Penzance HC advice to visiting teams


Penzance HC travel policy under Covid 19 restrictions.

As the season fast approaches and we have to travel away to matches, here is the clubs’ position on car sharing.

Try not to share a vehicle with those outside of your household/bubble, but if you need to please:-

  • share with the same people each time
  • open windows
  • carry hand sanitiser - to be used before and after the journey
  • if possible, travel with less people in a car to reduce proximity to each other
  • all wear face coverings
  • clean door handles/surfaces frequently touched

There is no pressure to share lifts and anyone's decisions regarding travel should be respected.


COVID-19 Please be aware that if you have not completed the below actions, you will not be allowed to train or play

England Hockey has been allowed to move to step 5 of their Return to Play plan. This means that the Government DCMS (Department for Digital, Culture. Media and Sport) has allowed competitive hockey to resume. This is great news and fixtures can now take place. We look forward to the resumption of adult and junior leagues.

What does this mean for me?

In order to adhere to Government regulations all players and clubs are required to follow guidelines.

Therefore every member who wishes to train and/or play hockey for Penzance HC needs to do the following:

1. Read the Step 4 & 5 England Hockey Player Guidance or the more comprehensive England Hockey Step 4 & 5 Guidance for coaches, volunteers and players.

2. Read, understand & sign England Hockey's "Individual Consent for Participating in Hockey under Covid-19 Restrictions" form.

Here's a video that summarises what you need to do.

Carla Pengelly is Penzance Hockey Club's Covid-19 officer. You can contact her on 07765 355650 or by email.
