Grace The Hallowed Turf
During the lunch and tea intervals, weather permitting, families and groups are welcome to step onto our hallowed turf, with a bat and ball, and crack on with an impromptu game. Please observe any instructions or requests from stewards and note that only softballs are permitted. Remember our cricket square and wickets are sacred, so please do not venture onto these.
Designated smoking areas are assigned in various concourse areas, but smoking (including e-cigarettes) is only permitted in these areas, so please refrain from smoking in your seat.
If you’ve never been before...
If you’re sitting immediate behind the wickets, please do not move around when the bowlers are bowling from your end as it can distract the batsman and disrupt the game, as well as cause embarrassment to you, which we certainly don’t want to happen!
Re-entry to the ground
If you need to leave the ground at any point, you will need to scan in and out using your match ticket or ticket code via your smartphone.
The weather can take turns during the day, so please bring clothing to cover all eventualities.
With the forecast suggesting it will be warm and sunny, we recommend that you bring and apply sunscreen regularly.
If you want to get out of the sun to watch the game, depending on the time of day, the best places to sit are at the back of the Smith Cooper Stand, the back of Fox Road Stand and Hound Road Stand (Lower).
