may be more appropriate at this current time.

  • All players and officials are responsible for their own safety equipment (goalkeeping kit, facemasks, mouth guards, whistles, shin pads etc) and we would encourage everyone to ensure they are clean and not shared amongst team-mates.

    • ask if any team mates can bring any spare facemasks so defenders can have their own mask for the game

    • if defenders need to share facemasks, the officials should be notified to ask to stop time to allow a wipe down of the mask with an alcohol cleaning wipe / apply alcohol hand gel to tissue and wipe mask

    • all masks to be cleaned post game

  • Please ensure all team members wash their hands regularly - at least on arrival and leaving the ground where you are playing.
