Please Social Distance at all times. Facemasks must be worn in the clubhouse.

Pitch Access Plan

Green Pitch

The green pitch is STRICTLY closed on matchdays. It is for use only to exit from Pitch 2 as part of the one way.

Changing Rooms and Toilets.

Car sharing guidance


Q: How does the new Government rule of 6 impact hockey off the pitch?

A: Off the pitch participants must remain in socially distanced (2m) groups of no more than 6 people. Each group must be clearly separate from another and not mix. This includes whilst waiting to access the pitch, after you have finished your session/match and left the pitch or in the clubhouse pre or post the session/match.

Spectators need to register, upon arrival - with the NHS QR Code or via the written register. As players are deemed spectators when not within the pitch all over 16s (participants and spectators) should register on arrival.

Visting Teams

In addition to the advice above, please note 

  1. Ensure that all participants (players. coaches, managers, physio etc.) have completed a Participation Agreement
  2. Forward your attendance register to your club Covid Officer for forwarding to EH Track and Trace.
  3. Ensure your participants have performed a self-screen health assessment before leaving home.

Sponsorship We are very fortunate to benefit from the generous support of Higgins Group Plc. Higgins Group Plc is one of the largest family-owned construction companies in South East England. It was formed as the parent company of the Higgins Group of Companies in 1989. The Higgins Group moved to their prestigious new offices at One, Langston Road in May 2005. The development and success of the club would not have been possible without the long term and continuing commitment of the company to our club as its principal sponsor.

Could you sponsor or support Old Loughtonians Hockey Club?

It is important that the club continues to attract additional support and sponsorship. We welcome all levels of support (including another major sponsor alongside the Higgins Group) and potential bespoke packages are available to interested parties. Support and sponsorship can range from pitchside boards (on either of our pitches) to individual team deals. We welcome local sponsors in particular as well as national and international sponsors especially those with an interest in hockey.

Members introducing sponsors to the club (or sponsoring players or the club themselves) will benefit from free annual membership themselves. Please contact our chairman ( or the club office ( for more information or with any proposal.
