Player Protection/Safety

Please take a moment to read this important guidance which can be found here.

Club Kit

Great news. Our 2023-24 Kit Catalogue is here!!

We have joined with Honiton Sports in a new and exciting partnership for all our Club clothing and other equipment. Honiton Sports has an excellent reputation locally for high quality kit and excellent service. They have a wide range of other hockey playing kit and general sportswear.


New-style Men’s & Ladies’ Club shirts are now available from Honiton Sports via their new Club Shop.

Occasional Players. Can buy an old-style shirt for £5 – subject to availability.

If you still have a Club shirt from last season that you have borrowed – please return it to the Club without delay.

England Hockey’s guidance is that no equipment is to be shared due to Covid-19. We will therefore only be providing personal protection loan equipment for our goalkeepers.


We play in black Club shirts with orange and green detail, black shorts/skorts/skirt and plain black socks. 

We have recently agreed to keep the current Club colours going forward to ensure members get value for money if we change our kit suppliers in the future.

Colour clash. Captains should contact our Kit Officer for an alternative. It may be necessary to also change socks and/or shorts/skorts to a non-clashing colour. This is a player responsibility directed by the team captain.

Personal protection equipment

There is a degree of risk when playing any sport. We therefore strongly advise players to take all necessary steps to protect themselves. This is a personal decision for adult players and by parents on behalf of our playing members under U18 years of age.

The use of personal protection is strongly recommended when defending at penalty corners. The Club’s position and recommendations to members and the parents of junior members is here.

Personal protection equipment can be obtained from all good hockey equipment retailers including, Honiton Sports Shop.

Personal insurance should be considered by all our members to meet their individual needs.


The Club can provide full protective kits for its goalkeepers – senior and junior. This equipment is loaned with clear instructions to ensure Covid-19 related hygiene.

A goalkeeper may want to purchase their own kit. The Club recognises that goalkeeping equipment is a significant investment and, as a result, does not collect an annual membership subscription from keepers who own and use their own kit.
