England Hockey has worked closely with the other major team sports in England, the result of which was the publication of a “Recreational Team Sports Framework”. That work included looking at and assessing the relative risks of transmission of Covid-19 via airborne droplets and through touching surfaces. By also using a mix of player GPS data and video data to assess the amount of close contact between players, it was possible to prove that the risk of transmission of Covid-19 during competitive hockey is low. As a consequence, the sport of hockey has been given government approval to resume activity.
