Chapel Gate is open, with a range of measures in place to minimise the risks of Covid-19. We ask that all visitors follow government guidance and the measures that have been put in place for their safety, and the safety of others:
No changing rooms and showers will be available for use (unless otherwise agreed) until further notice. We ask all players to arrive ready to play.
Bar and catering
There will be a reduced takeaway bar and catering service operating at weekends only. This will be located between the clubhouse and changing rooms. We ask all customers to adhere to the one way queueing system and maintain distance from other customers.
We remind all visitors that they cannot bring alcohol on to site, and to refrain from using glass bottles around the site.
The clubhouse will only be open for access to reception and to the accessible toilet. There is a one way system in place that we ask all visitors to follow.
Face coverings should be worn while accessing internal spaces including the clubhouse and toilets.
One representative from each team will be asked to visit reception immediately prior to the start time to determine which pitch they will be playing on. There will also be fixture lists mounted externally by reception.
The toilets in the main clubhouse will be available for use, but we would ask all attendees to use their own facilities at home where possible, to minimise the demand on our toilets. Please maintain a 2m distance from others while queuing for toilets, and follow the one way system in place.
Access to the toilets is through the entrance on the East of the main clubhouse (opposite the hockey pitches) and there is a one way system in place.
Hand washing/sanitising facilities
Hand washing facilities are available in all open toilets, and sanitising stations are located around the main clubhouse. We ask all teams to also supply sanitiser for your officials/players to use.
Any spectators needs to maintain a 2m physical distance from anyone from outside of their household while on site. We ask teams to ensure they have a full record of attendees (both playing and non-playing) for each match, so you can assist the NHS Test and Trace service if required.
Test and Trace
To comply with the NHS Test and Trace service, it is the responsibility of all lead bookers and team managers to ensure that all match and training attendee’s contact details are retained for a minimum of 21 days.
We would also strongly encourage all site users to check in with the NHS Covid-19 app, scanning the QR codes that are displayed around the site.
