Coronavirus: All Hockey Suspended

In line with the Governments announcements, England Hockey has taken the decision to suspend all national activity and is recommending all leagues and clubs suspend theirs.

Ben Rhydding Hockey Club has taken the decision to suspend all hockey activity with immediate effect.

All training activity is therefore cancelled with immediate effect.

Yorkshire Youth Hockey League activity has been cancelled.

National League Hockey (including our Ladies 1s game on Saturday) and Yorkshire Hockey have postponed all fixtures until at least 15th April.

As we become aware of further updates and guidance we will update this page.  England Hockey have suspended all activity unto 15th April and we are likely to suspend activities until at least this date.

The Spade Work has Started

At last, work on the new pitch has started. In the picture is Mens’ President offering to help a hand with his spade. Hopefully the work will progress a little faster with the digger as well.

Site Entrance Changes

Now that work has started on the new Astro turf, the IGS entrance and car park will not be accessible for a short period of time. We are aware that many users of the astro are ‘dropped off’ in that area – please bear this mind for the next few months as the arrangements are likely to change at any point.
