Domestic hockey activity suspension extended until 30 June

England Hockey has taken the decision to suspend all hockey activity until 30 June 2020.

"Currently hockey activity is suspended until April 15 but, with the continuing social restrictions caused by Covid-19, this extension is pragmatic in the circumstances and provides clarity for our clubs, players, officials and volunteers. We have asked that this national position is replicated at a local level by counties, leagues and independent hockey providers.

It is hugely disappointing to curtail hockey activity in this way and there will be many league and cup competitions which will not now reach their natural conclusion. The implications of the decision affect different areas of England Hockey activity in different ways, details of which can be found below..."

We will continue to monitor the situation carefully and react as best we can during these unprecedented times. We'll keep Holcombe Hockey Club members as up-to-date as possible and look forward to hockey returning to normal when the time is right.

Where possible, players are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments. Please search #StayInWorkOut on social media for tips on how to stay active indoors.

Holcombe Park clubhouse and sports facilities will remain closed during this period of time too.

Our Summer League team is adjusting our Summer League Programme and is planning a number of 'Summer League Days' for when we hopefully resume after 30 June. The 'Summer League Days' are currently scheduled for 11 & 25 July and 8 & 15 August, where members can come together and play a small-sided tournament in selected teams during the course of the day (a few hours) - similar to our Club Day. If this interests you, even just for one day, please do continue to sign up for our Summer League in the usual way and Emma & David will keep in touch with you.

Many thanks Jon Rye (Club Chairman)
