19th MarCovid-19 hockey update

As I suspect you all know - the land of hockey has been affected just as has every other aspect of life, and there will be no hockey until 19th April and, I suspect, precious little after that, depending on how the Covid-19 situation pans out.

Your Berkshire HUA committee is pondering what to do about this year's AGM, tentatively scheduled for 14th May 2020. There are a range of options and we'll decide, and communicate with you all, a little nearer the time, as the situation becomes clearer.

In the meantime, please follow Government advice, stay healthy and look after your physical and mental health, and that of those around you.

11th MarMaintaining healthy umpires and players

Given the current Corona virus (Covid-19) situation it might be prudent to forego the traditional hand shaking before and after matches, until further notice. A suitable replacement is the "elbow nudge" or simply a verbal "thanks" and a smile.
Also worth considering, given the prevalence of radio usage now, that transferring earpieces between umpires can be a source of infection, so it would be sensible to keep to using your own earpiece, or, if you must swap, then using a wipe or similar to clean the earpiece may be prudent.
Fingers crossed for a healthy season's end.
