Advice to Visiting Teams

A warm welcome to all visiting teams!

We very much look forward to your team(s) visiting us at either Ottery or Sidmouth over the coming season,

The first thing to stress is that we strongly advise that all visiting team captains consult the West Hockey League website for up-to-date and accurate information about upcoming league fixtures; it is our responsibility to ensure that the details for SOHC home games are checked and undated as necessary.

The Webmaster for our Club website posts summarised info about upcoming games (the next two weeks) at the bottom of our Home page – http://sidmouthandotteryhc.co.uk/. A fuller listing of our upcoming home fixtures appears below. Note that we operate at two venues, Ottery Leisure Centre and Sidmouth Leisure Centre – please always double check and be sure you have the correct venue!

For General Advice to Visiting Teams, which includes much of the usual info about facilities, directions, venue post codes etc, plus added Covid-related info on protocols relevant to our match venues – please read on.

General advice to visiting teams

A good starting point is our Club website’s Covid-19 page: http://sidmouthandotteryhc.co.uk/covid-19/ 

Arriving at the local facilities.

We use pitches at Ottery St Mary (EX11 1QW) and Sidmouth (EX10 9LH) Leisure Centres. Ottery LC is still sometimes referred to as Colin Tooze SC (its old name). Please make sure you have the correct venue!

Finding us: link to http://sidmouthandotteryhc.co.uk/find-us/  Please check out the Car Parking info, taking note especially of current parking restrictions at our Sidmouth venue. For Ottery, please avoid using the small fence-enclosed parking area (the first one you reach on the left in Cadhay Lane) – better to continue a further 80m along Cadhay Lane to the find the main Car Park entrance on the left.
