COVID-19 and How HPS is impacted

To comply with the latest Government instructions to help stop the spread of Covid-19 we have changed the way we are operating.

Our Hitchin branch is now open 3 days a week 10am-6pm Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.

Hitchin will be opening in the mornings (10am-1pm) for walk-in customers of which 3 people will be allowed in the store at any one time. The afternoon (2pm-6pm) will be reserved for customers wishing to attend by appointment only. This will enable families to all attend together. Please note we will be shut between 1pm-2pm to clean before we re- open for our afternoon appointments.

Our Bowdon branch is now open by appointment only please fill in the form on our website or call 07497381040.

When making any appointment please note not all stock may be available, if you want a specific item please state this when you make an appointment. Please understand that despite an item being advertised online it may not be readily available if it has been tried on and subsequently quarantined for 72 hrs that day.

PLEASE NOTE: It will be mandatory for all customers to wear face masks in store as of Friday 24th July (with the exception of children under 11, people with certain disabilities, those with breathing difficulties and those accompanying someone who relies on someone to lip read).

We appreciate the guidance is changing everyday and we are doing our best to comply to the changes as fast as possible.

Our website remains open and able to accept orders but naturally we cannot guarantee next day delivery.

We are working on some exciting new projects: NEW BRANDS & NEW 2020 STOCK! Our 2020 stock will be going live in August and we are excited to showcase it to you all! In the meantime our website will be overhauled during this period in preparation for bringing you some great new ranges from the best brands in hockey next season.

We are also working on an eBay store where we will offer some seriously discounted end of line product. Both of these new platforms will be officially launched very soon.

During this time it would be a huge help for us as a business if those of you who have friends and loved ones celebrating birthdays considered buying a Hockey Pro Shop e-Gift Card as a present (available at, delivered direct to your inbox). Or maybe just get one anyway for yourself to one as something to look forward to cashing in later? As a special offer until the end of August the price of a e-Gift Card will be discounted by 10% at checkout to give you even more value, so for example if you buy a £100 voucher you will only be charged £90 but the voucher will still be worth £100 credit in-store or online. How's that for retail therapy!

Also if you're a club or school with a bit of budget left to spend then we have some serious offers on a range of product, including all goalkeeping brands. Email for more details.

We would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone in the hockey community all the very best at this difficult time. There is uncertainty all around but we are hugely optimistic that we will all be back playing the game we love very soon and we are sure like us you are looking forward to next season already. While life is different right now to anything we've ever experienced things will get back to normal sooner rather than later if we all pull together. Stay strong and take care.

The Hockey Pro Shop Team.
