  6. Play is restricted to up to 4 people on each rink with social distancing measures observed (a distance of 2m between people from different households, or 1m plus mitigations (such as face coverings or avoiding face-to-face contact) where 2m is not possible.

  7. Alternate rinks will be prepared by the greenkeeper and only those rinks should be used.

There should not be more than 14 people within the grounds at any time (up to 4 on each rink and up to 2 volunteers). There can be no spectators or guest members of other clubs.  You should not travel in a small motor vehicle with someone from outside your household (for example you should not give a lift to any players from outside your household nor accept one).
