Nottinghamshire are helping cricket-mad families celebrate Father’s Day with a special offer for their next home LV County Championship match.

Local rivals Derbyshire are the visitors from June 15-18 and on Father’s Day - Sunday June 17 - all Dads get in free when accompanied by a child under the age of 16.

The child attending the match will be required to pay the usual ticket price of £6, unless he or she is a member of the Junior Outlaws, in which case they get in free as well. Any other children or adults in the party will need to pay in full.

Notts Marketing Manager Claire Harrison said: “Cricket is very much a family-friendly sport and we want to encourage as many supporters as possible to come and enjoy the special atmosphere of Trent Bridge.

“It’s an ideal formula for children to treat their Dads to a day at the cricket - watching the Second Division leaders in action.”

Mick Newell’s side will be especially keen to get back on track for promotion after suffering their first defeat of the season last week, and with the likes of Stephen Fleming and David Hussey in red-hot form, it’s bound to be an exciting day’s cricket.

An added bonus is that any Dads who are inspired to practice their cricket skills will be able to do so for free between 1-4pm in the Woodhead Hall, while a traditional three-course lunch is also available in the Derek Randall Suite from 12-2pm.

Advance bookings are required for the lunch, with seats costing £14.95 for adults and £7.45 for under-12s.

To book for the lunch, contact Trudie Warsop in the Sales Office on 0115 982 3042. Non-Nottinghamshire members must buy match tickets to enter the ground.
